A Note On Course Locations
We recognize that many potential students for M.ADS (and the Graduate Diploma) reside and work in the GTA and Hamilton areas. Therefore, we try to schedule courses in the GTA and at the Brock Hamilton campus. It is likely that we will continue to provide courses in one or both of these cities as long as we have sufficient numbers to justify offering classes in said locations.
Students applying to the Southern Ontario program cannot choose their course locations and we reserve the right to offer courses in other locations, in particular at the Brock St. Catharines main campus. While we do not offer a "Toronto" or "Hamilton" program, per se, we try to place students in classes that are most convenient to them. This is not always possible, be prepared to travel. A trip to the St. Catharines Campus will be required for all students at least once during the course of their degree while completing their final research projects.
We may not be able to accommodate all students all the time and not all your courses will be in the location most convenient for you. For example, if you live in Toronto, you still may have to take (weekend) classes in Hamilton.
We currently offer a Part-Time M.ADS (ABA) program in Ottawa every three years and will continue to so long as we have sufficient numbers to justify offering the program. We would consider offering satellite programs in other Ontario metropolitan areas (i.e., London, Thunder Bay), if the numbers warrant.
Programs offered in other cities are exclusively Brock University programs and not that of other universities in those cities.
MA and Full Time M.ADS Students are expected to attend the St. Catharines Campus regularly, in addition to courses in Hamilton. Students with the General Specialization should also expect to take classes in both Hamilton and St. Catharines.
