General Education Electives

Within each two- and three-year diploma/advanced diploma program, students must take 3 general education electives within their program of study. These courses are not related to the skills you develop throughout the rest of your program but help ensure our graduates are citizens who can work and adapt to Canada’s changing and diverse society. These required courses are mandated through the Ministry of Colleges and Universities to better prepare graduates for the workplace. They are intended to encourage you to explore a broad range of personal and societal topics and to develop self-understanding as well as critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills.

The following is a list of General Education Elective courses that are available during the Winter 2023 semester. The majority of courses will be offered in a virtual or online format due to the continued pandemic. This means that if there is a schedule associated (in-class or hybrid) you will have a timetabled period where you will meet with your classmates and faculty member. When you register, the list of available courses will populate for your program. Please pay careful attention to the method of delivery before you choose your Elective.
