Students studying together

Big ideas. Practical experience.

The UVic Faculty of Humanities is a vibrant community of students and faculty who think critically, read great literature, explore the past and seek out rich cultural experiences.

Studying history, philosophy, languages, literatures and cultures opens you up to new worlds and inspires you to think about your own world in new ways.
—Michael Carelse, English honours student

Our beautiful Pacific Rim location, rich with Indigenous and international perspectives, encourages you to examine the world through different lenses and think critically about vital issues that matter to you.
