The UTP Stage II - Arts and Social Sciences provides from Fraser International College the foundation for further study in many areas such as economics, English, international studies, political science, psychology, linguistics and criminology. UTP Stage II will help you choose the area in which you wish to specialize for your Bachelor of Arts.

Potential career paths

There are an endless number of career opportunities available to Arts and Social Sciences graduates. More than half of all advertised positions that require a university degree do not specify a required degree discipline. 

The reason is that a university education, and especially a university education in Arts and Social Sciences, is as much about skill development as it is about content, and the skills you develop in Arts and Social Sciences are highly valued by employers.
