Graduate Diplomas for Students in the MPPA

Add “something extra” to your MPPA!

Carleton University offers Type II Graduate Diplomas that can be taken by MPPA students concurrently with their master’s degree. This option allows MPPA students to graduate with a Master’s degree and a graduate diploma. Students apply to the Graduate Diploma after acceptance to the MPPA and separately from the MPPA application process.

MPPA students enrolled in a Type II Graduate Diploma can have 1.0 credit of course work count towards the MPPA and their Graduate Diploma.
