The Graduate Diploma allows students who have completed an undergraduate degree to re-focus or expand their body of knowledge by completing the requirement of one of the undergraduate majors (or equivalent) in the Bachelor of Science not already completed. Students will be required to have completed level 1 prerequisites.
This provides a pathway to the Master of Science Streams.
Intended learning outcomes
Students who complete the graduate diploma should:
- Demonstrate an independent approach to knowledge that uses rigorous methods of inquiry and appropriate theories and methodologies that are applied with intellectual honesty and a respect for ethical values;
- Apply critical and analytical skills and methods to the identification and resolution of problems within complex changing social contexts;
- Act as informed and critically discriminating participants within the community of scholars, as citizens and in the work force;
- Communicate effectively;
- Commit to continuous learning;
- Be proficient in the use of appropriate modern technologies, such as the computer and other information technology systems, for the acquisition, processing and interpretation of data.
Core participation requirements: Fieldwork
The sites essential to this fieldwork are not wheelchair accessible and require students to traverse broken ground. Visual observation and interpretation of the sites is also an essential component, as is specimen and microscope work.
