Discover Your Abilities in the General Arts and Science – Arts Program

You know that you enjoy English and you’ve always been good at writing and reading, or perhaps communicating with people is one of your favourite things to do. However, you’re unsure of what career path is right for you. Or, maybe you have to upgrade your skills before you can apply for the Arts program of your choice. To help you do so, Centennial College has developed its General Arts and Science – Arts program.

For whom exactly is this program ideal? Students who are interested in a career in the fields of Communication Arts, Child Studies, Community Services or Hospitality and Tourism Administration will benefit greatly from the General Arts and Science – Arts program. That’s because it will help them to explore career goals and various opportunities. Therefore, it is also ideal for students who are undecided if university is the right choice for them or if the career path they’re considering will suit them. Also, students who are sure they want to apply to a university level Arts degree program will gain beneficial knowledge. Lastly, if none of the above applies to you, but you do not possess the academic admission credentials needed to enter a university program of your choice, then the General Arts and Science – Arts program may be for you.

To gain entry into this undertaking you must possess an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. You must also have the compulsory English 12C or U, or skills assessment or equivalent. However, possession of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to program.

Once you have been accepted, you will study for eight continuous months or two semesters with breaks. During your time in the General Arts and Science – Arts program, you will take courses such as College Communications, Math in the Digital Age, Concepts in Humanities, Canadian Studies, 20th Century History and many others. The range of courses in the program is designed to cover humanities and social sciences as well as communications and learning skills so that students graduate feeling confident in whatever education option they pursue. Those who opt to attend a Centennial College Arts program are looking at a further study period of one to four semesters, depending on future goals. Also, after one year of study, with at least a 3.0 GPA, you may proceed directly into year 1 of a university arts program. To further help students, Centennial College’s General Arts and Science – Arts program has articulated programs with selected universities, institutes and professional associations. These schools include: Athabasca University, Griffith University, Ryerson University and York University.
