The Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies offers master’s degrees comprised of elements from other RRU programs, enabling us to provide an education shaped by your unique aspirations. Students benefit greatly from an individualized education that offers programs pursuant to their unique interests and schedules, while employers are attracted to candidates capable of meeting the specific demands of the professional world. That’s how everyone wins. That’s why Royal Roads graduate students are always in demand.

Our System

This graduate degree program is offered in 2 formats: online or a blended delivery that combines online coursework with one on-campus residency. And since we’re committed to providing individualized education, all of our students work closely with our program head to develop individual academic plans tailored to their specific needs. Drawing from two or more areas of study, this unique system enables Royal Roads graduate students to pursue an interdisciplinary course of study that combines personal passion and professional interest.

*This is not an independent studies or cohort model program. Courses are not self-paced and their start and end dates can vary.

Our Students

Royal Roads University draws more than just master’s students seeking an active role in the design of their educational experience. It also attracts driven, focused individuals who want more from their careers and who share a common desire to apply their education meaningfully throughout their organizations and communities. Most of our graduate students are already working professionals. That’s why we’re committed to providing a program that integrates professional experience with a practical education.

Commitment

Requiring 2 to 2.5 years of study, this degree program provides flexible scheduling options that combine online MA degree learning with one optional short term on-campus residency.

*Each online course can require up to 20 hours of study per week. Working professionals are encouraged to take this into consideration when developing a program of study in the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program.

Delivery Model

This unique program allows each student to work directly with faculty to create an individualized schedule of study that draws together courses of personal and professional interest from other masters and graduate certificate programs at Royal Roads University. Students select no more than 50 per cent of their courses from any one program to assure interdisciplinary breadth of study. Individuals may do one on-campus residency in another masters program, or they may complete their degree completely online.

Online Courses
Online courses are not independent studies courses; they have deadlines for assignments and, more importantly, require posting deadlines to foster the fruitful exchange of ideas that make virtual communities thrive. In building your schedule of study, working professionals should consider taking no more than one online course at a time as each course can require up to 20 hours of work per week.

On-Campus Residencies
Students who elect to do a residency work on two or three courses simultaneously in a blended model of delivery. Residencies begin with a pre-residency online, followed by two to three weeks of intensive on-campus coursework and subsequently, several weeks of post-residency work. While the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program recommends a residency in another masters program during the course of studies, residency options demand unimpeded time on-campus.

The MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program is driven by a student’s interdisciplinary research and career interests. A prospective student’s application needs to provide a rationale for the proposed combination of courses and academic fields of study.

Whereas most graduate interdisciplinary degrees draw from traditional, single disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology, ecology, etc.), Royal Roads’ MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program offers a unique take on interdisciplinarity. This program draws not from single disciplines but from multidisciplinary academic program areas (e.g., humanitarian studies, environmental education and communication, leadership, etc.); in addition, the program focuses on applied research instrumental to working professionals’ career goals.

Individualized Schedule of Study

There are three paths through the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies degree:
Coursework - A student completes 36 credit hours of on campus or online courses
-6 credits in two required courses in interdisciplinary theory and methods
-30 credits accumulated by completing courses in MA or graduate certificate programs

Major Project - A student completes 36 credit hours of on campus or online courses
-6 credits in two required courses in interdisciplinary theory and methods
-18 credits accumulated by completing courses in MA or graduate certificate programs
-12 credits dedicated to a major project usually aligned with a student’s professional field

Thesis - A student completes 36 credit hours of on campus or online courses
-6 credits of required courses in interdisciplinary theory and methods
-18 credits accumulated by completing courses in MA or graduate certificate programs
-12 credits dedicated to a master’s thesis

Where needed, a student may take advantage of a directed study course to further familiarity with scholarship in a particular area of study.

Prospective students must contact the College of Interdisciplinary Studies to discuss development of their unique program schedules.

The MBA in Executive Management at Royal Roads University is designed for working professionals, by working professionals. Read more
The MBA in Executive Management at Royal Roads University is designed for working professionals, by working professionals. We’ve used our experience in the industry to create a program that gives you the solid foundation required of today’s business leaders, as well as the opportunity to put your learning to work through hands-on practice. No matter what your career aspirations are, you’ll be able to use the tools and techniques found in your program to move your organization forward.

Who It's For

Experienced managers and business leaders who are looking for versatility and customization of their MBA experience. The program builds on each student’s current knowledge and experience to develop the strategic skills business growth depends upon, and provides a broad understanding of critical issues in management leadership. It also allows students to select electives in sustainability, innovation or coaching for an individualized MBA experience that aligns with their career goals.

The Royal Roads University Learning Model

At Royal Roads University, we use a cohort learning model for many of our programs, including the MBA. Our unique learning model requires you to work with your team, sharing personal experiences and diverse perspectives to develop unique solutions to projects and challenges. Working together ensures that everyone contributes to and benefits from the program, and the connections you create through our cohort environment form a powerful network of support you can turn to during your program and after graduation.

An Investment in Education

The MBA program at Royal Roads University is challenging and requires compromises between you and your family, friends, and employers. Your cohort depends on you to contribute and participate in group projects and assignments, and you’ll need to allocate enough time to manage your assigned readings and individual tasks. It’s important to discuss these requirements with the important people in your life, so you can plan out mutually acceptable arrangements before you start your program. The program is challenging, but the experience is invaluable.

Team-Based Learning

Your program will include students from across Canada as well as internationally; typically about 40 years old with 15 or more years of professional experience. One of the biggest benefits of this mixture of personal and professional experience is the opportunities created by developing your professional network. You can expand your network around the globe, finding access to resources outside of what your competition can discover. And that’s a great way to build your business and professional exposure.

Organizational Management Project

The Organizational Management Project (OMP) is the major integrative learning activity of the MBA Program, and offers a rich learning opportunity through the application of theory to a real-world situation. By applying theory to a real world-situation, completion of the OMP enhances the skills of the learner and provides a valuable contribution to the client or host organization.

More specifically, in the OMP, learners will examine a management problem, conduct academic and best case research, analyze options, and provide recommendations and a high-level implementation plan in a final report for the client or host organization. The management problem to be researched and analyzed is identified in collaboration with an organization. MBA learners may choose to conduct their OMP with an external organization, or it can be conducted within a learner’s own workplace provided the project is not related to the learner’s own position and does not involve his/her direct reports. The MBA Program Office will also work with learners to identify potential projects with corporate or not-for-profit organizations that have indicated their interest in being involved with our program in this capacity.

INTRODUCTION

Join the next generation of senior civil and structural engineering experts. Embrace a well paid, intensive yet enjoyable career by taking this comprehensive and practical course. It is delivered over 24 months by live distance learning and presented by some of the leading civil and structural engineering instructors in the world today.

Civil and structural engineering encompasses a range of disciplines, including road, rail and drainage systems, dams, harbours, bridges, buildings and other structures. Civil and structural designers and drafters plan, design, develop and manage construction and repair projects.

This qualification develops your skills and knowledge in the design and drafting of engineering plans to recognised standards. You will learn about different areas of civil engineering, including construction, project management, design and testing. You will also learn about the design and drafting of concrete, steelwork, roads and pipes, as well as hydrology, stormwater drainage and foundations.

While it is essential that those who work in the supervisory or management levels of this discipline have a firm understanding of drafting and planning principles, this qualification goes much further. To be effective on the job, you will need to know how to apply knowledge of fundamental civil and structural engineering concepts, including geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, engineering maths, and properties of materials. Throughout the program this subject matter will be placed into the context of engineering management. Our aim is to ensure that you are an effective, knowledgeable and skilled supervisor or manager, someone who can work beyond a “plan and design” brief to ensure that a project is delivered effectively.
This qualification aims to provide theoretical and practical education and training such that graduates may gain employment at the engineering associate (“paraprofessional”) level within the building and construction industry.

There are eight threads in the course to give you maximum, practical coverage. These threads comprise environmental issues, engineering technologies, drawing, 2D and 3D CAD design, building materials, civil and structural sub-disciplines (roads, steel, concrete, pavement, drainage, soil, water supply, sewerage), construction sites and engineering management.

This program avoids too much emphasis on theory. This is rarely needed in the real world of industry where time is short and immediate results, with hard-hitting and useful know-how, are required as a minimal requirement. The instructors presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers from industry who have done the hard yards and worked in the civil and structural areas. The format of presentation — live, interactive distance learning with the use of remote learning technologies — means that you can hit the ground running and be of immediate benefit to your company or future employer.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Anyone who wants to gain a solid working knowledge of the key elements of civil and structural engineering that can be applied at the supervisory and paraprofessional level. See “Entrance Requirements”

This program is particularly well suited to students for who on-campus attendance is less desirable than the flexibility offered by online delivery. When work, family and general lifestyle priorities need to be juggled this world class program becomes an attractive option to many students world-wide.

- Site Supervisors
- Senior Trades Managers
- Trades Workers
- Construction Managers
- Maintenance Engineers or Supervisors
- Leading hands
- Consulting Engineers

Even those who are highly qualified in civil and structural engineering may find it useful to attend to gain practical know-how.

COURSE

This program is composed of 4 stages, delivered over 24 months. It is possible to achieve the advanced diploma qualification within the time period because the study mode is part-time intensive.

There are 8 threads around which the program is structured:

- Environmental issues
- Engineering technologies
- Drawing
- 2D and 3D CAD design
- Building materials
- Roads, steel, concrete, pavement, drainage, soil, water supply, sewerage
- Construction sites
- Engineering management

This is a program that integrates theory and practice and which provides advanced leadership skills for developing highly effective teams through a focus on purpose, integrity, culture, strategy, and the common good. It will be of special interest to those wanting to enhance their own leadership competence, organizational effectiveness and resilience, recruitment and retention of talent, reputation, and long-term productivity.

In addition to its value as a nine-credit graduate certificate, graduates of this certificate may be eligible for credit towards electives in other Royal Roads programs as follows: nine credits towards the MA in Leadership, nine credits towards the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies and six credits towards the MBA.

Delivery Model

The Graduate Certificate in Values-Based Leadership (GCVBL) is offered in a blended format which means that the program combines on-campus residencies with distance learning. This allows working professionals to benefit from the synergy of on-site learning and direct interaction with peers and faculty members, while being able to meet workplace demands and other commitments. The result is accessible, high quality learning with minimal professional disruption.

The first blended segment includes VBLD510 and VBLD512, two courses with three credits each which are taken concurrently. The second blended segment consists of a third three-credit course with an independent application project and concludes with a four-day, face-to-face on-campus residency.

Program Timelines, Methods and Resources - Students build a supportive learning community with their peers and facilitators by engaging in online team and group learning activities for the first five weeks. They also complete important readings during this time. The sixth week includes the on-campus residency, followed by online learning in teams for another three weeks. The second blended segment begins with nine weeks of online course work, a project, and a four-day wrap-up on-campus residency with an additional day given for project revisions and assessment. A variety of learning resources and methods are used including textbooks, assessment instruments, articles, case studies, interactive Internet learning, videotapes, and ‘chat’ bulletin boards for correspondence with colleagues and faculty in the program.

Workload - The first distance segment integrates two courses and represents approximately 15-20 hours per week, while the second distance segment should require 12-15 hours on average per week. Students can expect to work hard during the on-campus residency periods. The normal classroom schedule is from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with several evening sessions. Homework, readings, and team meetings are normally done outside of these hours. In addition to the educational activities, there may be some planned recreational events.

Delivery Model

The Environmental Education and Communication program combines the best of short residencies and innovative web-based instruction to allow both busy mid-career professionals and those just beginning their careers to get the most out of their academic experience. This combination of learning experiences gives students a beneficial on-campus experience while still being able to meet the demands of family and workplace.

The first residency introduces the cohort of students to each other, the faculty, and the Royal Roads University style of education. The second residency diploma may have a more directed field-based orientation.

Participants in the Graduate Diploma in Environmental Education and Communication program take nine courses.

A range of educational methodologies are utilized including case studies, field studies, cultural studies, team projects, lectures and seminar discussions, and online modules.

Online Learning
Distance courses are delivered through the innovative use of Internet technologies. Participants draw upon web resources as well as more traditional print media, while using online discussion groups and drop boxes to work towards the electronic submission of assignments. Normally, students take one distance course at a time, for a period of 10 - 12 weeks. Each distance course requires an average time commitment of 10 - 20 hours per week.

Residency
Students should expect to work hard during the residency period. The normal classroom schedule is Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Homework, readings, and team meetings are done outside these hours. There are some activities in the evenings, as well as during the normal workday. In addition to the educational activities, there are a number of planned recreational events.

Advanced Standing
Students may apply for transfer to the MA in Environmental Education and Communication during the Graduate Diploma program, or apply to the MA program once they have completed the Diploma. The Diploma is awarded upon successful completion of two residencies and one distance-based semester (approximately 12 months). Academic credit earned through the completion of one credential (e.g. certificate or diploma) accepted towards the completion of another credential (e.g. diploma or degree) within the same program area. Laddering agreements must be approved by Academic Council. Laddering agreements enable students to build upon previously earned credentials hence the content must be identical (e.g. course completed in a certificate program must contain the same content as those in the degree program). Students who are only registered in a degree program do not receive multiple credentials (e.g. certificate and degree). Students registered in a degree program must apply to the Dean should they wish to transfer to a certificate or diploma program. Similarly, students registered in a certificate or diploma program eligible for laddering must apply and be accepted into the higher level program.

Sponsors
In general, students have secured the necessary approvals to enter the program from their employer. Many employers will therefore be the sponsor and will, through the creation of a Learning Agreement, provide the student with the support and mentorship necessary to complete the program. However, a sponsor is not mandatory.

Environmental and Infrastructure Planning (EIP) focuses on the sustainable planning of infrastructure. It does so from a spatial planning perspective. This means that you will not only explore infrastructure planning, realization and management concerning roads, utilities and water systems; you will also learn about the relationship between societal and political processes.

The Master's degree focuses on students with an academic interest in designing policy solutions for problems in the field of environment, such as climate change. It will also give you the chance to learn more about issues concerning water, like flooding, and infrastructure project, for example the growth of mobility. The programme emphasizes the integration of technical knowledge with knowledge of planning and planning processes.

The interdisciplinary character of EIP is reflected in the contents of its curriculum. Several courses will strengthen your knowledge of issues in EIP and the tools you use in this discipline. To satisfy your individual academic interests, a number of electives are available. You complete the programme by writing a thesis.

Why in Groningen?

- Urban areas and issues of infrastructure, environment and water;
- Thinking (policy strategies) and doing (practical work on projects and plans);
- Compare international theory and practice;
- Program linked to international (e.g., AESOP) and national (e.g., Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment) institutes;
- Groningen offers a wide range of English-language course options and facilities;
- Optional: double degree programs (e.g. Bandung, Indonesia and Oldenburg, Germany).

Job perspectives

The diversity and complexity of EIP opens up a wide field of potential careers. The government is an important employer. Many EIP graduates start as a policy adviser within international, national, provincial and local offices in charge of spatial planning, transportation or water management. You can also find a job in the private sector where especially consultancy firms are keen to hire our graduates. It is also possible to start your own business or go into research.

The Msc Environmental and Infrastructure Planning (EIP) program follows a research agenda at the Department of Spatial Planning and Environment.

This research agenda concentrates on the relationships between institutional innovation (improved policy making) and spatial transformation (changing cities and regions). As a result, the lecturers in EIP try to:

CLARIFY notions of sustainability, capability, quality of life (wellbeing), adaptiveness, and resilience.EXPLAIN spatial transformation in terms of urban and regional change;CONCEPTUALIZE these insights for input to the theoretical debate and the empirical understanding of (mainly) Dutch, European and Asian planning practice.PROPOSE innovative realistic strategies and policy improvement for issues of infrastructure, water, and the environment;

The research questions underpinning EIP are:
- how do we establish possibilities for the sustainable development of our cities and regions?how do we integrate roads, water, environment and energy in comprehensive decisions?
