Program delivery

Although students are allowed to choose any Leadership Studies elective courses, we've provided 2 course schedules for you which allows you to focus your course work in an area of your choosing such as Educational Administration and Leadership or Adult Education & Community Engagement. By following the scheduled courses you'll enter into the program of your choice in September and graduate 2 years later. Contact our graduate advisor to select the program that meets your interests and goals.

Our programs feature a high level of in-class discussion, social interaction with peers and community or school leaders and other knowledgeable and approachable instructors. Courses are scheduled during the day, evenings, and at weekends. We have some online courses, but currently the programs are primarily face-to-face.

The program has higher English language proficiency requirements than the Faculty of Graduate Studies, due to seminar-style classes. International applicants must submit English language proficiency results within two weeks of applying.
