Program Information

School: Medicine Hat College
Degree: Bachelor; University Transfer
Field of Study: Liberal Arts and Sciences/Liberal Studies
Description: Developing a strong understanding of culture, society, and the past – topics you will explore in humanities and social sciences (Arts) – offers tremendous value. As an individual, you will be challenged to think clearly and move beyond the preconceptions of how and why people communicate and interact. You will learn to integrate information, ideas, and opinions from a variety of sources and perspectives – a valuable asset in careers ranging from law to business.

University Transfer (UT) Arts is a major component of the college’s university transfer program. An education in Humanities and Social Sciences (Arts) is often misunderstood and underrated. Some may take a look at the classes and claim that subjects like philosophy and history have little relevance in daily life. But when you consider the challenges we face as a society—war based on religious idealism, globalization, medical problems like HIV, and more—you will soon realize how relevant these topics are. If we fail to understand other cultures for example, how can we do business successfully overseas? How can our society address any complex problem without looking inward?
