My OWN McMaster Pathway Benefits


Today’s job market is competitive. Employers are in pursuit of professionals who possess the right combination of practical training and advanced analytical skills.  

With My OWN McMaster’s unique pathway, you don’t have to put your career on hold to build up your résumé and gain the skills employers are seeking.  My OWN McMaster gives you access to a diploma program specific to your career choice teamed with the analytical and critical thinking skills of an undergraduate degree in the humanities or social sciences—all in one streamlined pathway.

OWN your career
Gain the multifaceted educational experience that top employers want. A diploma gives you specialized professional skills and an undergraduate degree further develops your research, communication and critical thinking abilities.

OWN your schedule

MyOWNMac allows you to complete a part time degree through entirely online, weekend, or evening classes.*  This means you can work full time and still pursue your education. 

OWN your education

No second application process is required to transition from diploma studies at CCE to degree studies in the Faculty of Humanities or Faculty of Social Sciences.  Once you apply to the My OWN McMaster pathway and are accepted, you are conditionally accepted into degree studies as well. 

* MCE and undergraduate courses are offered in a variety of formats. Some courses may include daytime live sessions. Review course outlines and schedules for details prior to registering.
