GPRC's Arts program is a centre for critical thought where students are engaged in ongoing critical reflection of the past, present, and future. Liberal Arts endeavours to encompass academic discovery, integration, application, and teaching.It is about articulating the significance of cultural and historical events with rich interpretations of complex questions.
Students in the Bachelor of Arts program become creative thinkers, comfortable dealing with decisions in the bigger context, and able to communicate - reason, create, write and speak effectively.
Bachelor of Arts students at Grande Prairie Regional College can complete two or more years of an Arts program. Choose from a wide selection of majors, and study with highly qualified faculty. The small class environment is an excellent foundation for a choice of degree options, including on-campus collaborations or transference to a four-year institution, such as the University of Alberta. Admission requirements for university students at GPRC are based on the University of Alberta requirements to ensure transferability.
Students can begin their post-secondary education in the Arts if interested in becoming a lawyer, an archaeologist, a journalist, a psychologist, an historian, a social worker, a teacher or a member of many other professional groups. If you are undecided about your career path, you may want to consider the Arts. Check out Arts Disciplines in the Programs area of the website for more info.
