Selkirk College currently offers a two-year Interdisciplinary Studies Diploma (ISD) that provides students with a multidisciplinary approach to their studies.
The ISD allows students with an interest in different subject areas or disciplines the opportunity to combine courses and shorter certificates into a two-year Diploma. Students may select from a list of courses in different subject areas, or may combine two one-year certificates into a two-year IDS.
Upon successful completion of a minimum of 60 credits of study, which takes place over 4 academic semesters, students will be awarded the two-year IS Diploma. Students may apply for the ISD when first applying to Selkirk College if they have discussed the course and subject area options with a Selkirk College counselor, Program Advisor, or School Chair. Alternatively, students may enroll in an Associate Degree or two-year Diploma, and upon successful completion of one semester of studies, may declare their intention to enroll in the ISD. In either case, a study plan must be create by a College counselor, Program Advisor, or School Chair.
Entry requirements for particular ISD will depend on the courses or certificates chosen. Some common areas of study that have been successfully combined by students are:
Social Service Worker and Health Care Assistant
Community and Classroom Support Worker and Health Care Assistant
University Arts and Sciences and Health Care Assistant
Business Studies and University Arts and Sciences
In accordance with current ISD program policy, a student can be awarded a maximum of 2 credentials within the ISD: the Diploma itself, and one certificate.
