Proudly 40,000+ Alumni Strong

The Faculty of Arts and Social Science at Carleton University has nearly 40,000 amazing alumni who are making a difference all around the world. Not only do FASS grads play a central role in influencing our faculty’s overarching goals, strategic direction, and activities, but they also generously serve as inspirational figures and mentors for our current students.  If you have graduated from a FASS program, we’d love it if you’d stay connected to our community by subscribing to our newsletter and magazine, completing our Alumni Feedback Form, or by joining us at events.  Hope to hear from you soon!

Throughout the year in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences there are a variety of compelling events and lectures occurring on and off Carleton campus, and online. FASS events feature celebrated academics, public figures, and performers. Keep your eyes locked here for upcoming FASS events.  Hope to see you soon.

The Alumni Mentors program pairs upper-year FASS students and recent graduates with a FASS alumni mentor. FASS mentors are established professionals who help students and recent graduates develop skills for the workplace and expand their professional networks.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences fosters a collaborative learning environment which promotes creative ingenuity and the critical thinking and communication skills required for a professional career. With graduates entering the workforce every year, your organization can find the skills, talent, and knowledge you need to drive a business forward.

Carleton University is proud to have one of Canada’s best student aid programs, and alumni and friends of the university make this continued success possible. As a donor you may choose to establish a scholarship, which recognizes academic achievement, or establish a bursary, which supports those in financial need. You can also choose to designate an award toward a specific department or academic unit in the Faculty of Arts and Social Science.

FASSinate is published annually for the alumni, faculty, staff, students, friends, and partners of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.  The magazine is intended to communicate our faculty’s goals and activities as a means to connect alumni to each other and with the wider FASS and Carleton University community.  Read past issues and stay current with all things FASS, please subscribe to our bi-weekly newsletter.

My defining experience at Carleton was the realization that one could apply critical thinking based on knowledge gained in multiple areas (e.g., studying Faulkner concurrently with discovering music that draws inspiration from the same time/setting, and reading criticism related to those same sources).
