UBC Micro-certificate

  • Online
  • $3,680 to $4,080

There are no shortcuts in anti-racism work. Only by committing daily to re-designing systems to include the perspectives and voices of historically marginalized and oppressed communities can individuals and organizations reach our society’s unrealized potentials.

The UBC Micro-certificate in Anti-Racism expands your understanding of identity, power and white privilege in the workplace and in our communities, to envision a future liberated from oppressive structures. The courses center racialized voices, and challenges participants to rethink how to meaningfully and tangibly engage in anti-racist and anti-oppression practices and strategies within organizational settings, and beyond.

  • Format: 100% online
  • Duration: A minimum of five courses (three anti-racism and two diversity and inclusion elective courses) for a total of 125 hours of course work, to be completed within two years
  • Cost: Approximately $3,680 to $4,080 for the program, including a non-refundable application fee
  • Apply anytime
