Most diploma programs are completed concurrently with a degree.

As of a University Senate decision in February 2008, diploma students no longer need hold an undergraduate degree in order to be awarded their diploma.


The Division of Lifelong Learning was closed in 2012 and the following certificate programs are under review. Students who are eligible to pursue the program may continue to do so regardless of the outcome of the review. The Faculty of Arts is administering the Certificate while it is under review. Students who wish to be considered for a Certificate are encouraged to immediately declare their intentions by sending an email from their MUN account to the Office of the Registrar at reghelp@mun.ca

The Faculty of Arts develops and administers certificate programs for those who wish to build on their skills relative to current best practices and theories. The programs also provide an excellent starting point for further university studies or act as a valuable adjunct to a bachelors degree.
