History

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) was established on 1 July 1989 after it separated from the Faculty of Science. FASS includes one of the oldest English departments in Canada, dating from 1865 with James de Mille's appointment as the inaugural Professor of Rhetoric. The first two Bachelor of Arts degrees were awarded to Joseph Henry Chase and Robert Shaw in 1866.

In 1986 a committee was appointed to consider the restructuring of the Faculty of Arts and Science. The Smith Report, which proposed the creation of two distinct faculties, was drafted in 1987, and a referendum that same year showed a marginal favour for the division. The proposed implementation of a 20-credit Major BA and BSc for 1987/88 included Biology, Classics, Comparative Religion, Economics, French, "Mathematics, Statistics, and Computing Science," Geology, German, Philosophy, and Physics.
