Specialized Online Courses

In the 2017-18 calendar year, the Centre will conduct several specialized online courses throughout the year on the basis of annual cycles. The courses can either be taken as stand-alone independent courses, or as part of our Professional Development Diploma in Human Rights and Forced Displacement or as part of the Professional Development Diploma in Sustainable Development and Human Rights. Participants will receive certificates from the Centre upon successful completion of the courses. Each of these courses can also be taken for 2 graduate academic credits offered by UPEACE.
