You are a student in philosophy? History? Literature? Or more generally in Liberal Arts? But though you have developed competences that are valued in many academic and professional fields, you may lack a concrete sense of available opportunities that lie ahead of you.
If it’s the case, come to the 2018 Canadian Liberal Arts Fair this Saturday at the BAnQ! This Fair organized by the Canadian Liberal Arts Association aims to help them and others learn about interesting and realistic paths to be explored, a place for people to learn how they can spend a lifetime engaged in the liberal arts.
Concretely, what can you do there?
- Go to the Opportunities Space. Sponsors (like McGill!) will talk about all kinds of opportunities— volunteering, academic programs, internships, jobs, etc.—directly connected to studies in the liberal arts, humanities, etc.
- Attend the panel Interview on Liberal Arts in Professional Life. Three alumni of programs in the liberal arts will be interviewed to discuss how their academic training has nourished their professional success.
- Don’t miss the Reflection Workshop. Brila Youth Projects will be leading a workshop in which participants will reflect together on the theme Disconnected in a connected world: How can we think together authentically?, reflecting on some of the key competencies students can hope to develop through training in the liberal arts.
When: 17 November 2018 from 12PM to 4PM
Where: Bibliothèque et Archives nationale de Québec (“BAnQ”; 475 De Maisonneuve Est, Montréal, QC, H2L 5C4, metro Berri-UQAM).
