From its beginning, Humber has been a pioneer in providing quality general education courses to its students. General education guidelines issued by Ontario's College Standards and Accreditation Council (CSAC) confirm the important role general education plays in all postsecondary programs.

General education is the broad study of subjects and issues that are central to life in the contemporary world. As such, general education courses are non-program specific and designed to deepen students' understanding of their roles as potential workers, family members, consumers, community members, citizens, and life-long learners.

General Education courses are available both in-class and online.
