Micro Programs

Saint Paul University offers a series of short programs, called “options,” made up of 15 or 18 credits (units).

There are two ways to register, for those who are interested:

  • register as a special student and take only the courses specified for the option; or
  • register as a regular student in any BA program and take the courses specified for the option.

In both cases, the option will appear on the official transcript once the required courses have been successfully completed.

A certificate signed by the dean of the faculty is also issued to students who complete the option.

Below is a list of the micro programs offered:


National Newcomer Navigation Network (N4) Online Program

In July 2019, the School of Ethics, Social Justice and Public Service partnered with the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) to develop an online education program for professionals working with newcomers to Canada. The program helps participants develop the knowledge and skills needed to help newcomers navigate local health and social service systems.

This online program is composed of two microprograms: Social Justice, Interpersonal Relations and Immigration and Serving Diversity: Settlement and Integration Needs and Challenges. The year-long program is part of the N4’s overall education initiative.

About the N4
