The Diploma Program in Canadian Studies

New diploma requirements effective Sept 2012.

The Canadian Studies program offers a Diploma for students who wish to undertake a single academic year (September-April) focused directly upon Canadian political economy, society, environment and culture. Students wishing to enrol in the Diploma program must apply, in writing, to the chair of the program, indicating course preferences. As the number of spaces is limited, acceptance is not automatic. The Chair or designate selects the successful candidates in consultation with the Admissions Committee.

Eligibility

Applicants must either be students registered in, or graduates of an accredited post- secondary educational institution normally other than Trent University. An official transcript, including evidence of the content of courses completed and grades received must accompany the application.

Language requirements

In accordance with University regulations applicants must have a competence in written and spoken English. Facility in the French language is desirable but not compulsory.

Special events

All students admitted to the Diploma program attend field trips, films, special lectures and conferences as part of their curricular activity.

Visas, fees, and accommodation

International students admitted to the Diploma program are expected to make their own arrangements for visas, financing and accommodation during the year at Trent. Nevertheless, every effort will be made to assist in this process.

The Diploma

The Diploma is awarded in the Spring. With it is included a Trent University transcript identifying all courses undertaken and grades received. Upon successful completion of the Diploma, students may apply for admission to the B.A. program in Canadian Studies. Credits earned in the Diploma program are transferable to the B.A. degree.
