About this course

If you wish to participate in university study without having to commit to completing a large set of courses, the Certificate in Arts could be right for you. It is also a good choice if you wish to take a few interest courses at university level.

The arts are the study of humanity: our history, beliefs, societies, languages, and cultures. They ask questions about how we think, how we communicate, how we live, and how we interact with our environment. They teach us to analyse the meaning behind what we are, what we do, and how we came to be that way.
