    an Arts degree?
  • 3. Skeptical ever?

  • 11. Why sweatshops?
  • 12. By focusing on essential skills

  • 15. Changing careers? What if you’re not even sure which career you want to start with first?
     
    There are more Arts students at Okanagan College than there are enrolled in any other program—more than Business, more than trades, technology, or health.
  • 16. Fight the Power?
  • 17. Most of our students are just like you.
    They’re taking the time to
    explore their options before they
    make a choice for life.

    an Arts education gives them
    more opportunities than
    any other program.

    in small classes.
  • 20. Why is a comedy show the only source of reliable news on TV?

    and transfer these credits
    fully to any BC university
    where you can begin
    the third year of study.
  • 24. Racism? Today?
