5.3 Non-Degree Programs
The School of Arts and Social Science offers two non-degree programs in English as a Second Language program, the Intensive English Bridge Program at Grenfell (IEBP-G) and the Intensive English Program at Grenfell (IEP-G). The School also offers the Certificate in Sustainable Rural Communities.
The Certificate in Sustainable Rural Communities is comprised of 21 credit hours and is designed for those who are interested in the study of practical and theoretical understandings of sustainable rural communities, with a focus on real-world applications of contemporary strategies to address opportunities and issues within rural places. Core courses will dissect the term ‘rural’ and examine the urban-rural divide through a critical lens. Specific attention will be paid to current issues facing rural Newfoundland and Labrador across multiple sectors: tourism, environment, economy, culture, and heritage.
English as a Second Language programs are offered under the School of Arts and Social Science.
