Graduate Diplomas

Graduate Diplomas are based on Graduate Degree Level Expectations (see Appendix 1 of the Quality Assurance Framework) and will prepare students for employment requiring sound judgment, personal responsibility and individual initiative, in complex and unpredictable professional environments. The typical duration is one to four semesters at the Master’s level and one to six semesters at the doctoral level. Requirements are integrated throughout the program, and may include an experiential learning component (or course); programs normally consist of four to six graduate courses.
