Welcome to the Arts and Science Honours Academy (ASHA), a highly competitive six-course interdisciplinary program that admits twenty-five high achieving students on an annual basis. The ASHA program requires that students complete a second language component and a travel abroad component during the four years of their degree.

The Arts and Science Honours Academy is a unique undergraduate experience for intellectually curious students who achieve excellent grades, are active in school or their community and are looking for dynamic learning opportunities
