Master of Arts in Communications and Technology University of Alberta




Course info


The multidisciplinary Master of Arts in Communications and Technology (MACT) offers a theoretical, historical, and practical examination of communications. The degree is designed for individuals who seek to provide reflective and informed leadership in the management and use of information and communications technologies in their organizations and fields. These fields include education and training, information technology, marketing, mass media, new media production, program design and development, public affairs, and writing and publishing. Coursework covers small-group and organizational communication; the theory, history, and practice of information and communications technologies; and the research skills associated with analyzing and evaluating these technologies, particularly as they are managed and used in the workplace. The MACT program may be completed through either a course-based or thesis-based route.

Program Requirements

Applicants from outside of the Alberta capital region, including international applicants, may register in the MACT program without changing their place of residence, except for the required residency of the Spring Institute and for thesis-based students, a combined online and face-to-face residency in Year 1. The course-based route requires the completion of seven core courses, three electives, and a final applied research project. The thesis-based route requires the completion of five core courses, up to two electives, and the thesis. For both routes, 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. Students may complete approved elective courses offered by the University of Alberta or another recognized university.

Length of Program

Core courses are scheduled to permit completion of the degree through either the course-based or thesis-based route within two academic years
