Leadership (MA)

Master of Arts (MA)
Engage in values-based leadership studies that prepare you to make a positive impact across a variety of sectors.

Our degree program is designed to develop emerging leaders to become confident and effective servant-leaders for the 21st Century.

The MA in Leadership degrees are offered with two foundational curriculum themes – Transformational Servant Leadership and Values-Based Leadership. Our degree program is designed to develop emerging leaders using the Competency Model to become confident and effective servant-leaders for the 21st Century.

Specializations

Our capstone project is a focused and facilitated Leadership Integration Project (LIP) that applies the leadership competency model, which each learner completes as part of the degree. This project improves leadership capacity and impact across the five diverse sectors upon which MA Lead focuses. Students interested in the Thesis Track must submit an application. Contact the Program Coordinator (lead@twu.ca) for additional details. The Leadership Integration Thesis provides opportunity for students to conduct innovative independent leadership research. The process of research—from identification of a problem for investigation, research design, data, collection and analysis, to written report of findings—is the focus.

Program Highlights

Alumni Perspective

"As an Indigenous educator and scholar, it was critical that I join a graduate program whose values aligned with the communities I serve. TWU’s MA in Leadership program nurtured my commitment to social and ecological justice through research, theory, and practice. It equipped me to pursue a doctoral degree to redress the legacy of oppression and marginalization of First Peoples and peoples with disabilities."
