Ways to Study
A bachelor's degree recognizes you for completing a group of courses in a career or academic specialty. It's usually 120 credits (40 courses) and takes about 4 years of full-time study.
Career programs prepare you to enter a new job or upgrade to a higher position in your field. They are usually 60-credit programs that take about 2 years of full-time study. Many are offered on a part-time basis.
Start studying at Douglas, then transfer to another institution to complete your studies. Douglas offers "UT" courses in arts and humanities, science, and commerce and business.
A post-degree diploma (PDD) earns you a recognized credential that can help you get a job, take your career in a new direction, beef up your earning potential and, for working professionals, upgrade and broaden your skills. Admission to a post-degree diploma program typically requires that you have a bachelor's degree.
This credential recognizes you for completing two years (60 credits) of studies. With an associate degree, you can get priority admission to some BC universities, and a guarantee of 60 transfer credits. In many cases, an associate degree allows you to transfer to a university and enter third year of a four-year bachelor's degree program.
Reach your educational goals, even if you're busy with work or other responsibilities. As a part-time student, you'll take 1-3 courses per semester. Choose afternoon or evening classes.
Choose from a variety of flexible adult learning options, whether your goal is professional upgrading and career development, exploring a topic of interest or starting a new career. Enrol in individual courses and seminars, or complete a part-time certificate.

Gain job skills and make contacts in your field while earning credits toward your credential. Once you've completed half of a diploma or University Transfer program, you can alternate semesters of study with semesters of paid, full-time employment. Offered for a limited number of programs.
