PROGRAM AT A GLANCE
TUITION & FEES
The first of its kind in western Canada, this new two-year diploma program explores what distinguishes settlement work from other disciplines in the human services sector. You will learn models and approaches to effectively work with migrant diaspora communities, and strategies to help bridge cultural divides between newcomer communities and Canadian society.
Courses in the program cover such topics as active listening, communication, intercultural competency, family dynamics, community development and human rights; culture, gender, and sexuality; and anti-oppressive practices and reconciliation.
The program may be entered directly in Year 1, or in Year 2 after completion of NorQuest’s Community Support Worker certificate program.
This program includes two 200-hour field placements.
