24 majors, 50 minors, hundreds of unique courses, unlimited potential. That’s Arts at U of G. Our Bachelor of Arts program is considered one of the most comprehensive and customizable BA programs in Canada. Here’s why:

1. Your options are (quite literally) endless

Choose a major, add a minor, complete a general degree with an area of concentration or go undeclared. We offer majors that can lead to graduate studies and careers in a broad variety of fields.

You can also take advantage of the “Major to be Determined” designation and test drive some courses from different areas before declaring a major! The choice is yours Future Gryphons!

2. We have stellar instructors

Students have nothing but positive things to say about Professor John Walsh. Learn what makes him passionate about Classics and History on our IGTV 90 second interviews!

Lawrence Hill, author of the Book of Negros and recipient of the Order of Canada, is another one of the amazing professors for our BA program.

3. We want you to explore campus and the world

We encourage travel, exchanges and involvement in our campus to broaden your idea of what art is. If travelling isn’t for you, The Art Gallery of Guelph and the largest Sculpture Park in Canada are located right on campus. Visit the Study Abroad website for more information about our opportunities for travel.

4. Our courses are relevant to today’s world

From environmental governance and political science, to more unconventional courses like Violence in Society, a BA will help you make sense of what’s on the news and identify your own solutions.

5. Design your own education

Minors are optional but offered for most degree programs here at the U of G. Why not get some credit for your special interests and hobbies? Check out our complete list of minors on our website.

6. Our Arts are for everyone

Whether studying music, studio art or theatre; we start from the basics. There are no auditions or portfolios required for admission because we believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to discover and explore their creative side.
