Humanities One-Year Certificate

The Humanities are one of the earliest formalized fields of study. Since humans have been able to record and communicate knowledge, we have studied philosophy, reasoning, religion, art, and the nature of the human mind. Today, Humanities may not have the glamour of computer science or the draw of healthcare,  but they are still a critical part of college learning.

In fact, Humanities studies develop your critical thinking, reading, research and written communication skills. They provide you with a broad knowledge of some of the most important and enduring aspects of human culture, and they have been said to teach you how to learn. A knowledge of humanities is useful for the further academic study of human behavior, history, literature, art, music, and all aspects of human culture.

The Humanities program offers a one-year certificate, but many classes in this program can also apply to other programs in the Liberal & Creative Arts pathway. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Transfer to another college or university

LCCC is a great place to start. You can complete the first years of your education at LCCC at our lower tuition rate and then transfer your credits to another college or university to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
