Welcome to the Faculty of Continuing Education and Extension

MRU Continuing Education - Photo - Dean WebberWelcome to the Faculty of Continuing Education and Extension at Mount Royal University, where we have been offering innovative programming to learners of all ages since 1948.

Technology always has driven change in our society, from the industrial revolution to today’s knowledge economy and globalization. The rapid pace of technological and social change has led to a growing need for lifelong learning in order to remain competitive, contribute meaningfully to society and enjoy a rewarding life.

At Mount Royal Continuing Education, we offer practical, engaging and flexible programming across all sectors in business, industry, health care, social services, and education. We provide learners with top quality learning opportunities in the classroom, online, in the workplace, and throughout communities.

Continuing Education works in concert with credit programming at Mount Royal University to create programs that complement a wide range of learning paths. For instance, some extension certificates may be recognized for course credit in degree programs.

I hope you enjoy your learning experience at Mount Royal and return to us for all of your lifelong learning needs.
