The Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS) is the largest of 11 Faculties at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

LA&PS was opened on July 1, 2009, combining the strengths of the former Faculty of Arts and the Atkinson Faculty of Liberal & Professional Studies.

With an enrollment of more than 27,000 undergraduate and graduate students served by 21 academic units, and over 80 academic programs, LA&PS is by some measures the largest Faculty in Canada and is larger than two-thirds of Canadian universities.
