The Faculty of Applied Programs provides a variety of programs for students at the certificate, diploma and degree levels. In addition to the diverse and well-recognized programs for students who wish to complete a career- related certificate or diploma, it is now possible to “ladder” several of these credentials to a bachelor’s degree program. Instruction in the Faculty of Applied Programs is delivered through conventional and innovative instructional methods. These include individual as well as group learning experiences, computer instruction options for some students, and excellent practicum placements for others. Co-operative Education is offered in some programs. The balance between practical, “hands-on” learning and a liberal arts education enables students to graduate with excellent skills as well as the ability to think critically and analytically in a range of employment or advanced educational settings.

General Studies in the Faculty of Applied Programs

The General Studies category is designed for students wishing to take courses for their own interest or to help them in choosing a direction of study. As a General Studies student, you may take arts, science, and/or applied courses. General Studies is not a true “program”; it has no structured group of courses. Students can apply later for any of the certificate, diploma, or degree options at UCFV. Credit is given for courses recognized by your chosen option. Many courses can be transferred to another institution.
