A wide array of programs makes Arts an exciting area to study in. Develop essential workplace skills such as communication, critical analysis, problem solving, independent learning and collaboration.
Choose from many courses to fulfil your program requirements. You can also take post-secondary courses elsewhere and transfer them to your Open Learning program. Check the BC Transfer Guide to explore your options.
