About

Humanities is the study of culture. It involves history, art, literature, music, architecture, politics, food - all aspects that help to define and express a specific group of people. The Humanities BA program at York University serves to challenge our common understanding of issues and events, and helps students to develop valuable critical, analytical and communications skills.

Overview

The Humanities BA program at York University in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies will introduce you to the major questions of life as you study issues of social, moral and aesthetic value. Drawing from literature, History, Philosophy, Religion, Fine Arts and popular culture courses, the Humanities program enables you to gain a greater self-understanding and appreciation of the diversity of human cultures and experiences. The program pays special attention to what is unique, particular and unpredictable in human experience.

You can combine studies in the Humanities with a related discipline such as History, Philosophy or Women's Studies, exploring complimentary historical, cultural and gender perspectives.

As a Humanities graduate, you will be valued by leaders of the high-tech industry for your:

  • creativity and broad-based skills;
  • ability to communicate, to sell, to relate and work as part of a team;
  • intellectual curiosity;
  • critical values.

You will be well-prepared to face your future lives and careers through well-reasoned decisions and responsible actions.

  • Learn with professors who have won prestigious York University and National teaching awards - Professor Jan Rehner, Professor Matthew Clark.
  • Enhance your learning through computer-based tutorial and discussion groups.
  • Isis, the History of Science Society's 95-year-old quarterly publication, was relocating to York and is edited by York humanities professor, Bernie Lightman. It features articles and book reviews covering all fields and time periods in the history of science. Another York professor, Katherine Anderson, is the new Isis book review editor.
