The MACT program may be completed through either a course-based or thesis-based route.
All students will be admitted to a course-based route. A small number of students may be considered for the thesis route after the completion of the first Spring Institute, and can request a change of program category after consulting with their supervisor.
Coursework is offered through blended and online formats. Students are required to attend two Spring Institutes, held each May.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 36 units in coursework, including a 6-unit final applied research project.
Core Courses (21 units)
Four of the core courses are completed during two Spring Institutes, held each May at the University of Alberta, with other core courses offered online.
