4.1 Minor in Workplace Learning

Continuing Education offers a Minor in Workplace Learning, which helps students develop the knowledge and skills they need to function effectively in a rapidly changing workplace as well as provides them with strategies to facilitate both their own and their colleagues' learning.

The Minor in Workplace Learning is recognized in several University of Calgary Faculties including Arts, Kinesiology and Science. A Minor field of study is composed of 30 units or 400 hours of specified certificate credit.


In order to complete the requirements for a Minor in Workplace Learning, students must complete 400 hours of instruction. This requires completion of:

Business Management Certificate

(a) One of the 300-hour University of Calgary Business and Management Certificate programs (excluding Environmental Management); (b) 60 hours of instruction from an array of courses in the Certificate in Adult Learning; and (c) the "capstone" 40-hour course Learning in the Workplace; or

Certificate in Adult Learning

(a) The 300-hour University of Calgary Certificate in Adult Learning; (b) 60 hours of instruction from the wide range of courses offered in the Management Certificate program; and (c) the "capstone" 40-hour course Learning in the Workplace.

Other Requirements

1. Students must meet undergraduate admission requirements.

2. Successful completion of the 30 units of advanced credit (12 units at the junior level and 18 units at the senior level) for the Minor in Workplace Learning will be recorded with the designation “CR” instead of a grade. Calculation of a GPA will be based on the remaining courses taken to complete the degree.

3. The transfer credits granted can only be applied to the admitting University of Calgary faculty (Arts, Kinesiology, or Science). There is no further transferability to other faculties.

4. The Minor in Workplace Learning will be recognized as transfer courses in your undergraduate program. Most University of Calgary degrees require at least half the courses to be counted toward the degree to be University of Calgary courses, not transfer courses. Please check with your undergraduate academic advisor to determine if there are any limitations on transferring the Minor in Workplace Learning with other transfer credits you have been granted.

5. Students who have completed the 400-hour requirement for the Minor in Workplace Learning may be eligible for undergraduate credit whether or not the Minor is claimed.

6. Continuing Education is responsible for deciding the suitability for advanced credit of certificate programs from other institutions.

7. Students may take regular undergraduate courses prior to completing the Minor in Workplace Learning.
