[Various Subjects] [Teacher Education] [Research Based Degrees] [Secondary Language Learning]
SubjectsOur degrees originated in customary and statutory context.
For our post-2004 in-BC degree context, see update.
We collaborate in the quality concern and other academic organizations listed here. Primary degree categories are Applied Science, Arts, Comparative Religion (Peace Studies/Theology), Business Administration, General Studies, and Technology. The university and member colleges also develop specially-structured programs (e.g., Architecture, Financial Practition, Health Services, etc), accepted in a local jurisdiction (country, province, etc) and/or by a particular professional organization, for which the outcome degree is likewise awarded by the university. Examples include the various programs intermittently conducted by BC Montesori Teachers College in Vancouver BC; the Financial Practitioners programs conducted by CPPD-IFPAS, Singapore (accredited by the American Academy of Financial Management); and some Engineering and other programs conducted by IMT in the National Electricity Administration Training Centre Building, Nepal. Contact member colleges directly about programs conducted in their particular jurisdictions. When a portfolio substantially encompasses various categories, the General Studies degree is most appropriate. Within a primary degree category (but with present limitations in the sciences), you may also secure a special mention (North American "major", British "reading"). General Studies (open learning) is an acceptable designation in upper-levels bachelor and even master degree context. Thus our master degree may reflect either a traditional concentration (e.g., post-graduate courses in political science after concentrating on political science for the bachelor) - or instead, the accumulation of six years (or five with thesis) in a wider variety of post-secondary learning. more details
Second Language StudiesThe degree when awarded specifies e.g., "Associate of Arts in English as Second Language", "Bachelor of Arts in French as Second Language", etc. The credentialing portfolio accumulates all appropriate second-language courses taken, whether taken in the candidate's home country or abroad. more details
Teacher EducationIf you are an Early Childhood Educator - Mainstream or Montessori - then you know that most degree-granting institutions tend to give somewhat skimpy recognition to ECE preparation. The courses you took are often downplayed - even though you likely studied the same Erikson, Montessori, Piaget, taught in degree-standing developmental psychology courses. We give your courses appropriate recognition, enhancing the Education - including Early Childhood - professional community. more details
