Certificate in Professional Development

Graduate students may be interested in attending an assortment of workshops across theme areas in order to earn a not-for-credit Certificate in Professional Development in the process. Expanding Horizons offers workshops in five (5) skill areas and students who complete at least one (1) workshop from each of the five areas and a minimum of 12 workshops in total will receive a certificate of completion from the School of Graduate Studies.

The program is based on a framework proposed by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies which identifies areas of skills and competencies that prepare graduate students for their future roles and that are not typically integrated into their academic programs

NB: Expanding Horizons workshops attended will also go on a supplemental training record.
