Camosun's career-focused diploma programs prepare you for employment with the added benefit of transfer credit into various degree programs at selected universities throughout BC and across Canada. Best of all, you can decide when to continue your education – transfer as soon as you graduate, or work for a while first and continue your education when the time is right.
