A course is an intensive program of study that generally focuses on a specific topic or field. Students interested in a given professional discipline can enroll in a course to build a foundation for a future career in that area. 

What is a course in humanities? This area of study is quite broad, encompassing the analysis of literature, language and language arts. Students often read and discuss prose and poetry alike, learning and employing analytical theory. These courses tend to be very reading and writing intensive, and may be difficult for non-native language speakers hoping to study abroad. Be sure to check for any language prerequisites before enrolling in a course.

A notable advantage to enrolling in a course in humanities is the wide range of disciplines this area of study can expose you to. Even for those students who do not wish to pursue careers directly related to humanities, these courses can provide a helpful survey of language and literature that increases one's cultural literacy.

Every program is different, and will involve slightly different costs. To learn more about a specific course's tuition, enrollment and registration costs, bring your questions to the school's admissions office. 

A course in humanities can serve as the first step toward many different careers. Given the open-ended curriculum and intricacy of the object of study, students who graduate from these courses can put their broad knowledge and diverse set of skills to use in professions that range from writing composition and criticism, to law and politics. Whatever a student's professional interests, chances are that a course in humanities can help to broaden their horizons and hone their career goals.
