Semester Exchange - Queen's University

Semester Exchange - Queen's University

Queen’s University is one of the few universities in Canada with an integrated Faculty of Arts and Science. This integrated structure allows students to choose from a large selection of academic courses available at Queen’s in the creative arts, humanities, social sciences, and life and physical sciences. The focus in the Faculty of Arts and Science is on developing the whole person: preparing citizens for an increasingly global society. Rather than passively absorbing knowledge, students learn how to investigate and think for themselves, putting their newly acquired knowledge to work.

The International Programs Office (IPO) provides academic support for internationalization in the Faculty of Arts and Science by delivering information and counsel to undergraduate Arts and Science students about international opportunities. The IPO also works cooperatively with its exchange partners all over the world and facilitates the integration of incoming students from partner universities into courses in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
