Our Arts with Impact

In 2020, what do the Arts mean to students, professors and the contemporary world? Our Arts with Impact website explores this question and highlights the outreach, impact and community efforts of our faculty, alumni and students. Check out SMUArts.ca.


Meet Christopher Webb BA'97, whose story shows how a passion for the Arts can pay dividends when the right education meets the right connections.


The BA Advising Centre continues to offer Academic Advising services to students during this period of virtual operations. Academic Advisors are here to help you successfully complete the term, and plan for future terms.

We ask that students make initial contact with Advisors via email at BAadvising@smu.ca. Our Advisors will make arrangements for advising via phone, video chat, email or other virtual means as needed.

Thanks for your cooperation. For ongoing COVID-19 updates from Saint Mary’s, please continue to visit smu.ca/covid19.
