About graduate microprograms

These programs offer you

  • Certified recognition of your expertise, with an official University of Ottawa graduate certificate.
  • Direct access to a network of experts in the field.
  • A gateway to further graduate studies. Units you earn in each microprogram are stackable and can be credited towards a master’s program.

  • Eligible undergraduate students (as part of an undergraduate degree)
  • Anyone working in industry, with the right background, interested in acquiring or updating specialized skills and knowledge without committing to a full degree program (You can complete a graduate microprogram of two or three courses and receive a certificate.)
