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.
