Carleton’s Enrichment Mini-Courses Program

The Enrichment Mini-Courses Program (EMCP) is a unique event that allows students from grades 8 to 11 in Eastern Ontario and Secondary II to V in Western Quebec to explore a field of study in a university or college setting. Students acquire the knowledge and skills that will help them achieve academic success and promote their interest in pursuing post-secondary studies.

The Enrichment Mini-Courses Program (EMCP) is a school board initiative offered annually by Carleton University, the University of Ottawa, La Cité and Saint Paul University. The goals of the EMCP program are to:

  • foster the intellectual, social and personal growth of students through the discovery or exploration of a discipline or field of study;
  • encourage students to pursue post-secondary education; and
  • introduce students to the academic programs and resources offered by the region’s post-secondary institutions.

In 2019, Carleton University Offered 45 mini-courses and hosted approximately 1,000 students on campus for the EMCP program.
