Extended Studies Certificate - First Nations Option
Recognizing that UFV is on Sto’:lo territory, this program honors the Sto’:lo people and an Aboriginal world view.
Similarly, there is an increasing number of people working in the social services and related fields who are seeking additional training in order to become more effective with their client groups.
This extended studies certificate will be of interest to people who already have a recognized diploma or degree in a relevant field.
The four courses in the program may be used as part of another credential (eg. BA Arts, BSW, Social Services Diploma, Social Services Diploma - First Nations Option, BA Adult Education and Bachelor of General Studies), or taken as an extended studies certificate after completing another credential.
This program is not directly employment-related, but would be of interest to those already possessing a human service or relevant credential who wish to work directly with an Aboriginal group.
