Experiential learning component

Experience learning in an intercultural context

Along with your academic work at Dalhousie, learning a foreign language by experiencing a new or different culture will help you understand the nuances of how people communicate across cultures. The experiential learning component of the certificate can be satisfied by doing one of the following:

  • Minimum one semester work, volunteer or study abroad (study at Dalhousie for international students).
  • Minimum 75 hours volunteering or working in an intercultural context within Canada.
  • A blending of work, volunteer, or study abroad for less than one full semester and a local volunteer or work placement.

An advisor’s approval is required before you undertake this component of the certificate.
