Part-time Continuing Education Certificate
Globalization brings the peoples of the world closer together. However, discrimination and other forms of intolerance continue to cause problems. In our increasingly multicultural society these issues can lead to exclusion and inequality, often along racial and ethnic lines.
This certificate program is a direct response to learning needs identified by a broad range of representatives from multicultural, health, community services and justice agencies who recognize that racial inequity and negative stereotyping are significant social problems. In this six course certificate, learners will examine diversity issues in a social context, explore critical differences in cross-cultural communication and identify the sources, causes, forms and manifestations of these issues in our society.
This program is available online. Courses start January, May and September. Some courses start on a monthly basis.
This program is available on a course by course basis. Students may choose to complete one or more courses each semester. Students in this program are not eligible for OSAP funding. Courses within this program must be completed within 7 years, unless otherwise specified.
