Liberal studies education is an exciting and integral part of every student’s experience at Humber College. In your elective classes, you’ll find yourself sitting next to people studying engineering, medicine, media, business, community service, the arts, and many other disciplines that may be far removed from your own field of study. The subjects that make up the Department of Liberal Studies – arts, anthropology, cultural studies, economics, history, literature, natural science, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology – will leave you better prepared for the challenges and opportunities of any career you may pursue, and for life in general.
General Education electives guide you to think critically about yourself, our society, and our world. The thoughtful analysis of different positions and the ability to respond in a respectful manner are skills that will help you in your job, and in LIFE.
Breadth electives are designed to broaden and deepen the expertise of degree graduates by exposing them to knowledge, ways of thinking, and methodologies outside their areas of specialization.
