Overview

Graduate Diploma in Canon Law

The Graduate Diploma in Canon Law (GDCL) is a graduate program that provides a specialization in canon law for non-canonists to complement their own education and career needs. The GDCL is offered annually.

The program at Saint Paul University consists of 15 credits of coursework. 

On completion of the diploma, qualified students meeting admission requirements may apply for admission to the Master of Canon Law program

The GDCL is intended for students who already have adequate training in a related discipline (theology, religious studies, philosophy, mission studies, etc.) and for students and practitioners of civil or common law who wish to acquire a further specialization in canon law.

The GDCL is conferred jointly by Saint Paul University and the University of Ottawa under the federation agreement's terms.

The GDCL is offered in both French and English. All compulsory courses are available in each language. Some elective courses may be offered in one language only.
