An education in the humanities enriches our understanding of human discoveries, cultures and experiences. You’ll learn to think in different ways, explore new ideas and embrace change – in yourself and the world around you.
Why study humanities at CapU?
Thinking. Creating. Communicating. Exploring. Changing.
Through humanities, you’ll gain a greater understanding of yourself and others. By studying where the best thinkers have taken us, we can push ourselves further, perhaps changing direction or even changing the conversation.
CapU’s humanities programs and courses are designed to stimulate your curiosity and help you develop flexible thinking and critical literacy skills. You’ll be prepared, versatile and connected as you build your place in the world, both inside the university and beyond.
Challenge your mind
We offer a wide variety of courses in subject areas that range from languages (English, Chinese, French, Spanish and Japanese), linguistics and First Nations languages and cultures, to philosophy, history and art history. You’ll acquire a skilled approach to reading, writing and critical thinking, while evaluating the world and your place within it.
Your inquisitive mind will be challenged to develop your own ideas and consider life’s big questions. You’ll become your own thinker, setting the stage for a bright future.
Careers paths and further education
An education in the humanities provides excellent preparation for many careers as well as advanced academic study. Our courses can be applied to any associate degrees at CapU or used as a solid foundation for future study within the BC university system.
