Humak has strived to make its Open UAS course selection even more accessible than before by broadening the selection of courses offered in different languages. New courses are constantly being planned, and the goal is to offer courses from various fields in humanities to as wide of an audience as possible. Courses offered in English and Swedish can be easily viewed from our dedicated English language store page.
Open UAS courses are designed to work in tandem with studies in related fields, or as standalone experiences. Choosing a course from Open UAS is a good option for people interested in deepening their understanding of a certain subject, or for people wanting to familiarize themselves with course contents before jumping into a degree programme.
Humak’s web store currently offers two different Community Educator courses that are available for enrolment. Community Education is one of Humak’s focus areas, as seen in the ever popular Community Educator and Adventure and Outdoor Education Bachelor’s degree programmes.
We decided to branch out and offer our specialized knowledge of Community Education to everyone through Open UAS. These include Community educators as NGO and youth work experts 5 ECTS and Community Educators as Adventure Education Experts 5 ECTS.
The aim of Community educators as NGO and youth work experts is to deepen the student’s understanding of NGO work in Finland, as well as its history, development and current state. As with all Community Educator courses, learning pedagogic skills and knowing how to apply them in practice play a major role in the studies.
Community Educators as Adventure Education Experts is an introductory course into Adventure Education studies. During the course students will learn the basic ideas and concepts of Outdoor Education, which are designed to promote personal growth. Participants discover the meaning of adventure education in preventive work, in supporting the growth and development of individuals and groups, in promoting personal engagement, in reinforcing the sense of community, and in promoting well-being.
A brand new addition to our online course selection is a series of 5 ECTS courses that focus on the relationship between culture and sustainability. COSM consists of three courses that all tackle a different aspect of culture and sustainability. The course is led and planned by Marcin Poprawski, an expert in the field of cultural management.

Humak’s web store also offers courses for those interested in interpreting and alternative communication methods as well as for students keen on improving their knowledge about diversity and human rights. Human Rights and Diversity 5 ECTS familiarizes students with the democratic value base that functions as the basis of professional thinking and practice. The course also covers culture and gender-sensitive work approach.
As society is in a state of constant change, it’s important to adapt to new environments. Thus, it is important to understand the functions and concepts that form the basis of our society. Human Right and Diversity offers a crash course on the inner workings of society.
Multimodal Interaction in Professional Contexts 3 ECTS develops interaction skills with a special focus on linguistic accessibility. The familiarizes students with a multimodal view of interaction and examines the utilization of the concept in different working environments. Communication is not just words, meanings are conveyed by both verbal and non-verbal means, the course is suited for anyone interested in deepening their communication skills.
