Trent University Durham is proud to be offering Humanities 101, our community-based initiative, for the fourth year, this Fall.
Humanities 101 at Trent University Durham is a free, 10-week, not-for-credit multi-disciplinary course offering classes in humanities and social sciences. Students will attend classes each week for two hours (one hour of lecture and one hour of seminar-style discussion). Each week will bring a new topic and new instructor.
The intent of the program is to provide access to higher education to those in the Durham Region who might face barriers – either financial or otherwise and also to provide our community with opportunities for lifelong learning. There is a concerted effort to keep the topics lively and engaging but also accessible to those who may not have completed secondary or post-secondary education. Students are not required to do readings or complete assignments and involvement in class discussions is entirely voluntary.
The courses are taught by Professors who volunteer their time and the administration is coordinated by a committee of dedicated Trent employees.
Humanities 101 is free to all those enrolled and additional information on the program can be found at: http://www.trentu.ca/durham/academics/humanities-101
