Programs

The Faculty of Arts and Science at the University of Lethbridge embraces the philosophy of Liberal Education as mandated by the
University of Lethbridge. The Liberal Education program supports this philosophy by offering the following Liberal Education Courses:

  • Liberal Education 1000/2000 Introduction to Liberal Education This course is an introduction to university learning and the wide scope of human knowledge. Professors from many different disciplines will cover key ideas from the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts. Tutorials and labs teach essential university survival skills such as writing, numeracy, computer literacy, critical thinking, and integrative thinking.Students who complete both Liberal Education 1000 and Liberal Education 2000 may reduce their General Liberal Education Requirement by one course from each of the three lists.
  • Liberal Education 1000 and Liberal Education 2000 are counted as one 1000- level course only toward your 1000-level course limits.
  • Liberal Education 3001/3002 Capstone Ideas in the Arts and Sciences A full-year readings and discussion based-seminar that broadly integrates the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, and natural sciences. Content varies from year to year. Students who complete both Liberal Education 3001 and Liberal Education 3002 may reduce their General Liberal Education Requirement by one course from each of the three lists.

All Liberal Education courses focus explicitly on the University's goals of Liberal Education. The Liberal Education program and its courses complement the General Liberal Education Requirement for all University of Lethbridge degree programs.
