 New McMaster/Mohawk Affiliated Certificates

-These courses are taught at McMaster University and are considered equivalent to a total of 18 units of university elective credit.

Enhance your Social Sciences degree with practical and applied skills that will prepare you for ‘real-world’ challenges and opportunities.

Students complete a general Social Sciences first year program, and then select their applied certificate stream based on their interests or future career aspirations.The two certificate streams presently offered are the Certificate in Leadership and Management in the Not-for-Profit Sector and the Business Studies Certificate. And, starting September 2013, we are introducing the opportunity to take three courses towards a new Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) certificate.

Affiliated certificates are available to all Social Sciences students in a three-level Bachelor of Arts or four-level Honours Bachelor of Arts program. These specialized certificates will be issued by Mohawk College at the time of graduation from the degree program and are based upon successful completion of the six prescribed courses as outlined (below) for the particular certificate. Students may take all six courses (18 units) for the certificate or may take courses individually as electives
