Brock/Colleges Articulation Agreements Go to top of document
Co-ordinated between the Department of Community Health Sciences and a related department at another post-secondary institution, articulation agreements offer students an opportunity to combine practical experience with theoretical knowledge, with courses taken at both Brock University and an Ontario college. Upon successful completion of both programs, students receive a BA (Pass) Community Health and a diploma from the corresponding college. Gaining both a degree and diploma would typically involve attending college after earning a university degree, or vice versa, however, the Brock articulation agreements combine practical and theoretical learning in a single integrated package that may be completed in four years.
