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. More This diploma trains voice specialists to be effective teachers and to have a solid practical grounding in the functions of an acting/movement/voice ensemble. The voice training includes voice science, anatomy and physiology, language, speech sounds, phonetics, dialect, coaching techniques and traditional and non-traditional approaches to voice. Only applicants with significant prior teaching experience will be considered for a teaching diploma program. Qualified students in the acting or directing streams can apply for the unique Graduate Diploma in Voice Teaching. It can be undertaken on its own or in combination with a graduate degree. Voice teacher trainees will complete the full acting or directing program. In addition, their course of study will include: - weekly voice teachers’ seminar - voice teaching and coaching assignments with productions on and off campus - assistant teaching at the National Voice Intensive - a major voice training research paper 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
