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, in August and November, information/application sessions are held in community centres in the DTES/South. To apply for a course you must attend one of the application sessions (applications are not accepted online). For courses that begin in September 2019, please attend one of the following sessions:
