The University of British Columbia (UBC), established in 1908, is one of Canada’s leading research universities and is consistently ranked among the top 40 in the world. The Vancouver campus is 30 minutes from the heart of downtown Vancouver, a spectacular location that is a ‘must-see’ for any visitor to the city — where snow-capped mountains meet ocean, and breathtaking vistas greet you around every corner. The campus is home to more than 37,000 undergraduate and 10,000 graduate students.
While at UBC, students will study in the Faculty of Arts – a research-intensive faculty encompassing a full range of courses in the social sciences, humanities and creative and performing arts. The Faculty provides compelling opportunities to explore and choose among 2,000 courses taught by more than 750 scholars who are leaders in their fields. As the university’s largest academic unit, the Faculty educates more than 13,000 students in bachelors, masters and doctoral programs in 16 departments, four schools, the Museum of Anthropology, the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, and a variety of interdisciplinary programs.
