Academic Opportunities

The Faculty of Arts & Science is a vibrant, intellectual community of students and scholars.

Here you will find a broad spectrum of academic choices. Some subjects you may only scratch the surface of, and others you will dive into with complete curiosity and an appetite to learn more. 

Students at U of T learn from the best and brightest in their field. Many faculty are the world's top researchers and are working to solve some of the toughest questions facing our planet. You will have many opportunities to work alongside them, gaining research, work and field experience.
