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 fall of 2020. If you are interested in applying to participate in the next session of our courses please contact Marina at Hum101@stmu.ca or 403-254-3713.
