Do I have options to continue my education once I complete the CIM program?
Yes! A degree is closer than you think! Once you complete the CIM program with Continuing Education, you can block transfer up to 24 credits of the 90 you will need to graduate over to the Bachelor of Arts Integrated Studies Degree (BAIS).
This new 90 credit hour degree program is offered by the Faculty of Arts. It was developed, in collaboration with Extended Education, for working adults who have completed some post-secondary education and would like to complete an undergraduate degree.
If you’re a mid-career adult who never had the chance to start a university degree or to finish one, then the Bachelor of Arts Integrated Studies is for you. Now it’s possible for you to earn an undergraduate degree – the credential that more and more employers require in the workplace. If you want to advance within your profession, make a career change or are interested in a professional or personal challenge, this program is a perfect place to start. And you can do it all while still working full-time. You’ll engage in exciting new learning and the intellectual challenges that lead to professional and personal growth.
