Graduate Certificate in Public Safety Leadership
Royal Roads University
Objective of the agreement
Applicants from Fanshawe College who have completed of the Graduate Certificate (GC) in Public Safety Leadership who also hold an undergraduate degree or approved diploma/advanced diploma and have a minimum of five years public safety leadership experience will be considered for entry into RRU’s Master of Arts in Leadership. Graduates of the GC in Public Safety Leadership who do not possess an undergraduate degree will still be considered under the flexible admissions guidelines for the Master of Arts in Leadership, which will look at a combination of the applicant’s professional and academic experience.
In addition to successful completion of the GC in Public Safety Leadership applicants will still need to meet any remaining entrance requirements for the Master of Arts in Leadership (per the program admission requirements on the RRU website) and pursue the regular application process.
RRU agrees that students admitted to the Master of Arts in Leadership, who have previously completed the GC in Public Safety Leadership will receive transfer credit for the following courses:
- LEAD 516 – Concepts & Theory of Leadership in Organizations
- LEAD 517 – Self-Directed Studies or LEAD 519 -- Action-Oriented Research *Note: LEAD 519 is a requirement for the thesis track option of this program. If students choose to waive this course they will be unable to choose the thesis completion track and will instead need to choose the Engaged Leadership Project completion track. This does not affect the students' ability to complete the MA in Leadership, just the completion track they will be eligible for.
