The Intercultural Relations, Board of Governors certificate online program responds to learning needs identified by a range of representatives from human services and justice agencies who recognize that racial inequity and negative stereotyping in our increasingly globalized world can cause significant social problems. This four-course certificate allows students to examine diversity issues in a social context, explore critical differences in cross-cultural communication and identify the sources, causes, forms and manifestations of these issues in our society.
Note: Lambton College employees may be eligible to use completed courses for credit towards the Intercultural Communication Award through the Learning Innovation Centre.
