The Humanities program is more than a place of study, it is a delightful community! As you begin your first year in the program, you will come to realize that our corner in Paterson Hall is more reminiscent of a family than a classroom.

History and Activities

The Humanities Social Society is our student-run organization, founded in 2016, through which we foster a sense of community and a welcoming environment, bringing Humanities students together through a range of events and activities.

The HSS has organized social and academic events from game nights to trips to the National Gallery of Canada and paper editing sessions. Our events allow students to become involved in activities that interest them while giving them the opportunity to get to know their peers. Our larger inter-year events will allow students from different years in the program to interact.
