Application Deadline: 31 August 2017
Location: Melfort, Nipawin, Tisdale

An education in Arts & Science equips students with numerous skills and qualifications they require to be successful in the workplace. They will develop competencies in leadership, critical thinking, communications, problem solving, team building and project management. These wide-ranging and transferable skills help our students adapt to changing workplace dynamics, and our many hands-on learning experiences give students the upper hand in today’s ever-competitive job market.

The College of Arts and Science provides approximately half of the undergraduate courses offered at the U of S, with 60 subject areas grouped into four program types: Humanities, Social Sciences, Science and Fine Arts. In addition to the many degrees obtained from the College, many students start in the in Arts and Science and fulfill the requirements for professional colleges such as education, law and many others.

Cumberland College is pleased to offer 10 face-to-face courses from the University of Saskatchewan.  All of the courses are offered in Melfort and many have a video connection to the Nipawin and Tisdale locations.  Additional courses are offered through televised and online delivery at all three campus locations.

In some cases, it is possible to complete your full degree off-campus (i.e. 3 year Sociology).  You must apply to, and be accepted by, the University of Saskatchewan or University of Regina to start your degree at Cumberland College.  Please ensure you see a College Advisor for academic advising to chose the correct courses to complete your degree.
