Get Your Questions Answered and Learn More About our 2016 Curriculum & Instruction: Arts for Social Change Master of Education Program!

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:

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

Curriculum & Instruction:

Arts for Social Change

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.
