Continue your education with a university undergraduate degree-credit certificate

The goal of the Interdisciplinary Certificate Program in Dementia Studies is to provide education about dementia progressive diseases that reduce cognitive and functional performances mainly (but not exclusively) in an older population.

This program emphasizes the retention of quality of life for people with dementia and for their care partners. The courses are sequenced to move students from an understanding of normal aging changes, through the study of different dementias and on to an integration of knowledge through the use of a case-study approach. Courses are designed to promote beliefs and attitudes that enhance the quality of life for people with dementia and for their care partners.

This program will be of particular interest to professional and family care partners, including those who provide care or service for individuals living with dementia in the community in independent, supported living, long-term care or chronic care environments.

Program Delivery
This innovative certificate program in Dementia Studies is offered entirely online (web-based) on a part-time basis.  The certificate consists of four, university undergraduate degree-level, half-credit courses, and can be completed over three terms: fall, winter & spring.
