A certificate program in the Faculty of Arts offers a flexible option for students seeking to develop specialized knowledge and competencies. It provides a starting point for further university studies or acts as an adjunct to an undergraduate degree. A certificate program is not designed to satisfy specific employment credentials. A certificate is sufficiently specialized to ensure its academic integrity and normally features at least one required anchor course that is taken at the beginning of the program. The Faculty of Arts offers the Certificate in Criminology and the Certificate in Public Policy.
Students seeking information about a certificate program should contact the coordinator of the certificate program, the Office of the Dean of Arts, or the Office of the Registrar.
