About

In providing a core of courses that consider the humanities and fine arts aspects of Black cultures in the Americas, the Black Canadian Studies Certificate is unique in Canada and across North America. The certificate’s uniqueness is enhanced by incorporating a professional application component through a new Black Canadian Studies practicum for students interested in leveraging their understanding of black cultures in Canada into careers in the public or not-for-profit sectors.
