DescriptionImagine 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. Classes are generally scheduled between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday to Friday.

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. Contact 403-410-1650 to speak to the program coordinator. Students registered in the traditional full-time Disability Studies Diploma program must write the Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES).
