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 find out more information and apply to the Spring Writing 101 / 201 courses (January 8 – Aril 2, 2020), come to one of the upcoming information/application sessions. Please note that applications are not accepted online.
