Arts & Sciences Degree

As the world further transitions from the industrial era into the information age, our education needs to keep pace. Technical, job-oriented training is no longer sufficient to handle the complex and shifting challenges of the 21st century. Enter the liberal arts and sciences.

Consisting of arts, humanities, and mathematics, as well as social, life, and natural sciences, the liberal arts and sciences form the basis of a well-rounded education. They allow one to develop critical thinking, intellectual breadth, and an informed, worldly perspective—they allow one to really think.

In seminar classes (with 20 students or fewer), students examine one area of human inquiry after another on a Block Plan—taking one course at a time for three-and-a-half weeks. Students learn to focus on one discipline in a short period of time, which is an important skill in today’s world.

Our Foundation and Concentration programs are a fresh approach to the classic liberal arts and sciences. By crossing traditional boundaries and developing valued habits of mind, a Quest education develops students into effective problem solvers and lifelong learners. As such, every Quest student graduates with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree (BA&Sc).


All Quest faculty, known as Tutors, offer excellent interdisciplinary, seminar-style courses.


Our students come from 43 different countries with almost 50% from outside of Canada.


Quest’s alumni are thriving in graduate and professional programs as well as pursuing jobs in a multitude of professions.
