All undergraduate students with good academic standing are eligible to apply for admission to the certificate program. Students who complete three required courses and two elective courses out of the fourteen courses listed below will be awarded the FVP certificate.
Any of the courses below may be substituted for other equivalent courses upon authorization by the Faculty Council of the department offering that course. Courses completed prior to the application to the certificate program will be counted towards the requirements, if they are among the specified courses. A student can fulfill part of the requirements of the FVP by taking an “Independent Study” on a relevant topic from one of the participating departments in lieu of a required course with the prior consent of the FVP and the independent study instructor.
The average grade from the five courses must be at least 2.50. A student failing to meet this grade requirement is not qualified to receive the certificate.
