As a highly creative person, Christy 
Brain loves being able to chart her own 
course. Realizing she wanted something 
more meaningful than a retail “McJob,” 
Christy began taking general studies 
courses at Capilano University. When 
she heard that the Bachelor of Arts in 
Liberal Studies program allows students 
to build their own degrees, she was sold. 
“You get to come out with something 
completely unique to you,” she says. 
“The creativity that you’re allowed to 
express in how you shape your degree is 
amazing.” Christy followed her passion 
for art history to create a final project 
exploring the intersection of technology 
with museum culture. Today, she is 
working on an exhibit exploring Victorian 
“Dandy” culture for the Roedde House 
Museum in Vancouver’s West End, 
timed to correspond with Pride Week.
