The arts are a great way for children, teens and adults to build confidence, be social, learn self-discipline and get creative while having fun learning an instrument, developing acting skills or expressing themselves through visual arts. Arts programs have a strong impact on a child’s growth and success. Children do better in school, have positive emotional and behavioural development, and have a greater ability to make friends and engage in teamwork and leadership. Overall, the arts have many positive effects on people of all ages.

CERTIFICATE IN PUBLIC RELATIONS (PR)

Tue

I took the Certificate in Public Relations because I realized there was a gap in my Communications knowledge even after completing the Marketing program. I really liked the relevant case studies and real-world company examples that helped me to see the value of public relations and understand how the right PR campaign can significantly help a business. The Certificate in Public Relations has helped open me to up to additional opportunities in the marketing & communications field by building on my existing knowledge and providing me with new skills. I currently work in customer communications and I find the combination of marketing and PR knowledge is incredibly complementary. – Natalie J., Senior Communications Strategist CERTIFICATE IN EXTENDED STUDIES IN INCLUSIVE EDUCATION (CESIE) Course & Section Course Title

HIGH SCHOOL ACCELERATED PROGRAM

CASUAL UNIVERSITY STUDIES

The U of R High School Accelerated Program is a great way to transition to university and develop skills to excel. Grade 11 and 12 students can get a taste of university education by taking courses that will count towards a degree, and potentially, high school credits. Accelerated students can register for on-campus and flexible courses (online & televised). When you start university, you can lighten your course load and free up your schedule to work part-time during your first year without falling behind or graduate earlier. The $100 application fee is covered by the U of R.

The Casual Studies Program is designed to allow members of the public to take courses for general interest or as individual professional development opportunities. Applicants must be aged at least 18 years old (or a high school graduate). The maximum registration for any term is 6 credit hours (two classes). Transcripts are not required unless a desired course has prerequisites. Academic advising is not required, but is available from the Credit Studies Division on request.

PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT & RECOGNITION

This course helps first-time university students develop reading, writing and critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in any program. You will develop the knowledge to find online databases and journal articles, evaluate information sources, write persuasive essays, demonstrate academic integrity and more that will apply to other courses. There will be significant instructor feedback and student collaboration so that you feel supported and encouraged in your learning. Visit www.uregina.ca and click ‘Search this Term’s Classes’ for ACAD 100 courses offered this semester.

Are you a mature student returning to school or in the midst of a career change? If you are, Prior Learning Assessment & Recognition (PLAR) may be a way for you to receive academic credit while saving you time and money. PLAR identifies, assesses and recognizes the skills and knowledge a person has developed for the purpose of awarding academic credit. Speak to your faculty advisor or contact us for information.

“EvEryonE would bEnEfit from a rEnEwEd College Avenue CAmpus.” – DAYLENE SLIZ, STUDENT, CENTRE FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF REGINA

Like many others, Daylene Sliz has greatly benefitted from the networking opportunities that have come with studying at the Centre for Continuing Education. Building Knowledge – The College Avenue Campus Renewal Project would see the Centre receive extensive upgrades. Says Daylene, “I think renewing the campus would give future students the same great opportunities I’ve enjoyed. Everyone would benefit from a renewed College Avenue Campus.” Visit uregina.ca/building-knowledge or call (306) 585-4024 to learn more.
