Why earn a Bachelor of Arts degree?

UFV’s Faculty of Arts offers a BA degree program with a wide variety of‌ majors, extended minors, and minors. Our goal is to help students realize their potential as members of local and global communities, as inheritors of traditions, and as creators of possible futures. Maintaining high academic standards, we offer innovative disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and applied degrees and diplomas, which will prepare you for both continued scholarship and employment.

Why study at UFV?

At UFV, we have designed academically challenging programs to meet students’ intellectual, artistic, and vocational needs. Our students are engaged in learning that integrates theory and practice and that draws connections between the methods and subject-matter of different disciplines. We offer small class sizes, personal attention, and a student centred community. Breadth and flexibility characterize our wide range of programs, as does direct relevance to UFV’s Fraser Valley region. At the same time, there is an international and cross-cultural focus to much of our teaching and research. But in all that we do, we are guided by a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. A UFV BA will prepare you for employment, entrepreneurship, further education, and the social and ethical obligations of citizenship — both locally and globally. In short, it prepares you for life.

How much will it cost?

It’s best to consult the Fees and Other Costs section of the UFV calendar for tuition fees, keeping in mind that new fees are usually set each May. You should also visit the UFV Financial Aid and Awards office, which facilitates the disbursement each year of about $12 million in federal and provincial student loans, grants, bursaries, scholarships, and awards to UFV students.
