University Arts

Red Deer Polytechnic

Red Deer Polytechnic

The two-year University Arts Diploma offers students the opportunity to learn about the issues and people shaping their world through a holistic approach to knowledge that is interdisciplinary in emphasis and chronologically broad in its topics. Students can determine their futures through a focus on general University Arts, which allows them to concentrate on a particular area of interest within the Humanities (English, History/Classics, Philosophy) and Social Sciences (Anthropology, Communications, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology) or through one of three thematic specializations-Global Perspectives; Science and Society; Culture, Societies, and Gender-that centre on timely themes and subjects. With a choice of pathways, resulting in a University Arts Diploma, students can concentrate on what matters to them while gaining transferable knowledge and skills that will give them a leg up in an ever-uncertain future. In an age where intricate problems do not respond to traditional solutions, the ability to think beyond disciplinary boundaries, offer critical analysis, craft well-considered assessments, supported by adaptive thinking in pursuit of solutions, will be the foundation for students' further educational goals or employment aspirations.
