Undergraduate Certificates

“Undergraduate Certificate” is the term applied to a program of study attesting to a level of competence or skill in a particular area or field. It is distinct from a defined undergraduate degree program, stream, specialization or informal concentration. A certificate recognizes a specific grouping of courses that are cross-disciplinary but with a thematic coherence, form a coherent yet distinctive complement to the major of a degree program or lead to the acquisition of specific skills or professional expertise that may meet requirements of outside accrediting bodies.

All academic regulations applying to degree students in degree programs will apply to students in certificates.
