Certificate in Aboriginal Adult Education

The Faculty of Education offers a Certificate in Aboriginal Adult Education. This program is designed to enhance the abilities of individuals working with, or aspiring to work with Aboriginal adult populations in a variety of educational/training contexts.

The Certificate in Aboriginal Adult Education allows those persons who are working in related fields who are not interested in pursuing a degree an opportunity to complete the certificate. The certificate is awarded upon successful completion of five education credits with a minimum overall average of 60 percent.

Courses are taken on a part-time basis, in sequence, one course per session. It requires five sessions of study to complete the five core courses in Aboriginal Adult Education.

Each is a full university undergraduate credit course of 72 hours in duration.

Courses are offered face-to-face at venues across the province.

Classes are usually located at Native institutes, colleges or universities, or similar locations in both urban and rural setting. The flexibility of the program allows for small groups of learners to form a class.

Classes are held on alternating weekends.
