Program Information

School:Briercrest College
Faculty:Briercrest College - Arts and Science
Field of Study:Humanities/Humanistic Studies
Description:The humanities are about people, culture, and ideas. The BA Humanities ensures that students are initiated into the rich cultural legacy we share as human beings. Since a BA Humanities is interdisciplinary and multicultural, students learn not only about their place in this heritage, but also how they can relate to others who may not share it. Offers a significant biblical and theological basis from which to engage this legacy as well as an opportunity to undertake significant study in English, History, and Philosophy. The professors have good reasons to believe that if students thrive in this program, they will indirectly develop competencies that enable them to live well and succeed in their professions, whatever those might be.

Education can be a source of permanent delight. Why settle for anything less? We believe that if students learn to love what is good and pursue it wholeheartedly, they will find themselves with characteristics, motivations, and ways of living that enable them to serve well in contemporary society. This program is offered with the written authorization of the Minister of Advanced Education effective July 1, 2013. This authorization was provided after the program underwent a quality assurance review and was found to meet the standards established by the Minister. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs.
