Our Program

If your goal is to earn a full diploma and to go on to degree-level studies, Humber’s General Arts and Science – University Transfer diploma program is the best choice for you. Once you have successfully completed our two-semester University Transfer certificate program or the College Transfer certificate program (with the bridging courses), you may continue to semesters three and four to take advanced-level courses and maximize your transferrable credits.

Based on your grades, there are over 20 different degree programs offered at Humber and University of Guelph-Humber where you can continue your studies with direct transfer credits. With the General Arts and Science diploma, you will be eligible for studies in the liberal arts, humanities or the social sciences at University of Toronto (both Mississauga and St. George campuses) and at York University with direct transfer credits equivalent to over a full year of university study (grade dependent). If you want to experience degree-level courses to prepare yourself for university, to gain admission to the best institutions and to get transfer credit too, then the General Arts and Science – University Transfer diploma program is for you.

Here is what you can expect in semesters three and four:

  • strengthening and enhancing of the academic skills you have built in first year
  • individual, highly personal educational advising
  • inspiring courses and small seminars taught by first-rate professors
  • motivated classmates who, like you, have taken control of their future and chosen an educational pathway that will lead them to future academic success.
Courses Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:

  • Develop, through general knowledge gained in a wide range of subjects, insight into both self and society.
  • Develop flexibility and clarity of thought and expression in order to develop communications competence to a level required by business and industry.
  • Understand and utilize critical thinking processes and problem solving techniques.
  • Examine and evaluate various aspects of our changing society to assist in developing a sense of personal and social responsibility as a citizen in society.
