Welcome to the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS)

LA&PS is committed to supporting students during COVID-19. Our priority remains keeping students, staff and faculty safe. As a result, on-campus services remain limited. However, Fall term is now underway remotely and all student supports are available online or by phone. We are committed to offering students a full selection of courses, and will continue to follow the advice of public health officials and governmental directives as we consider a return to on-campus activities in the future. You can reach us at lapsrec@yorku.ca. For more information on the University’s response to the coronavirus, please visit the COVID-19 website for the most recent updates.

As the largest liberal arts faculty in Canada, we offer an education that thinks big and dreams even bigger. We enhance the capacity of our graduates as global leaders for the 21st century by making the liberal arts a critical foundation for learning and by bridging the divide between liberal and professional education. Our scholars lead ground-breaking, award-winning research that responds to society’s needs. We proudly deliver top-ranked programs in the social sciences, humanities, and professional fields.
