Dual Credit

We currently offer two Dual Credit Courses at JCS.

Dual Credit Psychology (Psychology for Everyday Life – Psych 203)

Get a jump start on post-secondary learning while in high school and with the support of a JCS teacher in this dual credit opportunity in first semester.  This course is intended for CBE students attending JCS currently in  Grade 11 or 12, are intending to study at a post-secondary institution, have strong proficiency in ELA (-1 or -2 minimum 70%) and are committed to the challenges of post-secondary learning.  Most of this class will be delivered online via D2L and takes place in a JCS classroom.  For this course, students are expected to attend lectures at U of C every other Wednesday evening. Transportation to and from the University of Calgary is the responsibility of the student.  Psychology 203 may be used to fill a number of University of Calgary program requirements as an elective, though it cannot be used as part of a Psychology major.

Dual Credit Sociology (Introduction to Sociology – Soci 201)

This dual credit opportunity is for our grade 11 or 12 students to earn both high school and post-secondary credits if successful. Sociologists, like other social scientists, are interested in the scientific study of human behavior. This course provides an introduction to the sociological perspective and is organized around five broad questions:

  • What is “sociology”?
  • What kinds of explanations of social behavior make the most sense to sociologists?
  • What do sociologists do?
  • What are some of the substantive topics studied by sociologists?
  • What can you do with sociological insight?

We will explore these questions in a variety of ways including lectures, class discussions, course readings, written assignments, guest speakers, and multi-media experiences!  Dual Credit Sociology will be delivered in second semester on the JCS campus.

​​​Dual Credit at the CBE

As a CBE student, you may choose to take a dual credit program as part of your high school learning plan. Dual credit programs allow you to:

  • Study in an area of passion and interest
  • Get a jump start on post-secondary learning.
  • Earn high school and post-secondary credits (transferable).
  • Build confidence and develop skills that will support a successful post-secondary transition.
  • Experience a post-secondary learning environment and learn about ongoing opportunities.
  • Reduce first-year course load and the time required to complete a program.

As a dual credit student, you would be concurrently enrolled in both a post-secondary institution and your high school​. You would earn credits towards both a high school diploma and a post-secondary degree or diploma.


Application packages and program details will be posted on:
