  4. 4. Queen’s casts a “potent and mysterious spell.” 2
  5. 5. So said a Queen’s principal a long time ago. It’s the beauty of the place, its history, its reputation for excellence. More, it’s the people. The students, the professors, the artists and the visionaries – a community defined by its spirit of initiative.Working together, questioning, imagining, creating – making a difference. 3
  6. 6. The Queens Student: You Queen’s attracts students who want to excel, and who want to do. Surrounded by bright, motivated peers, and aided and encouraged by Queen’s supportive atmosphere, you’ll spend four years being taught by some of the finest academic minds anywhere – acclaimed philosophers and social scientists, innovative engineers and first- rate scientists. Queen’s challenges students intellectually, and they rise to the challenge. But for Queen’s students, the university experience is more than what happens in the classroom. It’s working on reducing the university’s carbon footprint, or providing local school kids with the chance to attend a summer science camp. It’s immersing yourself in Queen’s famous school spirit, by taking part in a sport or cheering from the sidelines. ’ 
  7. 7. 5 Queen’s students come from more than 90 countries and all across Canada, and from every imaginable background – small towns and suburbs, urban highrises and First Nations’communities. You’ll meet people like yourself – and others who are very different. Your fellow students will be among the most interesting, creative and provocative individuals you will ever encounter. They will challenge you. You won’t always agree with them, but you will get a big part of your university education from them, in conversations over meals or in late night discussions in residence rooms. 88.9% Incoming Average of the 1st year class: The Queen’s experience doesn’t end with graduation. The friendships you make will last the rest of your life. Wherever you go, whatever path you choose – business or government, law or medicine, the media or the arts – you will find and work with fellow Queen’s graduates. An international, cross-generational community of excel- lence, people committed to dreaming and doing, to living the Queen’s spirit.
  8. 8. 6 studentLIFEqueensu.ca/studentaffairs
  9. 9. 7 Successful students are balanced students. They know there is more to the university experience than marks and assignments. That, no matter how dedicated they are, they balance work and play, study time and extracurricular activities. Queen’s will help you find your balance. Looking for a way to get involved with others? Want to make a difference, locally or globally? Need to recharge your spiritual batteries or just blow off some steam? There’s a group to join, someone to talk to, or a team to play with. We also support your health and wellness. We create a welcoming living and learning environment and help you boost your school performance. All part of making sure you succeed. And Queen’s wants you to succeed. studentLIFE
  10. 10. 8 SUPPORTINGYOUR SUCCESS When you arrive at Queen’s, you are very excited, ready for the adventure, ready to learn and ready to work. The transition to university life is a big one – and part of it is adjusting to the challenges and workload that are part of being a Queen’s student. At Queen’s you are never alone. We have many offices dedicated to helping you learn, think and do.

  11. 11. STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES Queen’s is committed to an inclusive and accessible campus community. There are services and resources across our campus to help students with disabilities, including our Adaptive Technology Centre, the Dis- ability Services Office and more. Check out the Acces- sibility @ Queen’s website at queesnu.ca/equity (click on“Accessibility”) to get an idea of all Queen’s has to offer. We assist students by... • facilitating access to information, services, space and activities; • promoting autonomy; • providing advocacy and support; • recommending accommodations; and • educating the Queen's community about the ways in which the above objectives may be supported and empowered. If you are a student with a disability and think you may require academic accommodations you will register with the Disability Services Office (DSO) after you are admitted to Queen’s and accept your offer of admission. LIFEstudent If you have a learning disability or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder you will need to send in your most recent psycho-educational assessmen as early as possible, before coming to Queen’s, so that advising staff can review it in advance of yo appointment. For more information on documenta tion requirements for all disabilities, please visit our website. If you have any questions about our services or documentation requirements please contact us. Office: 613-533-6467 Fax: 613-533-6284 Email: hcds.dso@queensu.ca Website: queensu.ca/hcds/ds t ur - ACADEMIC ADVISING No matter what faculty or school you belong to at Queen’s, there are people on staff to help you with your academics. 9 To learn more about library services and adaptive technology available visit: http://library.queensu.ca/websrs
  12. 12. 10 FOUR DIRECTIONS ABORIGINAL STUDENT CENTRE Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre is committed to enhancing the development and well-being of the Queen’s University Aboriginal Community. We encourage all Queen’s students to develop an awareness and appreciation of the history and current experiences of Aboriginal people in Canada. In keeping with the teachings of the Four Directions, the Centre strives to support Aboriginal students in balancing their academic, spiritual, physical and emotional development. • Cultural programming is determined by student interest. Past programs include a drum-making workshop, moccasin-making workshop, guest speakers and storytellers, traditional teachings, Full Moon Ceremonies, and a medicine garden. • Visiting Elder supports students in their education journey. The Elder is an invaluable resource to students and staff by providing support, guidance and a leadership role. The Elder is available to meet with students on a one-on-one basis. • Student lounge provides a relaxing atmosphere where students can study, write essays, socialize and hold meetings. • Academic and career assistance is available for course and program selection, working with faculty to develop strong essay-writing skills, and assisting students in exploring career options, peer mentorship and academic zone. • Resources include an Indigenous-focused library, a list-serve providing details about Aboriginal events on campus and in the surrounding communities. We also have a fully-equipped kitchen, free laundry facilities and wireless internet for students. • Social events include a welcome back barbeque, Early Move-In Day, and regular Three Sisters Feasts for students and other members of the Queen’s and local Aboriginal community. These events create a strong sense of community for students and give them an opportunity to meet and make new friends. • Professional staff includes a Director, Aboriginal Community Liaison, Aboriginal Student Success Strategist, Aboriginal Advisor, and an Administrative Coordinator who are available full-time to assist you. In recognition of the need to encourage participation by members of the Aboriginal community in post- secondary education, Aboriginal students are eligible to apply under the Aboriginal Admission Policy. The AAP is a pathway for admission to the first year of a full-time, first-entry undergraduate degree program. For more information, please see page 94 and contact the Aboriginal Community Liaison by emailing fd.recruiter@queensu.ca.

  14. 14. kingstonBYDAY For the years you are at Queen’s, Kingston will be your home. A beautiful city beautifully located, Kingston combines big-city sophistication with small-town livability. Campus life can sometimes feel all-consuming, particularly when essays are due and exams are looming, but Kingston is worth taking the time to explore, even if, maybe especially, you are feeling stressed by work. 12 Try to count the total number of plaques in town marking where Sir John A. Macdonald lived, worked, or had his mail sent.

  36. 36. 28 THINK GLOBALLY Many Queen’s students enhance their education with an international experience. You may choose to study for your entire first year, or an upper-year term, at the Bader International Study Centre, Queen's campus in the United Kingdom. Or perhaps your sights are set on an international exchange – you can take a language course before you go! Maybe you’ll choose to experience the world closer to home by getting involved in one of the many student-led organizations that are working to make life better for global citizens – socially, politically, environmentally, and economically. queensu.ca/international
  37. 37. 2929 thinkGLOBALLY International Opportunities with Queen’s BADER INTERNATIONAL STUDY CENTRE (BISC) Providing a remarkable venue for study and a gateway to Europe and beyond, the Bader International Study Centre in East Sussex, UK or "the Castle," as it is known by Queen's students, is a unique learning environment. Students from around the world have the opportunity to pursue studies in a truly international setting while earning credits toward their academic degree programs. Students may opt to spend their entire first year at the BISC as part of the innovative First-Year Program, or they may decide to spend one or more terms in the BISC Upper-Year Program. If you don’t decide to say,“Yes”to Queen’s, you can still study at the Castle. Many students from universities other than Queen’s choose to study for a term, or participate in one of our Field Studies courses in the summer. EXCHANGE Perhaps you have decided you would like to study a new language. What better way to learn, than to immerse yourself in a new culture and a new language by going on exchange? Or maybe you’ve decided you would really love to involve yourself in deeper study of a particular topic. Why not visit the university that is doing ground-breaking research in that area? Students go on exchange for many reasons. What will your reason be? Queen’s has a robust exchange program with 150 opportunities in 50 countries around the world. See page 31 for a detailed list of the exchange opportunities at Queen’s QUEEN’S-BLYTH WORLDWIDE: LEARN BY DOING You don’t have to go on exchange or even be a Queen’s student to enjoy a Queen’s international experience. Imagine earning Queen’s University credits while studying environmental policy in Costa Rica, art history in Italy, or yoga in India. Queen’s-Blyth Worldwide focuses on learning by doing and provides exciting and inno- vative courses with a substantial field-studies program in a small-class setting. Queen's courses are offered in intensive 3-week summer sessions in countries around the world. Students from over 30 universities across Canada have taken over 20 different courses ranging from the humanities and social sciences to the natural and physical sciences.

  46. 46. 38 Faculty of Arts and Science The Faculty of Arts and Science is a place where exceptional students learn to analyze and think critically, communicate and debate, interpret and judge independently – skills that are sought after by employers, professional schools and postgraduate programs. Whether you choose our Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science or one of our direct entry programs (Computing, Music, Fine Art (Visual Art), Kinesiology or Physical and Health Education), you can be certain that your Queen’s degree will open doors for you, either in the job mar- ket or in the pursuit of further study.
  47. 47. 39 IN QUEEN’S ARTS AND SCIENCE, EXPECT TO: • Discover during your first year – Arts and Science students explore different subjects for their first year, expand their horizons and know more about the choices available when they choose a major. • Benefit from our innovative approach to teaching. Go beyond the lecture format. Take an active part in your learning in courses that combine online and classroom learning with small-group activities. See pages 58 and 59 for more information about Blended Learning. • Learn from senior professors who are excited by teaching and the opportunity to connect with new students. • Globalize your education by going on an interna- tional exchange in your third year. Queen’s has exchange opportunities across the globe. See page 31 for more information.

For information about direct entry programs in Fine Art and Music, see page 54-55. SUBJECTS OF STUDY HUMANITIES Students who choose subjects in the Humanities can expect to see the world differently by interpret- ing human history, culture and artistic expression. How should we understand the past? What is the place of religion in human society? How does litera- ture contribute to human culture? How can we build a fair society in which everyone can thrive? Studying Art History, Classical Studies, English Language and Literature, History, Indigenous Studies, Jewish Studies, Medieval Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies and Spanish and Latin American Studies will help you use your imagination and creativity to reflect upon different scholars’and writ- ers’answers to the“big”questions. You will learn to think clearly and critically, extending your insights into philosophies of the individual and the workings of human societies from antiquity to the present. STUDY
  48. 48. The study of languages unlocks new worlds of litera- ture and culture. Knowledge of a language other than English enables you to travel, live and work in another country. Explore the foundations of language in the Linguistics or French Linguistics program or pursue literary and cultural studies in French, Ger- man, Greek, Italian, Latin or Spanish. Language instruction courses are also offered in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Inuktitut, Japanese and Mohawk. Students interested in historical languages can study Hebrew, and Latin. In our globalized world, every student can benefit from exposure to cultural diversity through language courses, and Queen’s offers a minor plan in World Language Studies, in which students study two or more languages as a complement to their primary degree program. SOCIAL SCIENCES If you are intrigued by the behaviour and interactions of human beings, both as individuals and in groups, consider the Social Sciences. Topics range from psychological drives and motivations to economic growth and development; from political practices and institutions to patterns of family interaction; from the effect of human interventions on the envi- ronment to the roles of women in different societies. Social Science plans are offered in Applied Econom- ics, Cognitive Studies, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, Global Development Studies, Health Studies, Political Studies, Psychology, Sociology, and Gender Studies. You will be encour- aged to approach human beings and human life with curiosity and an open mind, to investigate issues with careful research, and to draw conclusions based on empirical evidence. CREATIVE ARTS Artist, filmmaker, musician or actor? Just want to understand and enjoy the Creative Arts? At Queen’s, Stage and Screen, Computing and the Creative Arts, Fine Art (Visual Art), Music, Drama and Film and Media provide you with many opportunities to understand and interpret different forms of artistic expression, as well as to refine your techniques and skills in order to produce and show your own artistic works. Get involved with the Arts at Queen’s: join an extracurricular music ensemble, audition for a play or musical, volunteer at the student-run Union Gallery, or simply browse through the magnificent art collec- tions at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. 40 SCIENCE DEGREE OFFERED: BSc(Honours) OUAC Code: QS Also available with Concurrent Education (see page 70), OUAC Code: QF For information about direct entry programs in Computing, Kinesiology and Physical and Health Education, see pages 54-55.
