Short Courses

Humanities (1)



  • In the early years of Toronto, the Humber River provided the local industry with the energy source and communications link it needed to flourish. In 1967, Humber College took on that heritage, dedicating itself to the communication of ideas and energy that would foster lifelong learning.


  • Humber College offers a broad range of credentials including bachelor's degrees, diplomas, certificates and Ontario graduate certificates — and will help you chart the best path towards your goals. 
  • Humber professors bring a wealth of relevant industry experience to the classroom. Class sizes are small, and simulation labs and work placements bridge the gap between classroom and industry.

  • Humber's network of Centres of Innovation (COIs) bring together interdisciplinary teams of faculty, students, and community and industry partners to solve complex, real-world problems. COIs provide an experiential learning environment for Humber students.
