Professional, Applied and Continuing Education (PACE)

The Faculty of Graduate Studies is pleased to partner with Professional, Applied and Continuing Education (PACE) to offer current and recent graduate students the opportunity for further skills development with the following programs:
The Higher Education Teaching Certificate will prepare students for teaching responsibilities they may undertake during and/or post-degree. It is intended to be an introduction to the teaching culture of higher education. It will also be useful for undergraduate students enrolled in Honours programs, and others for whom communication and presentation skills are important.

The Postgraduate Professional Skills Certificate provides students with professional and career development skills to complement their academic training. As students enter an increasingly competitive workforce, distinguishing oneself is the key to career opportunities in a workplace where employers are seeking high potential employees who fit their strategic plan. This program provides training in areas such as Project Management, Oral and Written Communication, Networking, Organizational Behaviour and Budgeting.
