Welcome to
Carleton University, Canada’s Capital University, is a dynamic research and
teaching institution providing high-quality, post-secondary education to over
25,000 full- and part-time students. The university’s location in the nation’s
capital offers its students access to a wealth of resources unavailable
elsewhere. As well, the university’s beautiful riverside campus provides a
picturesque and stimulating environment in which to live and study.
As a student in the Bachelor of Arts (BA) program, you can choose your major discipline
from 35 diverse areas of study. You can explore one area of interest in depth, combine
two areas, earn a specialization in one aspect of your major discipline, or even propose
your own course of study. Many of our programs offer the opportunity to gain valuable
practical experience outside the classroom, either through co-operative (co-op) education,
internships or field work. No matter which area you choose to study or how the program
is delivered, you will find that Carleton’s comprehensive, interdisciplinary and innovative
Bachelor of Arts programs are excellent preparation for success in today’s complex

      Dear prospective student,
      On behalf of the two Faculties that administer the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree program at
      Carleton, we invite you to explore this guide and perhaps take the time to visit our campus.
      You are always very welcome!
      The Bachelor of Arts comprises Carleton’s largest degree program, and is intended to provide
      you with both a solid introduction to one or more academic disciplines and a broad range of
      transferable skills that will help you to succeed in whatever life brings after graduation.
      Each discipline within our two Faculties focuses on some aspect of the human experience—
      both historical and contemporary. You will learn to examine issues from a variety of
      perspectives, apply appropriate research techniques, and probe numerous sources
      for information and make critical assessments of your findings. You will also develop
      your thinking, writing and presentation skills in a supportive and stimulating learning
      environment, under the guidance of outstanding teachers and scholars.
      Many opportunities exist to supplement what you learn in our classrooms with experiences
      in the outside world, through both international exchanges and a broad range of co-
      op, practicum and service-learning options. Our goal is to prepare our BA graduates for
      stimulating and rewarding careers, both in Canada and beyond.
      The following guide provides brief introductions to the many exciting options within the
      Bachelor of Arts program. And if you have any questions afterwards—just ask!
