Not everyone coming into college knows exactly what they want to study or what career they might want to pursue. Here at Fleming, we stand out among other colleges in offering a common first semester in select areas to help you find the program that is the right fit for you.
Core diploma programs in the School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences and the School of Justice and Community Development share a common first semester, while some diploma programs in the School of Business and Information Technology and the School of Health and Wellness share a common first year.
All students in these programs take the same foundational courses in the first semester (or year) of study. This allows you the freedom to explore various careers and obtain a multidisciplinary perspective – all while you acquire a strong base of knowledge and fundamental skills that are applicable across related fields of study.
Once you start, you may find that another program is more suited to your goals and interests. You can transfer into your preferred program in semester two, depending on enrolment capacity and academic requirements.
Common first semester is available within the following Schools/programs:
At the Graduate Certificate level, our GIS programs share a common first semester.
