The Diploma in Arts and Science Studies allows you to design your own full- or part-time program. Discover your passions by taking courses from many disciplines, or concentrate on a particular subject area if you already have a specific educational goal in mind.
Diploma to degree
The Diploma in Arts and Science Studies may lead you directly into a specific program or degree at another institution. If you are headed to UVic, you can complete your first two years of university study at Camosun. Our Academic Advising department can help you to choose the right courses for transfer into third-year studies at UVic or at many other institutions. This diploma can also lead to a full block transfer to Royal Roads University's Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communication program.
If you decide not to pursue a degree, the Diploma in Arts and Science Studies is a useful addition to your résumé, as many employers look for successful completion of two years of post-secondary education.
During your Diploma in Arts and Science Studies, you can take a Co-op or Internship option to complement your studies.
You will gain practical work experience, which may be paid or unpaid, through either one four-month internship or two co-op work terms. You can take your work term after you have completed at least eight courses in the program.
