The diploma program in the humanities is designed primarily for mature students who wish to explore possibilities for study in the humanities without committing themselves to a full degree program. Candidates must have sought and obtained admission to the university. Students are admitted to the diploma program on the recommendation of the faculty coordinator and/or the chair of the program steering committee.
Students may complete the program on a part-time basis, but must complete successfully at least 18 units of course work over a period of two to six years. Diploma students, with the guidance and assistance of a faculty coordinator, will arrange a program of courses organized around a particular theme or period. Students may select courses from faculties and divisions other than the Faculty of Humanities, but such selection will be subject to the permissions of the departments involved and to the approval of the faculty coordinator.
In the first year of their program students must take HUMA 100, a credit seminar, and HUMA 010, a brief non-credit orientation seminar. To remain in the program and to graduate in the program, diploma candidates must maintain a grade point average of at least 4.0.
Credit obtained within the Humanities Diploma Program may be transferable to a regular undergraduate degree program. However, such transferability of credit is always subject to the specific requirements of the degree program.
The program is administered jointly by the Faculty of Humanities and by the Division of Continuing Studies. All inquiries concerning details and regulations of the program should be addressed to Maxine Reitsma, Program Coordinator, Division of Continuing Studies; email: email@example.com.
