The Double DEC program at John Abbott offers students the possibility to take both of the principle pre-university programs at the same time. This enables a student who is willing to make a three-year commitment to have virtually all of their options open for university. The Double DEC student takes the same courses as the regular Science and the regular Social Science student.
COMMENTS FROM OUR STUDENTS:
“Going from high school to CEGEP can be rough if you are not too sure about the future. The Double DEC offers a wide variety of courses for those with a thirst for knowledge.”
“The Double DEC is great if your are not sure what you want to pursue right now and if you would like to take some time to make a smart decision rather than rush into an uncertain one. The multitude of options allows you to explore many fields to see what you are interested in.”
“Previously enrolled in Social Science only, I made the decision to switch into the Double DEC because I believed it would give me more options in terms of career choices. Also, a lighter course load per semester would allow me to focus fully on each class. Now I can confirm this… No regrets!”
“Unsure about you future? Enjoy intellectual intrigue? Love a challenge? Then the Double DEC is for you. It offers three years of discovering new knowledge in every possible field of science and social science, bonding with a group of students with the same interests, and graduating with the possibility of going anywhere and doing anything.”
