Langara looks to create job-ready grads with applied social sciences and humanities diploma

March 11, 2019

“What if a social sciences and humanities diploma also included training in microeconomics and macroeconomics, entrepreneurship, business-computer applications, accounting for managers, and an introduction to programming and web programming?” To answer this question, Vancouver’s Langara College has developed a two-year diploma program in applied social sciences and humanities. Nicknamed “the DASSH,” the program will also offer education in research methods in psychology, sociology, criminology, and anthropology, a basic understanding of statistics, an introduction to social, personality, and abnormal psychology, as well as an introduction to government and politics, philosophy, essay-writing, and short prose. Georgia Straight (BC)
