Graduate Studies offering new part-time programs

The University of Lethbridge's School of Graduate Studies is making it easier for students to access their programs, introducing part-time studies in the Master of Arts and Master of Science programs for the Fall 2009 semester.

Part-time studies are being developed to create greater flexibility to allow students to enter an M.A. or M.Sc. program whose circumstances do not allow for full-time studies.

Part-time studies will include a 48-month program, allowing part-time students to complete all required course work in the first 24 months, with subsequent months committed to continued research and production of the thesis.

In keeping with the commitment of the M.A. and M.Sc. programs to offer opportunities for teaching and supervisory experience, part-time students will be granted teaching assistantships for two semesters.

Admission requirements are the same for part-time and full-time studies. For a listing of programs available and the research currently being conducted, visit:
