O que eu aprenderei?

One of the joys of being in university is having time to broaden your horizons, discover new interests, and get involved in a range of extracurricular activities. Liberal Studies gives you that freedom.

Commonly called a liberal arts degree at other universities, Liberal Studies allows you can explore many different subjects in the humanities, social sciences, languages and cultures, and fine and performing arts – plus courses you’d like to take from some of Waterloo's other faculties.

You can add focus to your degree with a minor or minors, or keep it completely general. (And if you do fall passionately in love with a subject along the way, you can switch into a major at any point.) An academic advisor can help you plan your degree and choose courses.

You can also enrich your learning through Waterloo’s EDGE (experiential education) certificate and Global Experience Certificate programs – or by studying Liberal Studies as part of the Honours Arts and Business degree.

What will you learn?

First-year courses

In first year you won't have any required courses for your degree - meaning the classes you'll take will be completely up to you! In upper years, most of the classes you'll take will be offered by the Faculty of Arts.

Customize your degree

You can also add additional areas of interest and expertise by including a minor (or minors) as part of your degree.


The incredible flexibility of the Liberal Studies program means that your career prospects are limited only by your imagination and how you choose to develop your skills and knowledge while at Waterloo. You can pursue a wide range of advanced degrees – such as law, education, and master's degrees – or launch your career in government, education, finance, insurance, law, business, and more.
