Prepare For Further Education with General Arts and Science – Arts Program

If you’re looking to gain experience in the area of English for the purpose of entering university, Centennial College’s two-year General Arts and Science – Arts program is a smart choice. The undertaking is especially ideal for those who have a particular interest in fields such as Communication Arts, Child Studies, Community Services or Hospitality and Tourism Administration. Other people who would benefit from the two-year General Arts program include those who want to apply to university but may not have the academic credentials needed to enter the program of their choice, those who want to upgrade their skills, those who are curious about exploring career goals and various opportunities, as well as those who are unsure that university is the right choice for them.

So how does the program work? First and foremost, Centennial College harbours an inclusive environment, where students have access to their professors and can easily socialize and network in their small classes. This approach helps students to adapt to the college environment and prepares them for university. During your time in the program, you will study a variety of subjects in the humanities and social sciences as well as communications and learning skills. Some specific courses include: Canadian Multicultural Literature, Arguments Across the Disciplines, Applied Research Methods, Genocide Literature, Ethical Reasoning, Popular Culture and more. There are two very special courses within the two-year Arts program. Called Ryerson University Courses, they serve two different purposes. The first, CPHL-101 introduces students to some of the main themes in western philosophy through an examination of Plato’s “Republic”. The 2nd, CPOL-218, reflects on the various political perspectives that enable students to critically assess films and television programs. It will unravel the relationship between politics and film, and assess the role that films play in reinforcing of debunking stereotypes. The one thing these two courses do have in common is that they allow students to actually experience a university level course.

After two years in the General Arts and Science – Arts program, with at least a 3.0 GPA, you can proceed into year two of an undergraduate arts program at university. Qualified graduates may be eligible to participate in an articulated program with selected universities, institutes and professional associations. These partnerships allow graduates to apply academic credit towards further study. Centennial’s College’s partners are: Athabasca University, Griffith University, Ryerson University and York University.

Centennial College expects students applying to the two-year Arts program to present at minimum an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. Before entering this program, you must successfully complete program code 6700 or equivalent.
