Liberal Arts & Professional Studies
Humanities is the study of culture. It involves history, art, literature, music, architecture, politics, food - all aspects that help to define and express a specific group of people. The study of the Humanities serves to challenge our common understanding of issues and events, and helps students to develop valuable critical, analytical, and communications skills.
The Humanities program in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies will introduce you to the major questions of life as you study issues of social, moral and aesthetic value. Drawing from literature, history, philosophy, religion, fine arts and popular culture courses, the Humanities program enables you to gain a greater self-understanding and appreciation of the diversity of human cultures and experiences. The program pays special attention to what is unique, particular, and unpredictable in human experience.
You can combine studies in the Humanities with a related discipline such as History, Philosophy, or Women's Studies, exploring complimentary historical, cultural, and gender perspectives.
As a Humanities graduate, you will be well-prepared to face your future lives and careers through well-reasoned decisions and responsible actions. You will be valued by leaders of the high-tech industry and government for your:
- creativity and broad-based skills;
- ability to communicate, to sell, to relate, and work as part of a team;
- intellectual curiosity;
- critical values.
