Что я буду изучать?

Diploma graduates work in challenging and diverse careers supporting the well-being of children, adults and families with disabilities. Work as an autism therapist, as a behavioral specialist in schools, or as a team leader in adult services.

Program Description

Imagine a career where you help others reach their potential. The 16-month diploma will equip you to support the well-being of people with disabilities. You'll also learn how to create inclusive and diverse communities.

After graduation, you can work in a leadership role in many services that support people with disabilities. These include education, not-for-profit agencies, or directly with families.

The program combines classroom learning with practical experience.

If you plan to take the diploma online, note that we do not offer all courses online every term. This means your program could last longer than 16 months.

If you plan to do your practicum outside of Alberta, you must speak to the program coordinator before applying for the program.

Students registered in the traditional full-time Disability Studies Diploma program must write the Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES).
