Humanities 101 offers free humanities courses to low-income adults who have experienced barriers to learning. The program is hosted on St. Mary’s University campus during the fall and winter terms.
Humanities 101 is a strength-based educational program designed to help low-income Calgarians address barriers getting in the way of their capacities and skills. It is a program where curiosity and learning are put into action.
Our students are people who face challenges such as poverty, immigration, experiences with violence, prior negative education experience, addiction recovery, homelessness, and other interruptions to learning. Participants in Humanities 101 learn how to increase their capacity to engage in a life reflective of their unique gifts and abilities, while deepening their skills of learning, communicating and analysis.
Due to the health risks and uncertainty around COVID-19, we will not offer a Humanities 101 course during the Winter of 2021. Applications are now open for our Spring and Summer 2021 term. Classes will be held in-person at the St. Mary’s University campus on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 12:00 to 3:30 with safety measures in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19. The Spring/Summer semester will run from the beginning of May 2021 to the end of July 2021. In the event that it is not deemed safe to host our class in-person because of ongoing COVID-19 risks, we will offer the semester online. If you have any questions please contact Marina Kerr at Hum101@stmu.ca or Pablo Ortiz at Pablo.Ortiz@stmu.ca.
