NSCAD University offers three certificate programs for those wishing to pursue studies after obtaining an undergraduate degree.


The Visual Arts Certificate in Studio

Individuals interested in expanding their expertise in the visual arts and have earned an undergraduate university degree, have a unique opportunity to earn a graduate certificate from NSCAD University. Approved through the NSCAD Academic Council, NSCAD Board of Governors and Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission (MPHEC), the 30-credit Visual Arts Certificate in Studio is designed for both art specialists and non-art specialists.


The Visual Arts Certificate for Teachers

Approved by the Nova Scotia Department of Education, the 30-credit Visual Arts Certificate for Teachers meets Nova Scotia provincial requirements for one level of Advanced Teacher Certification. The program is designed for all teachers interested in strengthening their knowledge of the visual arts for integration into their teaching practices. Art Specialist teachers will upgrade their studio skills and further their knowledge of contemporary visual arts issues. Non-Art Specialist teachers will gain an understanding of art making, its application to the classroom and the role of the visual arts in contemporary culture.


Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Design

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Design is a 30-credit program normally taken in the Fall and Winter semesters. It is composed of a mix of Studio (21 credits) and Liberal Arts and Science (9 credits) courses. This program is not specific to any particular area of design; it is meant to be a generalist design credential, in keeping with the broad, interdisciplinary approach in NSCAD’s BDes and MDes program.
