Streeters: What would you rename the Faculty of Arts?

Starting on January 1, 2018, the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation will be renamed the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation. The faculty said the name change reflects the reality of the programs they offer and their students, as most of them aren’t studying to be physical education teachers.

As for the Faculty of Arts, students study in many different departments including those of history, English, women’s and gender studies, music, psychology, and art and design. We asked students what they would change the name of the Faculty of Arts to, if given the chance.
