Arts

Academic Advising in the Faculty of Arts is dynamic but structured. Your level of study (progress through your degree) will determine your academic advisor:

  • All first-year students are enrolled in Arts 1000 or Arts 1100. As an Arts 1000/1100 student, your academic advisor is your tutorial leader until you have completed your first-year.
  • Second-year students are advised by the Arts Advising Team.
  • Upper-year students – completed at least 60ch – are in a position to select a Major or Honours program and are advised by a faculty advisor in their chosen program(s).
  • Transfer students should contact the Coordinator of Advising and First Year Experience.
  • Joint/concurrent program students are advised by the Faculty of Arts and an advisor from the other faculty/program (e.g. Science, Computer Science, NBCCD).
