logoUniversity of British Columbia – Okanagan Campus

The University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus opened to the public in Kelowna in 2005. More than 8,300 students from across Canada and 90 other countries are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs in eight faculties and schools.

Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies

The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies (FCCS) offers both graduate and undergraduate programs, and provides an exciting intellectual environment for examining various types of communications within society; the cultural forms, relationships and institutions that emerge, and the economic and political forces that underlie them. FCCS offers programs in the areas of language, literary studies, cultural studies, art history, creative writing, digital humanities and the visual and performing arts.

FCCS programs explore different dimensions of cultural expressions and relationships, and how they relate to interactions among humans and between humans and other phenomena, both physical and abstract. They cultivate the skills and knowledge base which help to interrogate our cultural and natural heritage; to determine which elements need to be preserved; to explore how best these can be sustained; and to better the human condition.
