Why Royal Roads University

Unique Learning Model – called “Effective”
The programs offered at Royal Roads University provide each learner with the tools and techniques required to be effective after graduation. Whether you’re looking for a new career or want to improve your standing, financially and professionally, within your current organization, our blended learning model of online courses and intensive, on-campus residencies lets you use what you learn, today.

The online learning model allows you to continue working while you complete your degree. The program begins with a short, on-campus residency that allows you to meet the rest of the learners in your cohort, followed by distance courses that deliver the theoretical and information-based material in the program. Moodle, the platform used for online learning, facilitates the delivery of learning materials while providing you with the ability to interact and engage with fellow students and professors.

A sustainable future
At Royal Roads University, we understand that environmental leadership is required and we’re proud that our students, faculty, and staff support this direction. Climate change is one of the most critical challenges of our time, and we are focused on initiatives that support campus sustainability. Environmental sustainability is not only intrinsically linked to our teaching and research mandate, it’s a challenge that calls for the kind of interdisciplinary and collaborative problem-solving at which we excel.
