The Graduate Certificate Program is designed to meet the continuing professional development needs of those involved in the broad field of adult learning and education. Are you responsible for providing adult learning opportunities in your workplace, union, professional organization, community, advocacy group, non-profit society or business? Are involved with designing learning programs for adults, exploring what their interests and needs are, creating a program that enables adults to develop their knowledge and learn new skills, and assessing the outcomes and effectiveness of such learning? Are you wanting to study at the graduate level but do not have the time or resources to complete a full master program? Then this program is for you. Please note, for those who decide to continue into the master program then you can transfer your Certificate courses.

Students must complete 12 credits including the three MEd core courses listed below and one elective.

For a description of the core courses please visit the main ALE page HERE. Students can complete the Certificate within a year if they take one course per term; if students can take more than one course per term, they can complete in less time.
