Humanities and Social Sciences

Throughout history, nothing has challenged the status quo like the humanities and social sciences. The subjects that comprise them, such as psychology, philosophy and anthropology, encourage us to be skeptics and to ask questions about the world around us. In fact, learning the humanities and social sciences is as much about the questions we ask as the answers we receive.

Whether you want to gain a better understanding of the mind or get a tighter grasp on what Plato meant by the state being “the greatest happiness of the whole,” the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Douglas College is an excellent place to hone your critical-thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills.

This faculty offers a number of credentials, including a four-year Bachelor of Arts in Applied Psychology degree, a four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in Applied Criminology and Associate of Arts degrees.

We also offer “themed” Associate of Arts degrees in the following subject areas:

  • Environmental Studies
  • Intercultural and International Studies
  • Gender, Sexualities and Women's Studies        
  • Forensic Studies
  • Future Professional Pilots
  • Future Teachers
