Humanities and Social Sciences Diploma Humanities and Social Sciences

Medicine Hat College

Medicine Hat College
This diploma is designed to provide the student with the basic knowledge and skills that every citizen requires to begin a process of discovery and individual development that will enable the student to understand what it means to be human in a world that is constantly changing. The humanities are the very expression of who and what we are. The social sciences investigate how what we think and what we do creates the social and political environment in which we live. This two-year program allows the student to pursue an investigation of individual interests and personal goals unique to them while at the same time preparing them for further study in the humanities, social sciences, or the professions. The program can supplement and compliment any number of other programs and will begin a process of development of the student's understanding of the world and themselves.
