Family Violence Issues Certificate Program

The FVI Certificate is granted upon completion of eight (3 credit hour) courses related to the study of family violence with a minimum grade of C in each course. The program is offered by the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Centre for Family Violence Research at UNB, but the courses listed below are offered through various departments and faculties. 

The FVI Certificate includes three different groupings of courses based on the proportion of material covered in the course that is directly relevant to issues of family violence: core courses (all material considered relevant); intensive courses (at least 60% of the material considered relevant); and supplementary courses (at least 30% of the material considered relevant). While students will choose a mix of core, intensive and supplementary courses, it is required that they choose a minimum of 3 core courses, and a maximum of 3 intensive courses, along with 2 supplementary courses. 

Students interested in being admitted into the Family Violence Issues Certificate Program make an application to the Director of the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Centre for Family Violence Research. Admittance is based on the student's academic performance and any related employment or volunteer experiences. 

Students completing the FVI Certificate are able to count those courses taken in conjunction with a Minor, Major, Honours, Double Major, or Joint Honours program towards the FVI requirements. 

**Not all these courses will be offered in any given academic year**
