The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers 38 areas of study at the undergraduate and graduate level. Home to outstanding interdisciplinary faculty, research, and innovative teaching, our Faculty provides students with a collaborative and experiential learning environment that promotes creative ingenuity and the critical thinking and communication skills required for the modern workforce.
The FASS Framework represents the foundational cross-disciplinary areas of interest explored at FASS that get to the heart of what our community of students, researchers, educators, and administrators care about most: Identities, Communities and Social Justice, Mental Health and the Mind, Sustainable Futures, and the Power of Creative Expression.
Dr. Elyn Humphreys is a Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies and an expert in soil, plant and atmosphere interactions. Her research at Mer Bleue Bog — a conservation area in Ottawa’s east end greenbelt — studies the peatland’s carbon cycle to protect the important ecological role that this beautiful region will play for decades to come.
