Within our Arts programs, we encourage the exchange of knowledge, ideas and differing points of views. Global citizenship and innovation are fostered in an environment committed to diversity, inclusion and a healthy, respectful culture. We welcome new insights and focus on making connections with faculty, peers and the greater community. Your natural curiosity will be encouraged as you explore a range of disciplines within our diverse and relevant programming.

You’ll learn in an academically challenging, yet supportive environment with faculty who are experts in their fields. Our faculty have built a stimulating learning and research environment where curiosity, critical thinking and creativity are encouraged. As one example of where our students present their research and collaborate with their peers, we host the Agora Undergraduate Student Conference annually. 

With an Arts education, you’ll gain a breadth and depth of knowledge, preparing you for a future filled with possibilities in an evolving job environment. Whether you have a passion for humanities, liberal arts or social sciences, we’re got you covered.

As a student of the Arts, you’ll learn fundamental skills in critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, leadership and research. Graduates have gone on to have fulfilling careers in areas such as counselling, research and analytics (public and private industries), community development, environmental conservation, social justice, government, media, communications and graduate/doctoral studies.

At Red Deer Polytechnic, you’ll be encouraged to dream big. We’ll give you the tools, knowledge and inspiration you need to make the most of your talents in the world. An education in the Arts will open your eyes to a broader perspective. From here you can go anywhere.
