What is ACS?

Creating change, one person at a time.

The Arts & Contemporary Studies Course Union was created to help build a foundation in which students can learn, create, grow a network and connect with others.


Our professors and students all take a unique approach to learning and teaching. Arts & Contemporary Studies is a hidden gem at Ryerson University and is a unique and customizable program that allows for students to explore their interests in Anthropology, Diversity and Equity, Philosophy, English and more! Through this unique, valuable program and our truly passionate staff and students, we help each other develop academically and personally to the highest degree.


We invite you to explore our site and discover the academics and community Arts & Contemporary Studies Course Union provides to each and every student. Get in touch with us today to learn more about enrolment, or ask any other questions.
