Change the world through the Faculty of Arts

Your vision of a more inclusive, compassionate and equitable world is possible. In the face of humanity’s most critical and complex issues, UBC Arts students, researchers, faculty and alumni are asking the hard questions. They’re diving deep for insight, thinking critically, fuelling curiosity and sharing ideas that advance just and thriving societies.

Graduates of the Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies (CENES) are ambitious entrepreneurs, community leaders, lawyers, consultants, translators, legislators, authors, health professionals and researchers. With the support of alumni, friends and partners, we ensure CENES students are prepared to become a generation of new leaders who speak multiple languages, know and respect multiple cultures, and work for peace and understanding around the world.

What happens here can change everything. Your support is the catalyst. Join CENES in shaping a better future.
