Many students use the one-year certificate program to qualify for admission to various college and university programs. Others apply to the two-year diploma program, which allows them to continue on to other college and university programs with advanced standing if they meet the grade point average and admission requirements for those programs.
Many others prefer to enter the world of work directly from the program. An education in the liberal arts and sciences is valued in many workplaces and our program helps students to develop the communication and critical thinking skills required in the world of work, particularly for careers that encourage on-the-job professional development.
Future Study Options
Vocation-specific college studies: Students who meet the grade point average (GPA) requirements may be granted exemptions or advanced standing in other college programs, depending on the length of their studies, their grades, the college and the program requirements.
Students who successfully complete the one-year certificate may proceed directly into the second year of the diploma program.
University transfer options: After one year of full-time studies, students who meet the GPA requirements may gain admission to many university Liberal Arts and Humanities programs, sometimes with transfer credits, depending on their grades, the university and the program requirements. Students should be aware of any program-specific and institutional requirements at those universities.
In addition, graduates of this program may qualify for entry into George Brown’s degree programs in business, hospitality and technology.
