Faculty of Arts

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 new and returning students during this period of virtual operations. Academic Advisors are here to help you successfully complete the term, and plan for future terms.

Students can now book appointments through our new online booking system, with a range of advising options available: telephone, email, and online video chat with Microsoft Teams or Zoom meetings. Students can also email questions to advisors at BAadvising@smu.ca

Thanks for your cooperation. For ongoing virtual university updates from Saint Mary’s, please continue to visit smu.ca/virtualuniversity.
