Bachelor of Arts in Learning Science Program
The Bachelor of Arts in Learning Science program is a four-year (128 credit) interdisciplinary undergraduate degree course taught by instructors and invited speakers with expertise in human learning in various contexts. Students construct their understanding aided by hands-on practice.
Instruction is provided in learning modules that enable learners to integrate content knowledge and skills, as well as theories and professional practice through active learning that takes place within and beyond the faculty, guided by relevant experts.
The first two years constitute what is called the “start-up learning process.” It provides diverse real-life experiences that enable learners to expand their perspectives before studying the core contents in Year 3, such as human learning, social and cultural aspects of learning, designing and facilitating learning processes, or research and development of learning innovations. In the final year, learners gain skills that are essential for entering the world of work, and choose course modules that enable them to build deep expertise in their chosen area of interest, such as education, applied arts in education, learning design and facilitation, or educational technology and innovations.
