Come Visit the Program

learn - emily

If you have applied to the Bachelor of Humanities, or are thinking of applying, or simply wish to know more, you are welcome to take the opportunity to visit the College and see our facilities, and meet faculty and students.

Fall Open House

As part of Carleton University’s Fall Open House on October 28th, there will be two presentations on the Bachelor of Humanities program. They will be held in room 303 of Paterson Hall at 11:00am and 12:30pm.

This is a chance to learn all about the program from faculty and current students. Come hear about the Great Books studied as part of the program’s core curriculum, the program’s various degree options, the learning environment within the College of the Humanities, the various careers our alumni are now enjoying, and much more.

Specialty Tours

Carleton holds regular Specialty Tours for the Bachelor of Humanities, where you can meet faculty and students, and learn more about the program.  The next one will be held on  November 25th.

Private Visits

If you would like to meet with faculty and students in a smaller setting than a Specialty Tour, you are encouraged to arrange a private visit to the program. Faculty are very happy to have you attend a lecture or discussion group, and see in person how the program works.

Please choose a day that is convenient for you, and email the Undergraduate Administrator to let us know when you plan to visit. She can arrange for you to meet with professors and students, in addition to attending a lecture and/or a group.

The current academic year runs from 6 September to 8 December 2017, and from 8 January to 11 April 2018. This year’s Lecture and Discussion Group schedule for HUMS 1000 and HUMS 2000, the first and second-year core courses, are as follows:

Current Carleton Students

If you are a current Carleton student, simply contact us to arrange to meet a Humanities professor and sit in on a class or discussion group.

High School Teachers — Bring your Class to a Humanities Lecture

If you teach Grade 11 or 12, you are encouraged to arrange a class visit. Depending on the size of your group, your students can attend a regularly scheduled lecture, or faculty in the Bachelor of Humanities can hold a special lecture for you on a topic in English, Religion, Philosophy, History, or Political Theory.

Please email the Undergraduate Administrator to arrange a class visit.
