The aim of the diploma in Military Arts and Science is to provide non-commissioned members (NCMs) of the Canadian Forces, as well as civilians interested in military affairs, a comprehensive knowledge of leadership, critical thinking, security studies, resource management and communications skills deemed essential to the functioning of a modern military or large corporation. This diploma will serve as a recognized component of the NCMs' training.
Through distance education, students pursue a combination of required courses and electives to meet their individual interests and career goals. They will examine the historical roots of the Canadian Forces and its role in modern society. Students will debate national and international security issues confronting governments today and the role of specific military actions. They will also gain an understanding of the laws associated with the use of armed force in both domestic and international operations. Students will develop strong communication, problem solving and critical-thinking skills as well as effective project management and teambuilding techniques. Students learn to plan complex operations making efficient use of resources. Ethical reasoning and leadership will be emphasized along with strategies for stress management and ongoing personal and professional development. Humber, through the Ontario Learn consortium, is pleased to offer this program in partnership with the Canadian Armed Forces and the Royal Military College.
