Coursework for the Certificate in Civic Engagement and Global Citizenship

The Certificate in Civic Engagement and Global Citizenship requires completion of 2.50 credits of academic coursework: 1.00 credits of required coursework and 1.50 credits of restricted electives.

Required Courses (1.00 credits)

The two required courses are purpose-built for the Certificate. The first course (UNIV*2410) will help you to develop an understanding of the concepts, values and skills related to effective engagement and responsible global citizenship. In the capstone course (UNIV*4410) you will critically reflect on the connections you have developed between your personal identity as an engaged citizen and the impacts your contributions have made within the broader community.

  • UNIV*2410 - Engaged Global Citizenship (Fall semesters)
  • UNIV*4410 - Civic Engagement with Communities (Winter semesters)

Restricted Elective Courses (1.50 credits)

In addition to the required courses, you must complete one restricted elective from each of the thematic areas listed below. At least one of these courses must be at the 3000 or 4000 level. While the restricted electives can be completed in any order, you are strongly encouraged to complete all three restricted electives prior to registering for UNIV*4410. If you are enrolled in an undergraduate degree program, up to 1.00 credits may also count towards a major or minor. Please consult with your Program Counsellor to see if the Certificate will fit in your schedule of studies.
