  • Why did we combine the Arts and the Sciences in one degree?
  • When you think of Da Vinci (hopefully they say something about his art) what do you think of?
  • Art
  • But he was a tireless inventor that drew diagrams of prototypes that defined modern technologies (this is a beginning sketch for a helicopter)
  • When you think of Einstein, what established his popularity?
  • Science/physics
  • But it is said that he used the arts to come up with new concepts about science.
  • We could call this: Combinatory play.Combinatory play, accordingly, is simply the act of combining, or relating, unrelated items to solve problems, create new ideas, and even rework old ideas.Jacques Hadamard (1945). In this letter Einstein writes, “…combinatory play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought.” Though Einstein did not define this term emphatically, an unfastened definition has been derived from his work.

  • I would suggest that if Einstein and Da Vinci were with us today. . .they might like to be an. . .
  • Arts and Science Student.
  • Who is the typical arts and Science student?Have an average entering grade of 85%Are strong in many different coursesSometimes have trouble choosing a focus on a specific majorHave a love and an affinity for learningHave professional goals such as: Medicine, Physiotherapy, Education, Law and Graduate StudiesTend to be mostly female.Do very well with Academic ScholarshipsAre recognized Academic achievers on campus.
  • Gillian Porteous and Parents celebrate her above 90% standing at the Dean’s Honour Roll
  • What are the classes like at the University of Windsor?Largest class size is 450 on the Uwindsor campus.Other classes are as small as 10Courses are offered 1, 2 or 3 times/ per week – total class time is approximately 15 hours (3 hours per class).Classes are lead by Professors – It would be great if we had a professor to profile that has done work with an outstanding scholar.In arts and Science there are Fall 2010 statsYear 1: 23Year 2: 9Year 3: 8Year 4: 11
  • Grade Point Average89% Median Average80% Minimum RequirementUnlimited seatingCourse RequirementsENG4U, MHF4UTwo of SB14U, SCH4U, or SPH4UMCV4U is strongly recommended
  • Major Concentration (12)(a) Maximum of two 100-level courses in the major subject(b) At least four 300-level or 400-level courses in the major subjectOther Honours degrees will require 20 – 32 courses so the focus is higher.
  • Minor Concentration (6)(a) Maximum of two 100-level courses in the minor subject(b) At least one 300-level or 400-level course in the minor subjectMany Minors will require 6 courses (this is something you can arrange when you arrive at the University).
  • Options for Major and Minors in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (our largest faculty on campus)
  • Options from the Faculty of Science (2nd largest faculty on campus)Almost all of our Science programs are offered up to the PHD level (except Economics – master’s) and this means that our campus has many research opportunities.
  • Options requirements:(a) Four courses from FASS or Science, as needed to satisfy (a) below Other requirements:(a) At least 15 courses must be taken in each of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Science.(b) To continue in the program, and to receive the Honours BAS degree, students must maintain an Honours (B-) cumulative and major average.
  • Amer PasalicAmer Pasalic had the opportunity to work with a Canada Research Chair Pasalic, was able to conduct research at the undergraduate level under the tutelage of Aaron Fisk, a professor at UWindsor’s Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research and one of 14 CRC holders here.Pasalic entered Law school 2 years ago.The 20-year-old was born in the former Yugoslavia but his family moved to Germany to escape the war there when he was four. After nine years in Germany, the family moved to Canada and he was moved ahead by one grade. His mother, who now works as an immigration consultant, has a degree in law and practiced as both a lawyer and a judge in Yugoslavia, while his father, who has a degree in economics, is currently working as an addictions counsellor for the Salvation Army. They both placed a great deal of emphasis on education when he was young.“They always made sure I was doing my homework, and they just instilled in me the importance of having an education. By the time I got to high school, I just continued on like that, and that’s how I’ve been ever since.”He earned excellent grades while at Vincent Massey Secondary School, where he won a Governor General’s award for having the highest average in his class, and since entering UWindsor, he has won a renewable dean’s entrance scholarship, as well as an Outstanding Scholar’s award, which he has maintained every year since enrolling.Learning about stable isotopes and how naturally occurring chemical tracers can be used to determine the health of an eco-system has provided him with the scientific background to practice the kind of law to which he’s attracted. He’ll be applying to Windsor Law, as well as the University of Toronto, Osgoode Hall at York and the University of Ottawa.
  • Year 3 – Uwindsor Credit, Uwindsor Tuition and go far far away from Mom and Dad!It would be great to add an Arts & Student that took an exchange as an example.
  • There are a lot of things to navigate at University as an Arts & Science students.
  • Dr. Lydia Miljan, Dr. Mike Salter and Maxine Ebegbuzie are all people that can assist you.Options requirements:(a) Four courses from FASS or Science, as needed to satisfy (a) below Other requirements:(a) At least 15 courses must be taken in each of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Science.(b) To continue in the program, and to receive the Honours BAS degree, students must maintain an Honours (B-) cumulative and major average.
  • This is a sample schedule of an Arts and Science student. You can see the class sizes in brackets the building locations and that a few classes have labs where students get a lot of personal attention.
  • Our campus is among the most comprehensive (among institutions of the same size) in Canada for selecting majors/minors
  • This slide could be updated with new activities.These are activities that the Inter-Faculty society has done in the past.
