Welcome to the School of Language and Liberal Studies (LLS).  Our core focus is academic, professional, and business communication as well as humanities, social science, and research and evaluation studies.

Our college-based curriculum

Many of the essential mandatory and ministry-directed elective courses required for most diploma and degree courses at the college are coordinated through our school and delivered by our faculty.

WRIT: Reason and writing curriculum

WRIT is designed to help students succeed in becoming functional, competent communicators at work, at school, and in life. Our faculty introduce students to essential principles of reading, writing, and reasoning at the post secondary level.

COMM: Communications curriculum

At Fanshawe, the importance of professional and work-related communication is reinforced by the inclusion of at least one COMM course in most programs in addition to WRIT. For questions about a specific COMM course, please contact our school directly via the Contacts page.

GenEd: General education electives

Our elective courses provide students with learning opportunities that broaden their knowledge about the world beyond their vocational programs through a roster of unique and multidisciplinary courses.
