As a Faculty of Arts and Science, the breadth of research is unlike most other research institutions in Canada. Every day, we push the boundaries of knowledge in each of the Faculty’s three major sectors: humanities, sciences and social sciences.

We take pride in a legacy of innovation and discovery that has changed the way we think about the world. Our researchers are actively engaged in partnerships with industry, governments and non-governmental organizations in the hopes of meeting social, economic and environmental challenges and opportunities. Faculty members regularly win top international and national awards, as well as prizes, research fellowships and elected memberships.
