Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

About Humanities with Leadership Foundations at Laurier

In our Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Humanities with Leadership Foundations program, you'll immerse yourself in the problems that leaders and organizations face today. You'll learn how to create long-lasting solutions that consider larger historical and cultural contexts. By studying ethics, history, literature, and other arts and science disciplines, you'll broaden your understanding of contemporary issues.

You'll begin your studies with a multidisciplinary seminar, exploring a contemporary problem from multiple angles.

At the end of your studies, you'll take a capstone, problem-based seminar that will allow you to integrate your education and help you become an exceptional leader who has the knowledge and skills to make a difference.
