Arts @ Work

The University of Regina Faculty of Arts can help you turn your passion into a career.

The Faculty of Arts offers over 20 areas of study in the social sciences and humanities. Together, these programs are referred to as the “Arts” (or the "Liberal Arts") and their study will lead you to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. Though they approach things differently, what these areas of study have in common is that they are all concerned with aspects of human society, culture and experience. Arts majors get to study important issues like justice, poverty, health and well-being, women’s rights, the economy, and politics. These subjects teach us more about ourselves and the world we live in.

Because they study the most important and valuable aspects of the human experience – our cultures, traditions and intellectual life – Arts students expand their personal horizons and enrich their lives. They study what they love and become well-rounded people with a broad base of knowledge. They tend to be passionate about what they do, and as graduates they bring that passion to their careers, along with the valuable skills and experience they develop through the course of their degree.

An Arts education is more concerned with the development of fundamental thinking and learning skills than with training students for specific careers. The good news about this is that the fundamental skills you learn through an Arts education are applicable to virtually every career field imaginable! For your personal and career development, the value of your Arts degree is its versatility.

You will also learn about the ways you can enhance your learning through the University of Regina's career resources, and through hands-on work experience. Read on - and see how Arts can WORK for you.
