Get an Honours University Degree & a College Certificate in four years

Take advantage of the practical, hands-on skills gained through a Mohawk College certificate without leaving the McMaster campus.

Earn a Mohawk College Certificate as you complete your Social Sciences degree

The McMaster/Mohawk Affiliated Certificate Program allows you to earn a degree and a specialized certificate concurrently. 

This program is exclusive to McMaster Social Sciences students and offers an innovative way to balance the theoretical knowledge you expect from a university education with the practical application traditionally offered in college. Students will gain desired practical skills, taught by working professionals in the field. All courses are taught on campus by Mohawk College instructors.

McMaster/Mohawk Affiliated certificates

  • Can be paired with any Social Sciences degree
  • Taught on the McMaster campus (no travelling)
  • Completed using your elective credits so you are:
    • NOT extending your time to complete your degree or certificate
    • NOT incurring additional course fees

How it works

Affiliated certificates are available to all Social Sciences students in a three-level Bachelor of Arts or four-level Honours Bachelor of Arts program. Students are eligible to enrol in certificate courses once they enter into a Level II program. These specialized certificates will be issued by Mohawk College at the time of graduation and are based upon successful completion of the six prescribed courses for the particular certificate. You can take all six courses (18 units) for the certificate or take individual courses as electives.
