The Faculty of Arts is one of the two oldest faculties of the University of Alberta in Alberta, Canada. The Faculty of Arts was founded in 1908 initially as the Faculty of Arts & Science. Its distinguished graduates include Colonel The Honourable George F.G. Stanley, The Right Honourable D. Roland Michener, The Right Honourable Joe Clark, Preston Manning, Paul Gross, and Katherine Govier, to name only a few.
The Faculty is situated in several buildings across the University campus and currently has an enrolment of approximately 6200 full-time equivalent undergraduates and 700 graduate students. Students in most other Faculties also enroll in Arts courses. The Dean of the Faculty is historian Lesley Cormack. Dr. Cormack was previously Dean of Arts and Social Sciences at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver from 2007–2010, and before that spent 17 years at the University of Alberta.
Over $9,000,000 was granted to Arts faculty members in the 2011-12 fiscal year to conduct research.
Since 1989, twenty-three Arts faculty members have been elected to the fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada, and six have received the 3M teaching award. Since 1982, twenty-three Arts faculty members have won Rutherford Awards.
