The Human Resources and Development Management pathway is aimed at those who are interested in management in the public, state or NGO sectors in developing, transitional or newly-industrialised countries. This is primarily a public sector management, not a business management, programme, although some of the themes covered are relevant to both sectors. The pathway encourages students to consider and analyse how a changing global environment has shaped the ways in which work is organized and managed and how ideas about leadership and management may be applied differently across cultures and contexts.

The pathway explores the relationship between hard and soft approaches to the analysis and practice of management, for example between human resources management and human resource development, between leadership and management and between vertical bureaucracy and decentralised collaborative management. The pathway considers the interaction between organizational structure, culture, power and motivation in public administration and in international organizations.

Who is the programme for?

The programme is designed for officials, policy analysts and researchers concerned with economic and social development. They may work in central or local government, public enterprises, non-governmental organisations, and research or training organisations. The programme is also appropriate for those who are hoping to enter a career in the field of development.

*PLEASE NOTE: This course is pending approval*

The Graduate Diploma in Mining Law, Finance, and Sustainability will provide complementary interdisciplinary training to students whose backgrounds and previous academic disciplines are in fields other than Law. Our goal is to provide mining professionals (eg geologists, geophysicists, engineers), business professionals (eg those in finance or human resources), public servants, indigenous leaders, and advocates working with non-governmental organizations with knowledge of the key legal frameworks that govern the extractive industries in Canada and abroad. This will help them to understand issues in areas like environmental regulation, the rights of indigenous peoples, and applicable corporate finance provisions.

Part-time students can complete the program in either three or four terms. As the Faculty of Law does not offer Summer courses, students would be limited to taking courses in the Fall and Winter. Part-time students will not be charged tuition during the Summer Term.

The Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) MSc was established in 1992 with the Graduate Diploma (GDip)
program being introduced more recently in 2010. Both the MSc and GDip programs provide advanced training
in food safety and quality related disciplines.

Everybody eats! Why not be part of the solution for a growing worldwide demand for quality food that is safely produced, safely delivered, and safely prepared? Our programs provide advanced, career-oriented education and training for university graduates who are interested in designing, implementing and monitoring food quality and safety programs. Our graduates work in private and public sector careers in Canada and abroad to meet the goal of safe and nutritious food for all.

Why Guelph?

The University of Guelph has a worldwide reputation for its excellence in many aspects of agriculture and biological sciences. Our graduate programs in food safety and quality assurance are within the Department of Food Science of the Ontario Agricultural College and so our students “rub shoulders” with internationally-recognized faculty.

About the program

There are two graduate programs in food safety and quality assurance. The MSc is comprised of a selection of on-line courses such as Principles of Food Science, Food Safety Systems, Quality Management, Food Law and Policy, and Safety of Foods of Animal Origin. The student must also take a Seminar course and electives selected from a wide range of supporting disciplines. The program includes an applied research project which generally takes two semesters. The project may be designed by the student and arise from previous work experience, or may be part of an established project already being undertaken by a faculty member in the Department of Food Science.

There is no thesis requirement, but the project must be suitable for presentation at a conference or for publication in a scientific journal. The MSc is normally completed in 3 semesters. For students who are unable to physically attend the University of Guelph, we offer an innovative Graduate Diploma that consists of the five previouslymentioned on-line courses. The Diploma program does not have a research requirement and can be completed in 2 semesters.

Course detail

- Description -

The Graduate Diploma can be taken either as a self-contained programme, or as a bridge to an MA in Ancient History, Classical Art & Archaeology, Classics or Late Antique & Byzantine Studies.

You can take modules from all three years of our undergraduate (BA) programmes. You are limited to 30 credits at Levels 4 and 5, the remaining credits coming from Level 6 modules (unless you are planning to acquire Greek and/or Latin languages) to a total of 120 credits. There is a large choice of BA modules available, ranging over Greek and Roman Literature, Greek and Roman History, Classical Art and Archaeology and Late Antique and Byzantine Studies.

We also offer Greek and Latin language at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. If you have a particular interest in acquiring or developing your knowledge of these languages then you will be taught with our MA students and take these modules at Level 7. These are the only modules taken at Level 7 by GDip students. All other teaching is shared with our undergraduate students (Levels 4, 5, 6) except that you will be assessed by coursework essays during which you will receive individual tutorial advice. You can also choose whether you wish to write a dissertation (10,000 words) on a classical topic upon which you receive close supervision. The dissertation is an optional component of the programme.

- Course purpose -

The Diploma is appropriate for you if you are a graduate in a subject not closely related to Ancient History or Classics; it provides a bridge to further study at MA level or beyond, or you can take it as a self-contained programme.

- Course format and assessment -

Modules are largely assessed by coursework but some, such as languages, have in-class tests and end-of-year examinations.
