The certificates listed at the right are specific to the Faculty of Arts and Social Science and Faculty of Science.

Certificates are one way that Dalhousie recognizes graduating students who have achieved a level of proficiency or specialization in a particular area or subject. Certificates are awarded upon graduation from a degree program and will be recorded on the student’s academic transcript.

Certificates vary in their goals and requirements. Many have a research or practicum component. Some are interdisciplinary, requiring work in more than one department, while others focus on a specialization within a single program. Some Certificates are designed for students enrolled in particular programs, while others are broadly applicable to students in any program.
