How to Apply

Hum101, Hum201, Writing101 and Writing201 are courses for people who have encountered financial and other barriers to university education and who wish to expand their intellectual horizons in an accessible, challenging and respectful environment. Applicants must have a love of learning, basic literacy skills, be willing to attend classes, complete assignments and participate in group discussions. Applications for these non-credit courses are accepted not on the basis of past academic history, but on applicants’ desire and ability to be part of the Hum Programme.

Twice a year information/application sessions are held in community centres in the DTES/South areas. For the four courses that start in September, applications are taken in August every year. In November, applications are taken for the Writing courses that start in the following January.
