Evening & Weekend-scheduled Classes for Today's Working Professional

Established in 1967, the University of Lethbridge (uLethbridge) is a publicly-funded, comprehensive, academic research institution and proud member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC). To-date, uLethbridge as an institutional whole, offers 150+ undergraduate-level (Bachelors degree and post-secondary certificates) and 75+ graduate-level (Masters, PhD, and Graduate Certificate/Diploma) programs spanning across six established Faculties/Schools: Arts & Science, Education, Fine Arts, Health Sciences, the Dhillon School of Business, and Graduate Studies.
 
uLethbridge’s Calgary Campus is located in the City of Calgary (~200km northwest from the City of Lethbridge, where the main Lethbridge Campus is headquartered) to which it has been serving both local students as well as the academic community since its inception in 1996. In January 2011, the campus relocated from its original destination at SAIT and subsequently “set-up-shop” inside of its current location in downtown Calgary within Bow Valley College - just steps from the City Hall C-Train platforms - the latter of whom we share classroom space with as a collaborative partner within the Campus Alberta South learning consortium. Our small face-to-face class sizes (ranging anywhere from between 25-59 students per course section; average of 40) and supportive learning environments make it an ideal place for individuals whose respective learning styles thrive in more intimate classroom settings.

      In contrast with the Lethbridge Campus (a traditional varsity university) which schedules all of their academic programming and courses either during the mornings or in the afternoons during the weekdays, multiple times a week, the Calgary Campus on the other hand primarily schedules all of its own learning deliverables during weeknights and Saturdays for a solid 3 or 4-hour block, once-per-week, per course (under normal circumstances) as our location was exclusively designed to cater to working adults who possess their own daytime employment (avg. age range of 27-32).

      Lecture sessions for Calgary-based UNDERGRADUATE courses will be typically instructed in the traditional face-to-face/F2F format and will normally run from:

      • All undergrad courses will typically entail 36 total hours of instructional time, per course, per semester (not including final exams)

       

      MON - FRI eve Timeslot SAT Timeslot SUN
      6:00pm - 9:00pm/10:00pm (MST)
      • 9:00am - 12:00pm/1:00pm (for morning classes); OR
      • 1:00pm - 4:00pm/5:00pm (for afternoon classes)
      NONE

      Confirmed course delivery times (and associated instructional delivery modalities) - which will vary by individual course and academic term - will always be displayed on the university's online, public-access Timetable/Dynamic Schedule, once the finalized roster for a given semester has been published.

      It should be noted that no undergraduate program with uLethbridge (any campus or discipline) has fixed Full-time (FT) or Part-time (PT) participation statuses on their own as the onus of course registration is the sole responsibility of the admitted student for all semesters of study (admission to graduation).

      The completion pacing is entirely within the undergraduate student’s control from start-to-finish in that they are given the freedom to register in as many or in as few courses as they wish with each passing term, depending on how heavy or how light they wish to make their respective work loads on-top of any other obligations that they may also be balancing in addition to school (e.g. work, family, volunteer initiatives, all of the above, etc.):

      • FT = Between 3-5 courses per major semester (non-negotiable for international students)
        • No undergraduate student is obligated or expected to register themselves into 5 courses a semester, especially if such an option is neither feasible nor realistic with respect to their individual (non-school) scheduling needs during a given semester.
      • PT = 1 or 2 courses per major semester
      • "Major semester" = the Fall term (Sept-Dec) or the Spring term (Jan-Apr)
        • Course registration during the summer months (May-Aug) is entirely optional in that there are no negative administrative or financial consequences, should an undergraduate student decide to register in zero summer courses at any point in their studies
      • Not all students will be expected to complete the exact same number or types of courses as each other
      • Not all students will want to complete their program coursework at the same speed/pace as another
      • Not all courses are offered every semester (some are offered only once-a-year)

      In contrast with undergraduate courses, it should be noted that GRADUATE courses will follow significantly different class scheduling times:

      MSc(Mgt)

      (Non-Thesis Coursework)

      GCHSM/MHSM

      (F2F Sessions | Only 4, per course, per semester)

      • MON - FRI mornings (starting as early as 9:00am (MST))
      • MON - FRI afternoons (starting as late as 3:00pm (MST))
      • Class start times and lengths will vary by individual course
      • There will be no SUN scheduled classes
      • 4:00pm - 9:00pm (MST) for FRI scheduled classes
      • 10:00am - 3:00pm (MST) for SAT scheduled classes
      • Remainder of classes will be delivered online in-between F2F sessions
      • There will be no SUN - THURS scheduled F2F classes

      **IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to our small size, the Calgary Campus currently does not possess any of its own institutionally-managed housing (onsite or offsite) services for admitted students, at this time. As a result, all inbound out-of-city/out-of-country students who are in need of living accommodations within the City of Calgary while they pursue their academic studies with uLethbridge, will be responsible for sourcing and coordinating their own living arrangements via researching local listing websites, such as (but not limited to):

        The University of Lethbridge, all campuses, is a traditional brick-and-mortar institution, meaning that a significant majority of its academic program courses are normally delivered in-person. Any online-delivered learning will be delegated to certain courses but not necessarily all of them. Confirmed instructional delivery modalities (e.g. online, face-to-face in Calgary, face-to-face in Lethbridge, or blended) will vary between individual courses and academic terms and can always be subject to change in the days leading up to and including the start of classes for a given term. Such information can be readily found on the university’s online, public-access Timetable/Dynamic Schedule.
