Learning environment

Modules feature a wide variety of instructional techniques, including group exercises, case studies, discussions and field trips. You’ll work through the program with a cohort—a group of fellow change agents—with whom you can share experience, ideas and expertise.

Coursework: What to expect

This certificate is university-level. You’ll complete advance readings and in-class exercises for each of the modules. You’ll also complete practical assignments for each module, as well as a paper and a poster presentation for your practicum.

Graduation requirements

To receive the Social Innovation Certificate, you must successfully complete all modules and your practicum project within a two-year period.

If you’re not ready to take the Social Innovation Certificate, you may still register for most modules individually if space is available. If you would like to be notified when seats become available, please join our email list.
