Work-Integrated Learning

As you’re learning at King’s, you’re also preparing for life after you graduate.

The humanities help us recognize that our pursuits shouldn’t benefit just a few amongst us—they must create a future reflecting and embodying the shared values and ideals of many. That takes informed conversations. The humanities provide a strong educational foundation for the professional work force we collectively need.

Right now, there is also increased professional demand for foundational skills such as critical thinking, social perceptiveness, active listening, clear writing and complex problem solving. Well-rounded students become flexible and adaptable global citizens who are prepared to build a bright future for themselves and society.
