Dual Credit Program students attend Mohawk College for one half of their day and their home school for the other half; they are part-time Mohawk students with all the rights and privileges of any other part-time Mohawk student. We encourage applications from students unsure if they are ready for college, or those who consider college their post-secondary pathway but may be at-risk of not graduating high school.

Society, Technology and Social Issues
Examine a wide variety of technologies that have influenced our society significantly. Analyze the contribution these technologies make to society, the associated ethical dilemmas and critique their value to the individual and to society.
This course is an in-depth look at popular culture (TV, ads, music, clothing, etc.) and its impact on society. We begin with a critical analysis of the media and ask who controls it, the consumers, the producers or both? We look at theorists who have examined the power structure of society and ask whether representations in the media reflect society’s values. We discuss the North American culture of consuming products and how this effects the world. Finally, we examine resistance, if it’s possible, and can consumers “rise up” and take their culture back.
Contemporary Health Issues (Healthcare Focus Bridge)
In this course, students will examine issues in contemporary health care in Canada and around the world. Students will develop their skills in writing, group work, presentations, and critical analysis while gaining a deeper understanding of the factors that influence health and wellness.
