Program Description:

Diploma programs are open to students in any relevant graduate program or to those who have a general interest in graduate-level work. For diplomas that are part of a graduate degree (concurrent), please contact the relevant graduate program office. For graduate diplomas that can be pursued on their own (stand-alone, direct entry), applications are submitted online. The Graduate Diploma in Post-Secondary Education: Community, Culture and Policy is designed for students with an interest in the study of universities, colleges, adult and community-based education to deepen their knowledge of and research expertise in these areas. The diploma can be taken concurrently with the Master's (MEd) or Doctoral (PhD) degrees or as a stand-alone non-degree diploma. Gain analytical and practical insights into your field of study with a graduate diploma York University is committed to enhancing graduate studies by providing opportunities for specialized interdisciplinary study through distinctive diploma offerings. Benefits of a diploma A graduate diploma denotes specialization in an area, gained through intensive graduate-level study. It supplements an already established area of study and adds value to a graduate degree. Diploma types Diploma programs are open to students in any relevant graduate program or to those who have a general interest in graduate-level work. For example, the Democratic Administration diploma is open to students pursuing a degree in Environmental Studies, Law, Sociology, Administrative Studies or Political Science. Concurrent Graduate Diploma programs Allow a student currently enrolled in a master's or doctoral degree program to pursue an in-depth exploration of one aspect of their field. For example, a student working towards an MA in Art History may take the Diploma in Curatorial Studies in Visual Culture. This diploma, designed for those interested in a curatorial career, includes courses and apprenticeships. Stand-alone, direct-entry Graduate Diploma programs Provide an opportunity for graduate-level study of theory and research to students who are not interested in pursuing a full graduate degree. This could include professionals, school administrators, people working in community organizations, cultural institutions or advocacy groups, or anyone who does not have the time or interest in a traditional graduate program. Some students who take the stand-alone diploma already have a graduate degree and use their diploma to augment a particular area of interest. Requirements & how to apply Diplomas are offered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Admission to a diploma program is subject to the approval of each diploma's advisory committee and Diploma Coordinator. For diplomas that are part of a graduate degree: - you must first be admitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies as a candidate for a master's or doctoral degree in one of the participating graduate programs. - you should register in the diploma of your choice within the first year of your program, and - you must take the appropriate courses along with the other requirements for your master's or doctoral program. If you successfully complete both a degree and a diploma, the diploma will be noted on your transcript and awarded at convocation. Graduate diplomas that can be pursued on their own OR in combination with a graduate degree: - admission usually requires at least an undergraduate degree (though most applicants have already achieved a graduate degree) with a minimum "B" average. - admission requirements are generally similar to a degree but your letter of interest must specifically address issues in the diploma's field of study. - applications are submitted online
