High School Accelerated courses

Courses below have been developed specifically for High School Accelerated students:

ENGL 100 - Critical Reading and Writing I develops students' proficiency in critical reading and writing through the study of a wide range of non-literary and literary texts, and the study of composition, with emphasis on connections between modes of reading and writing.

ANTH 100 - Introduction to Anthropology introduces students to anthropological concept of culture, its uses in the explanation of human behaviour, and its impact on our understanding of human nature, language and society. The course will explore cultural diversity through the comparative perspective that makes anthropology unique within the humanities and social sciences.

ART 220 - Two-Dimensional Form* includes hands-on studio projects. Students will draw, paint, use print media, photography and intermedia processes to develop a working understanding of two-demensional design principles.
