This is an environment where you are encouraged to exercise your curiosity and uncover new interests and abilities. From Indigenous to cinema studies, and forest conservation to geophysics — you can combine programs in widely different areas to diversify your knowledge and skills.

Some subjects you may only scratch the surface of, and others you will dive into with complete curiosity and an appetite to learn more (see page 23 for complete list of programs). The world’s top researchers and scholars are right here. They are working to solve some of the toughest questions facing our planet and will be your mentors. No matter how big or small a class may be, your professors will engage you in a conversation or debate, and help you gain research, work and field experience. The majority of your

classes will be small and interactive, complemented by once-in-a-lifetime lectures in the historic Convocation Hall. Your learning will spill out into the local community through research, coursework, volunteer opportunities and internships. Or it will take you across borders, into nations and cultures abroad. As you join other bright minds from around the world on this journey, you will find extraordinary inspiration from each other and undoubtedly lift each other higher.

Global network that’s 540,000 alumni strong. More program choices than anywhere else in Canada.


Inspired learning can happen in a variety of ways.

Janessa Duran, double major in peace, conflict, and justice, and diaspora and transnational studies

As a science student, I found that the output of research is one of the biggest things I like about the university and what we are known for worldwide. There are so many opportunities in hospitals and labs nearby. Victor Lee, double major in neuroscience and animal physiology

To hear 1,500 students react is really cool, and that’s something you don’t get in a class of 30. It wouldn’t be the same experience. It can be really fun to try to blow the minds of that many students at the same time! Ashley Waggoner Denton, psychology professor

Faculty of Arts & Science

Aparajita Bhandari, double major in psychology and statistics

I took two first-year seminars (Pulp Fiction and Political Spaces) and they are really cool, small classes. The topics are different and obscure, and the conversations were always so interesting.

Just getting to be in classes that I really enjoy is so satisfying. My Introduction to Psychology prof is amazing. Beginning to end, it’s like being in a TEDTalk each week.

I’m in the Research Opportunities Program (ROP), where you get to work alongside a prof and help with research. I work in a children’s development lab, which looks at how children incorporate types of information into their decision making and learning compared to adults. Now that I’ve had my first experience in a lab, I feel more confident.

I travelled to Myanmar with my class as part of an International Course Module. The trip was enriching on all dimensions. We met with people involved in democratization and peace building — people you would never meet under other circumstances, including political leaders, media and heads of multinational businesses. Outside the classroom…

Outside the classroom…

I am involved with the Ideas for the World program, which gives people from the community — perhaps people new to the country or those who never got to go to university —  a chance to study here. A husband and wife from Syria participated and shared what it was like to live in the conflict and how their whole definition of happiness changed. This program has been one of the most amazing experiences.

I helped organize the INDePth conference —  an amazing student-run event where the goal is to enable students from leading Canadian and international universities to work together to better understand economic and social development in regional contexts. I think it’s one of the most professional student initiatives on campus — it’s been amazing to be a part of it.


EXPERIENCES I had the opportunity to work in a few local Toronto hospitals and also at the Wheeler Microfluidics Laboratory. One of the areas of focus in the lab is drug screening on cancer cells. This lab is actually more about engineering. Engineering and biology may appear to be unrelated, but I have found that gaining experience in another area has helped me improve my understanding of biology concepts. Outside the classroom…

I was the co-president of the U of  T Autism Alliance, where we created fun events for young people with autism so they could develop social skills and make new friends in a safe environment. It showed me more about the social side of what I was learning and the struggles of others. It’s important if you want a career in medicine to understand the advocacy side.

These first-year programs focus on developing critical thinking, speaking and writing skills in a close-knit atmosphere.

Student Q&A

THE COLLEGE ADVANTAGE

Q: What role does your college play in your student experience?

Lisa Boivin, specialist in bioethics

I can literally walk through my college and it’s like a little family. My college registrar is extraordinarily supportive, not only in facilitating different things I need, but also by getting me in touch with other people and resources that have been very beneficial to my experience.

Jemel Ganal, major in book and media studies, minor in cinema studies

On my application I remember ranking them based on the buildings that looked the most “old school” and historical. In the end, I had friends in different colleges and went to as many social events at other colleges as at my own. If you’re open to making friends, you can be involved in amazing activities all around campus.

Within each college you will find:

• Academic and financial advising

University of Toronto

• Academic success programs • Social and cultural events • Health and wellness counselling • Orientation activities • Residence accommodations

10

• Student government, clubs and organizations

The college system is at the heart of the Arts & Science experience. Whether you live on- or off-campus, you will be a member of a college —  a close-knit community with support services and social events to make university an exceptional time.

Victor Lee, double major in human biology and physiology

My college has been very supportive throughout any academic challenges. Whenever I ask my college registrar for advice, they help explore my options with me.


FYI COLLEGE MEMBERSHIP

When you join Arts & Science, you will be assigned membership in a college community. On your U of  T application, you will rank the colleges in order of preference and you will find out your college membership when you receive your offer of admission. The number of students assigned to each college varies depending on the resources available to support its members.

Nancy Vu, specialist in neuroscience

There is definitely a different sense of community in each one. I was a commuter student in first year, but I attended Frosh Week with my college and became a Frosh Leader the year after. It’s a big way in which I made my friends here.

Pascal Chong, specialist in accounting

I love my college, and I wish I had gotten more involved right from first year. Your college offers a balance from everyone you see in your classes and program, and is a chance to meet different people outside of that.

There’s no “right” way to rank your college preferences on your application. Some of the factors below might be important to you, but rest assured, each college is special and will support you throughout your time at U of  T: Location on campus Residence type and space Size of the community Activities and clubs Architecture and physical appearance

It’s a great way to find a community here, especially if you’re moving away from home. For me personally, I actually spent more time at another college because most of my friends from class happened to be there.

Take a campus tour or attend an open house event to see the colleges and get to know the characteristics of each community.

Tip

Eros Grinzato, double major in economics and contemporary Asian studies

My college was such a positive and inclusive space to be living in first year. All of my best friends here are still the ones I met in residence.

Recommendation from family or friends

Tip Colleges sponsor different academic programs, but your college membership does not restrict your choice of studies in any way. In every college, you will have access to all courses and programs offered in the Faculty of Arts & Science.

In addition to the U of T application, some colleges have other application requirements for membership consideration. Learn more at uoft.me/colleges

Faculty of Arts & Science

I remember when I was applying I based my decision on getting a single room. I had no idea that my college would become such a huge part of my life. It’s where I’ve had campus jobs, met my best friends and benefited from the academic and personal support.

CAREER LAUNCH Alumni Experiences

Alumni will tell you that their education was about more than textbooks. They learned how to ask good questions, how to build a network of peers and mentors and how to create experiences that are both personally and professionally rewarding.

Julie Bristow, H.B.A.  —  President & CEO, Bristow Global Media, Inc.

University of Toronto

Julie has been influencing how Canadians watch television for the past 20 years. She has created thousands of hours of original content, built entire entertainment divisions from scratch, innovated new and exciting ways to reach new audiences and garnered multiple industry and business awards for her contributions and leadership. Q: Looking back, what skills were most valuable when you made the transition from university to the working world?

Communication skills. The most important skill set for any career. Being a liberal arts student demands a level of clear and concise writing and verbal skills and much-needed critical thinking skills — all essential for professional success in any field.

Morgan Wyatt, H.B.Sc.   —  CEO, Autom River Inc.

Following his undergraduate studies, Morgan completed a Master’s at Imperial College London and his PhD at McMaster University in chemical biology. He is the co-founder of Autom River Inc. and the creator of Greenlid Envirosciences, the first fully compostable compost bin, which earned support on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. His most recent endeavour is Biotraps, the first biodegradable mosquito trap targeted to eliminate mosquitoborne illnesses. These groundbreaking inventions have earned him many academic and researchbased awards. Q: What advice would you give to students beginning their university careers?

Keep an open mind as you’re taking courses and don’t come with a preconceived notion of where you have to end up. I came from a small town and didn’t even realize what types of jobs are out there. When you get to a place like U of  T, you realize there are endless options.

FYI BACKPACK TO BRIEFCASE

All Arts & Science students are encouraged to participate in Backpack to Briefcase (b2B), a popular program that offers these valuable networking, advising and mentorship opportunities:

Career Centre Workshops

“There are so many networking opportunities to meet local and international employers. Recruiters respect our programs and what it takes to study here.” Asher Minden-Webb, specialist in computer science

Developing the confidence to approach jobs and new opportunities is as important as the theory you learn in the classroom. The Career Centre offers workshops on topics such as networking, job interviews and how to use social media as a professional — so that you graduate with a set of skills to help you flourish in your career. Alumni/Student Networking Events Meet successful A&S alumni at speed-networking nights, career panel discussions and industry nights. Build your network, hear how alumni made their transitions through and out of university, and speak to them about your own path. Mentorship Meals

Q: What do you remember as a defining moment from your time at U of T?

When I came to U of  T I did not speak English well at all. But I had such a supportive group of teachers and classmates who pulled together for me and went out of their way to help me learn. I felt like I couldn’t quit, because they believed in me.
