At Seneca, we understand that people in and around the Greater Toronto Area lead busy lives. Kids, a partner, a job or multiple jobs, friends, activities – and those are just some of the things on a long list that demand attention and take up precious hours out of your day. Finding extra time to dedicate to upgrading your skills or changing careers by going back to school can be a very real challenge. We get it. And we want to make it as easy as possible for you to gain the knowledge and skills you need to get where you want to be. The programming provided at Seneca can be tailored to meet your specific needs, so you, too, can say: Challenge Accepted.
With campuses in the Greater Toronto Area and Peterborough and education partners around the world, Seneca’s Faculty of Continuing Education & Training offers honours bachelor degrees, diplomas, certificates, graduate certificates and corporate training in a broad range of programs. Classes can be taken at several locations and online, or through a flexible hybrid option, and they are available early mornings, evenings and on weekends.
The bachelor degree programs available in a flexible, part-time format include Interdisciplinary Studies, International Accounting and Finance, and Child Development.
Seneca also recently introduced a graduate certificate in Cybersecurity and Threat Management to respond to the growing demand for trained professionals in the field. The curriculum for the program was developed in collaboration with Toronto Finance International, which represents the interests of Toronto’s financial sector. Cannabis is another growing industry in Canada and to meet the need for qualified and skilled workers, Seneca offers a certificate in Cannabis Industry Studies. A partnership with Aleafia Health’s FoliEdge Academy to develop accredited cannabis courses and certifications in various formats, including online self-study courses, provides more options for students.
Seneca Downtown, a new location for professional and graduate education in Toronto’s financial district, was developed with the aim of providing greater flexibility and accessibility for busy working professionals.
The downtown space at Bay and Wellington streets provides programming as part of the new Centre for Graduate & Professional Studies, bringing together more than 40 careerfocused graduate certificate programs at Seneca. This includes industryrecognized certification courses and credits for licences and designations, as well as customized options for professional development.
“Seneca has a wide range of program choices for postsecondary graduates and also working professionals. The Centre for Graduate & Professional Studies brings it all together under one umbrella, so you can easily identify what best suits your needs,” said Kiley Bolton, Director of the Centre for Graduate & Professional Studies.
“It reinforces Seneca’s leadership position in graduate programming. Plus, Seneca Downtown adds a new dimension to what we can offer students from the perspective of flexibility and access.”
