Masters Degree Program
*Our schedule is designed to work with the needs of working professionals from Canada and overseas. Each course is delivered over three alternate weekends (one weekend in class followed by one weekend off), making it convenient for people to travel to and from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for study and causing minimal interruption to full or part-time employment. Please note that due to instructor availability some courses may not be offered on weekends. In most cases we can make alternate arrangements.
