    • Extending the time to complete your degree
    • Incurring additional course fees

How it works

Affiliated certificates are available to all Social Sciences students in a three-level Bachelor of Arts or four-level Honours Bachelor of Arts program. Students are eligible to enroll in certificate courses once they enter into a level two program. These specialized certificates will be issued by Mohawk College at the time of graduation and are based upon successful completion of the six prescribed courses for the particular certificate. You can take all six courses (18 units) for the certificate or take individual courses as electives.
