The Diploma Program in Intercultural Education prepares students to play a productive and socially responsible role in an increasingly multicultural and diverse world. This interdisciplinary program engages students in a wide range of current issues including:
- cross-cultural relations
- intercultural communication
- cultural diversity
- issues of power, oppression and privilege
Students will develop skills to support all aspects of cultural diversity, inclusion and social change in their community, their workplace and around the world. The program aims to develop social responsibility and a clearer understanding and awareness of the complex issues at play in a multicultural society.
The program welcomes students from varied backgrounds including those currently involved in professional and volunteer roles in multicultural and cross-cultural settings, or participants who would just like to increase their knowledge and understanding of current social and culturally-related issues.
Intercultural Education is a great choice for current UVic students who would like to complete a concurrent diploma with their undergraduate degree. Students completing an undergraduate degree in the Faculties of Fine Arts, Humanities, Human and Social Development, Business, Social Science or Education can explore the possibility of partnering Intercultural Education iploma studies with your undergraduate course work and applying course credit towards both programs.
