4.2 Certificate Program
An undergraduate certificate program at the Marine Institute offers a flexible option for students seeking to develop specialized knowledge and competencies. It provides a starting point for university studies or acts as an adjunct to an undergraduate degree. It is not designed to satisfy specific employment credentials. It 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. Undergraduate certificate programs introduce students to a focused subject area, placing greater emphasis on foundation-level knowledge.
The Certificate in Leadership is administered by the School of Ocean Technology and is designed for those who are interested in exploring the field of leadership. Its goal is to enhance the leadership skills of the leaders of tomorrow while strengthening the relationships between the civilian and military domains and Canadian universities.
A student interested in an undergraduate Certificate in Leadership is first encouraged to consult with the Coordinator of Programs or the Program Chair to discuss the requirements of the program.
