Off-Campus Courses

What is an Extension Centre course?

Each year Saint Mary's University offers credit courses for undergraduate degree and certificate programs in a number of off-campus Extension Centres. These centres are located throughout Halifax and Dartmouth. They are in your community waiting to serve your learning needs. We are supplying new learning initiatives in your neighbourhood through community resources such as libraries, high schools, colleges and community outreach centres.
