Humanities and Social Sciences

Sheridan College’s Diploma of Arts provides a first-year undergraduate program for students interested in preparing for employment in cross-cultural settings, in the social enterprise sector, or as a pathway towards future study in the humanities and social sciences.

Students can select from units covering literature, creative writing, economics, history, geography, sociology and three foreign languages (Arabic, Mandarin Chinese or Japanese). During the course, students will enjoy the opportunity to explore a range of secular and Christian perspectives on human existence, human dignity and personal morality, and examine how these perspectives influence our understanding of the body of knowledge across different disciplines.

Students will also complete a research project that will lead to recommendations for the further development of Sheridan College.
