  • Objectives
    The Certificate provides an academic focus in PEFA studies with some performance options, and aims to build citizens who are culturally literate, active supporters of the arts. The academic course credits are transferable so that students who discover an interest in Music, Art History, Film Studies, Theatre History or Creative Writing for the stage or screen may pursue those disciplines. The Certificate is also appropriate as preparation for intensive studies in the Douglas College Theatre, Stagecraft and Music programs.
  • Entry requirements
    The one-year Performing and Fine Arts Certificate will appeal to students coming directly out of high school and to mature students returning for enrichment or new career direction.
