This eight-month graduate certificate program provides you with the multi-disciplinary skills and experience required to be an successful public service employee. The program was developed by municipal government professionals with the goal of providing graduates with the skills to be successful in the public sector.
You will receive advanced training in communications, policy analysis, project management, information technology, finance, governance, leadership and human resources management. Delivered in a small class setting, the program benefits from experienced professors who are still active or employed within the public sector.
Throughout this program you will develop the following skills:
Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid.
In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility.
Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
