Overview

College Diploma in General Arts and Science - Diploma Option

This two-year diploma program is designed for students who wish to acquire a general education in the arts and sciences while having the flexibility to explore further educational options within the college or to pursue a degree at a local university. 

Students will acquire communication, critical thinking and research skills while exploring contemporary issues in today’s global society. 

Students will explore a topic of interest by constructing a research project, paper, and portfolio culminating in a presentation to an expert audience.

In the second semester, students will consult with their program coordinator to select from a variety of post-secondary courses in disciplines of their choice. 

The program is constructed to allow students to explore options that meet future academic goals by selecting courses in a major discipline or courses eligible for credit transfer at the University of Waterloo (courses are subject to availability). 

After successfully completing this program, students may wish to apply to programs within Conestoga College or pursue further education at other institutions.
