Race Relations

Available at: Online part-time


As technology brings the peoples of the world closer together and political barriers tumble, racial discrimination, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance continue to ravage our societies. Even globalization and Canadian multiculturalism carries risks that can lead to exclusion and increased inequality, very often along racial and ethnic lines. “isms” – sexism, ageism, anti- Semitism, racism, and so forth – represent one of the most destructive aspects of human social behaviour.

This innovative on-line program is a direct response to the learning needs identified by a broad range of representatives from various human services and justice agencies who recognize that racial inequity and negative stereotyping such as racial profiling is the most significant social problem of our day. The five-course certificate in Race Relations will give the learner measures of prevention and education aimed at the eradication of racism, racial discrimination and related intolerance. Learners will examine diversity issues on a national and international level, critical differences in cross-cultural communication, and sources, causes, forms and contemporary manifestations in this area.

To successfully complete this program, participants must complete five (5) compulsory courses.

    As a graduate of the CDA program I can honestly say, it has been one of the most rewarding educational endeavors I have ever pursued. Coming from a University background I was not sure what to expect in college and assumed it would be another one of those “you are just another number, not an individual” scenarios. I am completely shocked by the lasting friendships I have made with everyone in the program and the relationships I have created with the professors. I have always had a passion for the field of Speech Therapy, and the CDA program has taken my passion for this field to a new level. I learned more in one year than I could have ever taken away from my 5 years in University, and have been given the ability to network with professionals in the field during my 2 clinical placements. Communicative Disorders Assistants are slowly starting to have a new place in the world of rehabilitation as we move forward, and the CDA Program at St. Lawrence College prepares you above and beyond anything you could possibly expect. I remember applying for jobs after finishing University, before taking this program and thinking “ya I got this in the bag!”…until the interview, when I realized how little University had prepared me for a career. After completing the CDA program I go into interviews confident in my abilities because of the hands on, friendly and heartwarming experiences I have had the opportunity to experience in the CDA program.
