Program Description
Program Courses
As the world further transitions from the industrial era into the information age, our education needs to keep pace. Technical, job-oriented training is no longer sufficient to handle the complex and shifting challenges of the 21st century.

Enter the liberal arts and sciences.

Consisting of arts, humanities, mathematics, and social, life and natural sciences, the liberal arts and sciences form the basis of a well-rounded education. They allow one to develop critical thinking, intellectual breadth, and an informed, worldly perspective - they allow one to really think.

In seminar classes (with 20 students or fewer), students examine one area of human inquiry after another on a Block Plan - taking one course at a time for three-and-a-half-weeks. Students learn to focus on one discipline in a short period of time, which is an important skill in today's world.

Our Foundation and Concentration programs are a fresh approach to the classic liberal arts and sciences. By crossing traditional boundaries and developing valued habits of mind, a Quest education develops students into effective problem solvers and lifelong learners. As such, every Quest student graduates with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree (BA&Sc).

Unlike conventional universities where students take several classes simultaneously in a semester, at Quest students focus on single "block" courses that run three hours a day, every day, for three and a half weeks. There are no distractions, no multi-tasking, no competing opportunities pulling students in different directions. The block plan allows students to:

Focus - Continue course discussions and activities from one day to the next without interruptions, allowing for deep and meaningful learning.

Explore - Want to go to Hawaii to study volcanoes for two weeks as part of a geology class? Or take an all day trip to the Vancouver Art Museum for an art class? The Block plan ensures you can participate in course activities fully without competing interests.

Flexibility - With two 16-week semesters consisting of four blocks each, and two further blocks in the summer, you can create a course schedule that works for you. Choose which months you wish to be on campus, and which months you wish to travel, work, or pursue other learning opportunities.
