Program Summary

In the Bachelor of Humanities, students read the world’s most influential books and explore the world’s most exciting ideas in art, philosophy, history, literature, classics, music, religion and science.

A Bachelor of Journalism and Humanities degree and a Bachelor of Humanities and Biology degree are also offered.

This “Great Books” program focuses on big ideas, explored through small discussion groups and writing assignments. The typical Humanities student loves to read and is excited about sharing ideas with students and professors. Students are invited to participate in an extensive cultural program, including a student literary journal, music nights, visits to museums, and subsidized trips to Montreal and New York City.
