Interdisciplinary Arts

Create your own program from the broadest range of academic disciplines possible.

An Interdisciplinary Arts Major at Providence consists of selecting one concentration from the Humanities (English literature, history, or philosophy) and a second concentration from one of the Social Sciences (anthropology, psychology, or sociology). Together, the humanities and social sciences form the foundation of classic higher education, because though they employ different methods of analysis, they share in common the study of people. Even the option of replacing one of the concentrations with mathematics is studying one way that people solve problems. Whatever your choice, you will acquire an advanced ability to think analytically, critically, and creatively.

*This program fulfills the requirements for entrance into the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg and Brandon University. Contact info@prov.ca for more information.
