Letter from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Arts & Social Sciences!

Everyone is different; education is a personal journey. Therefore, we offer a variety of ways to structure your degree. Depending on what you’re looking for, you can take a SASS degree in three or four years with options of honours, a major, double major, minor, or a concentration. Develop a combination that’s right for you by talking to your Enrolment Services Professional!

One of the greatest thing about SASS is the opportunity to apply in-class learning in real-life situations outside of the classroom. These opportunities include co-ops, internships, work placements, exchanges and much more.

The Boardmore Playhouse, CBU Art Gallery, and Beaton Institute, just to name a few, are the envy of other small universities. These arts and culture facilities open doors to internships, summer employment, extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, and exciting career paths you may never have thought of.
