Special programs at St. Francis Xavier University

Students in the Faculty of Arts at St. Francis Xavier University have the option to apply to special first-year programs: the Humanities Colloquium and the Social Justice Colloquium. The Humanities Colloquium explores meaning and value in human lives through some of the great books of Western civilization taught in linked sections of English, Art History, and Philosophy. Participants in the Social Justice Colloquium are enrolled in dedicated sections of Anthropology, Global History, and Gender Studies. A service learning experience is at the core of the program.

Students who are interested in combining the study of arts and sciences have two unique options. The Bachelor of Arts and Science in Health offers an interdisciplinary approach to health, drawing on scientific, social and humanistic fields. Students who study health from joint arts and science perspectives will have a balanced understanding
of the interrelated nature of health, including medical, social, ethical and cultural factors. The Bachelor of Arts and Science in Climate and Environment allows students to examine both the scientific and social dimensions of our environment. This degree program will examine the physical, biological and chemical composition of our world, our societal relationship with nature and how the Earth’s energy balance affects our environment.

In addition, St. FX has introduced a four-year degree program in Public Policy and Governance. Students will gain insight and skills in public affairs, leadership, how and why government decisions are made, and options for tackling a broad range of public issues, within local and global communities.

More information about these programs is available here.
