XI. Special Study Opportunities
Certificates and Diplomas
The University offers certificate and diploma programs in Applied Statistics, Communication Process, Environmental Citizenship, Environmental Conservation, Food Science, Hospitality Studies, Leadership, and Public Policy and Administration. These programs are designed for those who want to develop or upgrade skills in one of these areas without necessarily proceeding towards a three or four year degree program. These programs may be completed on a part-time basis over a period of time.
For those who are in a degree program or who will be transferring into a degree program, there will be a restriction as to the number of courses which can be used for both a certificate/diploma and a degree specialization. Up to 50% of the requirements for a degree-credit certificate can be applied towards a degree. Note that the Certificate in Leadership is exempt from this restriction.
For more information, please consult with the Program Counsellor for Open Learning (ext. 56050).
