Our certificate programs are highly participatory programs focused on specific topics.
These programs give candidates the opportunity to share ideas and to exchange experiences. A wide variety of presentation, case study, and experimental and participatory methods are used. For your convenience we offer certificate programs in both the spring and fall. The schedule is arranged so that it is possible to take multiple certificates, one after the other.

The Coady Institute is able to offer some certificate programs in locations around the world. These programs are two to three weeks in length. Keep checking this space for new program offerings in locations other than the Coady Institute facilities at the StFX campus.
The Coady's on-campus program fees include the cost of tuition, accommodation and meals. Thanks to the generous financial support of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), as well as number of individual and institutional donors, we are able to offer a range of full and partial scholarships. Special efforts are made to enable women and aboriginal peoples to attend. Candidates are fully responsible for covering the cost of their own travel.
