I am looking into taking my pre-req courses for SLP and came across the post grad cert in Speech and Language Sciences at Brock. I like the idea that you get a certificate but do grad schools look favourably upon it?
I’ve also taken into consideration that i would have to take 5 courses a term for the certificate, which might affect my grades versus if I only take 2-3 pre req courses on my own per term.
Brock is quite far from where I live (Toronto) so I will also have to rent a place.
My alternative option would be to do the CDA program from Durham then take the pre req courses on the side so I can get some clinical experience/have a back up plan if I don’t get into grad school.
If anyone has done the cert, could you share if it’s worth doing or am I better off just taking the courses separately?
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
