Our two-year diploma programs in the arts and business will give you the chance to begin specializing in your academic areas of interest
For most university degree programs, your diploma will allow you to enter directly into your third year of study at the British Columbia university of your choice. (Since the requirements at other universities may differ, our academic counsellors can help you look at your options for universities outside of BC).
All diploma programs require you to complete 60 to 61 credits. If you have already completed some courses at another institution, you may transfer up to 30 credits toward our diploma programs. Your final three courses (9 credits) must be completed here at Coquitlam College.
Two-year diploma programs (60 – 61 credits) will provide you with a broad education, with special emphasis in humanities and the social sciences. You may complete a general studies diploma, or you may choose to specialize in economics or mathematics.

All students working towards an Arts Diploma must complete core requirements in five subject areas. Each specific Arts Diploma also has additional course requirements. Any remaining courses may be chosen from any subject area.
