What You Will Learn
Learn about a relatively wide range of subjects in order to acquire knowledge and intellectual capacities that are general to all walks of life, rather than specific to a particular profession or trade. The Liberal Arts Certificate is a flexible program, both in content and in delivery model. It allows students to:
•Take the first year of university studies while remaining in a smaller city
•Take introductory university classes in comfortable class sizes that offer a more personal, supportive and productive learning environment
•Begin full-time or part-time studies with a defined academic goal in sight
•Complete a university program that may or may not have begun at a different post-secondary institution (up to 15 credits may be non-University of Regina courses)
There is a two-stage application process for a Liberal Arts Certificate:
- Contact a Great Plains College student adviser and they will work with you to complete the University of Regina undergraduate application form. You must also apply to Great Plains College.
- Apply to the University of Regina through the Liberal Arts Certificate application process.
Apply as a full-time student before April 30 and you may be eligible for a $500 - $5,000 Entrance Scholarship. If you are in Grade 11 and have at least a 70% average, apply before June 30 and you are eligible for a $1,000 Early Entrance Award.
