About

The MA in Community Engagement (MACE) at the University of Alberta is an interdisciplinary, thesis-based degree program that offers students an opportunity to develop an understanding of the field of community engagement and the practices and processes that inform it. 

Overview

In this program, you will undertake an in-depth examination of the conceptual and philosophical underpinnings of community engagement, as well as learn about research and engagement methodologies. You will also gain practical experience working with community, as you complete your own thesis research project with the support and guidance of academic experts.

Program Plan

The Master of Arts in Community Engagement (MACE) at the University of Alberta includes three core courses (MACE 501, MACE 502, and MACE 503), three graduate-level electives, a community experience practicum, and a written thesis based on the student’s original research project. 

Electives may be taken through any faculty; one of the electives must be a graduate-level course in research methods. Some potential electives are listed in our Student Handbook. For additional graduate level courses, consult the University of Alberta calendar, but discuss course selection with your advisor/supervisor prior to enrolment to be sure it aligns with your program.
