The M.Ed. in Arts for Social Change (ASC), the first to be offered in Canada, is designed for artists, educators, change-makers and others who wish to integrate arts-based practices and insights into their work for social change.

In this interdisciplinary program, students will develop and refine skills in arts-infused group facilitation techniques and the integration of ASC processes into diverse agendas for change. Students will have the opportunity to intern with local organizations engaged in arts-based community projects.

Against a backdrop of practical and ethical concerns, and in contexts both local and global, we will explore the arts as catalysts for change in a wide range of settings, among them:

health and well-being
intergenerational engagement
social and environmental justice
community development
policy change
conflict resolution
social innovation and social enterprise

Ideally suited for: practicing artists, art educators at the K-12 and post-secondary levels, community activists, cultural workers, recent graduates and others who wish to integrate the arts and art-making into their work for innovative social change.

Learn in a cohort setting of 18-24 students with classes scheduled in an evening and weekend format to fit the needs of working professionals.
