Interested in a rich path to undergraduate education that mixes Humanities and Social Sciences training? The Arts & Contemporary Studies (ACS) program strikes a balance between theoretical and practical education. A unit within the Faculty of Arts, ACS’s core interdisciplinary curriculum, combined with the various major Options and Minor choices, ensures that students graduate with a wide array of professional choices and opportunities.

Our students

The ACS program prides itself on students who…

  • Are curious and engaged;
  • Care about the community in which they live;
  • Want to work in creative areas but also want to access studies  that are professionally related; and
  • Want an energetic, high spirited, and diversified University experience.

"The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium - that is, of any extension of ourselves - result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology."
