WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
In a competitive world, the ability to think critically, innovate and solve problems is key to success. At uLethbridge, our philosophy is to provide you with an in-depth education in your chosen field while helping you develop both a broader awareness of the world and the skills to apply that knowledge. This is liberal education.
Liberal education teaches you HOW to think, not WHAT to think. You gain skills such as big-picture thinking, adaptability, problem-solving, effective communication and information literacy, so you will be able to navigate a rapidly changing labour market. It also encourages you to be an active citizen in your community and sets you on the path to be a lifelong learner.
For Jace Briand this approach has opened windows into areas of knowledge he never dreamed possible before.
“A good education is a broad education and this university will provide you with opportunities to take yours much further and apply it to your world.”
With the close support of his professors, Jace is customizing his university education by taking a multi-disciplinary approach to help him build bridges between different disciplines.
“What I’ve found is everything fits together if you just step back and think about it, even areas that seem like they are on opposite ends of the knowledge spectrum. I want to help different groups like the sciences and humanities reach a shared understanding and work together.”
