For 40 years, MacEwan has been providing education for a changing world. And we’ve changed along with it. MacEwan has grown – we are now Alberta’s newest university, serving nearly 12,000 full-time students. But in the things that matter, we remain the same. We’re innovative. We value teaching and learning. We’re highly engaged with our students. And we are unwavering in our quest to inspire and challenge. We remain focused on our students – providing them with choices and opportunities for success with a dynamic mix of certificate, diploma, degree transfer, applied degree and undergraduate degree programs. At Grant MacEwan University, the sky’s the limit.

Looking for a different university experience?

We have a program for that. We know planning your future isn’t easy. There are lots of choices and decisions to make; some difficult, some not-so difficult. The bottom line? You need an education that’s right for you. Take the time to find out about us – who we are, what we offer and where you can go from here – we’re certain you’ll find what you’re looking for at MacEwan. Are you ready to be noticed? We encourage small class sizes. And our faculty are experienced and well-respected in their fields. Most importantly, they’re accessible. Put these together and you get the extra attention and interaction that sparks creative ideas and new ways of thinking.

Do you crave experience? A post-secondary education is a life-changing experience. It’s an opportunity for you to encounter new things, meet new people, and immerse yourself in a culture with a vibrant pulse – competitive athletics… art shows… theatre productions… international student events…clubs… a dynamic Students’ Association, and more. Much, much more.

Want an education that works? We give you the practical tools that open doors in the job market – in 2009, 95 per cent of our grads found jobs in their field. Plus, you’ll get the quality academic foundation to go on to further studies. In fact, many MacEwan grads are

continuing their education in graduatelevel programs at institutions around the world including the United Kingdom, France and the United States. So, it’s no wonder that 96 per cent of our students are satisfied with the quality of their education at MacEwan.

Not only does MacEwan nurture and help you choose the path that’s right for you, but the advisors are always there to help you evaluate all of your options.

Fabjola Gera • Bachelor of Commerce (International Business), second year What’s next? After graduation I plan to apply to Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta. After going to MacEwan’s Open House, I preferred the feel of “the MacEwan community.” MacEwan is great for so many reasons, and the first is that everyone is so willing to help. The faculty really make an effort to get to know you and make sure you are aware of the resources available to you. Overall I feel like MacEwan was the best choice I could have made and I’m really being prepared to achieve my goals!

I came to MacEwan because I couldn’t resist the friendly, motivating, “I-can-help-youachieve-that” atmosphere. Vivian Balkaron Bachelor of Commerce (International Business), fourth year What’s next? Travel around the world! I am planning on getting a master’s degree outside of Canada, possibly South America. The people are great—the students, teachers, and the MacEwan Ambassadors. The MacEwan Ambassador Program exceeded my expectations in regards to leadership and friendship. I don’t see myself attending MacEwan without being an Ambassador. Also, the friends that I have made during my career have inspired me and constantly remind me of how lucky I am to be here in MacEwan, and Canada.

MacEwan Programs Bachelor degrees Your degree, your choice From start to finish, MacEwan offers students more choice. Now you can earn your baccalaureate degree right here. Providing increased access to quality education through four-year degrees was a natural progression for MacEwan. We’re already established as the number one transfer institution in the province, so this simply means more options for you. All of our degree programs have undergone an in-depth and rigorous review to ensure that they meet both national and international quality standards.

Applied degrees The ultimate in well-rounded education Applied degrees combine three years of academic study with one year of paid on-the-job experience – creating a “learning laboratory” that allows you to hone your skills in the real world and kick-start your career.

University transfer Start your university studies at MacEwan Take the first one or two years of your baccalaureate degree at MacEwan, then transfer to another institution. As you learn in smaller classes with respected faculty members who know you by name, you will gain the confidence you need to take the next steps.

Careers – diplomas and certificates

Part-time, distance and online delivery Fit learning around your life

Get in, get out and get working

Post-diploma certificates

Complete a career-related program in one or two years with a marketable credential, and you’ll be prepared to enter the workforce with expertise and a solid skill set that employers expect. Most of MacEwan’s career programs have transfer agreements with other learning institutions in Alberta and beyond.

Continue your professional development at MacEwan. Our post-diploma certificates in nursing and business are geared for those who have successfully completed two or more years of postsecondary education and want to take their career to the next level.

Real education for a real world

We know that full-time education is not always an option. That’s why MacEwan works hard to create learning opportunities to suit your busy schedule, including part-time study, compressed schedules, alternative intakes, and print-based and online distance delivery options. We’re also a member of eCampusAlberta, a province-wide initiative that currently offers more than 700 credential courses and 60 programs through online study.

MacEwan is accessible, accommodating and inviting. It’s an innovative place and is very student-focused. David Drohan Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), second year What’s next? Graduate school. I’d like to work in either clinical or organizational/industrial psychology. Things like alternative intakes, small class sizes, accommodating faculty who know your name—and great reviews from friends—all influenced my decision to seek my education at MacEwan. Combine that with all the opportunities to get involved in the university, and you’ve got something special. Since being elected into the Students’ Association executive, I’ve really come to realize how big a role services like the housing registry, the library and IT services have played in my education. 8

I stayed here because I felt like I was getting more from my education than just knowledge from a classroom. Darren Joneson • Bachelor of Science, fourth year What’s next? Medical school at the University of Alberta, and if that doesn’t work out then I’ve been accepted to go teach English in Japan for a year.

Acupuncture www.MacEwan.ca/acupuncture Faculty of Health and Community Studies

W

ith 5,000 years of history, acupuncture is one of the oldest health disciplines in the world. In Western culture, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has surged in popularity over the past decade, creating exciting opportunities for graduates of this unique program. Acupuncturists view disease as an imbalance in the body’s energy, which flows along well-defined pathways called meridians. By inserting very thin acupuncture needles in specific points along these meridians, a well-trained acupuncturist intends to normalize the flow of energy and prevent or treat illness by initiating the body’s own healing mechanisms.

Correctional Services www.MacEwan.ca/corrections Faculty of Health and Community Studies

T

he Correctional Services diploma offers a comprehensive education that provides graduates with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to prepare them for a career in the criminal justice field. First-year courses focus on acquiring a foundational understanding of the criminal justice system, including a study of the Canadian Criminal Code and other relevant legislation, an overview of correctional policies and procedures, interpersonal communication courses, as well as criminology, sociology and restorative justice. Second-year studies build on that theory base with skill development courses such as counselling, case management and psychology. In addition, students learn how to work effectively with specific offender populations while exploring topics such as substance abuse intervention, diversity and crisis intervention. Reinforcing this academic base, students are provided with an opportunity to put theory into practice through two work-integrated learning placements that provide hands-on education experiences that prepare students for their future career within a correctional institution, government criminal justice agency or other agency dealing with justice-related issues.

Career potential Graduates of the Correctional Services program work in all areas of the criminal justice system, and career opportunities have never been better! The program has an exceptional employment rate, and with the large number of anticipated retirements in the field, job prospects continue to be great. Our graduates work with adults and youth in both community-based and institutional settings such as group homes, probation and parole offices, provincial and federal prisons, and young offender centres.

Music

career in music is one that is full of possibilities and a bit out of the ordinary. There is something about dedicating your life to music that can be extremely rewarding and very challenging. You know where you belong. You are a musician.

www.MacEwan.ca/music Centre for the Arts and Communications

But before the gigs and record deals, every talented and passionate musician has to start somewhere. You need to learn more than just the basics, you need training that will support you the rest of your creative life. MacEwan focuses on jazz, rock and pop, so you have the freedom to explore your own interests – making us one of the only post-secondary schools in Western Canada to offer such a diverse learning experience. Because the level of skill, training and musical literacy required of musicians in contemporary and commercial music is constantly rising, our two-year diploma program is designed to provide you with the world-class academic and performance training you’ll need to be successful. Additionally, we are now offering a four-year Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music degree.

Career potential For more than 30 years, we have been training some of Canada’s most talented musicians to be flexible in terms of their playing and range of skills so they can enjoy a sustained career in the music industry. MacEwan Music graduates have gone on to pursue careers as songwriters, performers, accompanists, arrangers, composers, record producers and distributors, and sound technicians, to name just a few.

Program of study At MacEwan, classroom work, group work, practice, rehearsals, and performances all serve to help you develop a level of comfort in your field, so you can pursue your dream with confidence and expertise.

In your first year, you’ll cover the basics with individual instrumental or vocal lessons, improvisation, ear training, the history of jazz and popular music, and theory. Then, in your second year you’ll get to focus one of the program’s four areas of specialization – composition, performance, recording technology, or comprehensive music studies. Private instruction is offered for a number of instruments including guitar, piano, drums, bass (electric and acoustic), winds, and voice. With many different performance opportunities including major public performances, recitals, coffee houses, jam sessions and your own gigs, you will quickly turn that raw potential into real, practical skills. For full course details, refer to the full-time calendar, available at any

Transferability There are many roads a MacEwan Music diploma graduate can travel. You’ll be ready to hit the ground running after two years, but you may also want the option to continue your studies. In addition to possible admission to the MacEwan Bachelor of Music degree, MacEwan Music has set up some of the best transfer agreements to a number of the most exclusive jazz and contemporary music schools in the world. Internationally, graduates have successfully transferred to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, and to The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA), which was founded with the help of Beatle legend, Sir Paul McCartney.

Of course you don’t have to leave Canada to further your studies. Formal transfer has been arranged with McGill University in Montreal, Laval University in Quebec City, University of Toronto, University of Lethbridge and University of Alberta. Please contact the program for details.

acEwan has earned a reputation for graduating compassionate, professional social workers for more than 40 years. Social workers are able to assess and respond to human problems at both an individual and a social, structural level. This requires a certain type of individual: one who is open-minded, empathetic, tolerant and committed to building strong communities. The Social Work curriculum consists of a strong academic approach to social work theory and practice, complemented by a number of university transfer electives and field placements. With dedicated faculty, a student-centred approach to learning, and the flexibility to partially complete many courses online, the Social Work diploma prepares students to become Registered Social Workers (RSW) with the Alberta College of Social Workers.

Career potential

Program of study

The program is recognized across Canada as a leader in social work education. It’s no wonder that our graduates have a wide variety of career opportunities with government departments and community agencies working as family and community support workers, addiction counsellors, immigration counsellors/ advocates, child protection workers, mental health workers, youth workers, etc. Many of MacEwan’s Social Work alumni have distinguished themselves in the field and now hold senior positions. The program values diversity and incorporates a culturally relevant and sensitive approach to practice. Our focus on personal growth and leadership ensures that you will have every opportunity to enjoy a successful career as a social work professional.

First-year courses include social work philosophy, counselling skills, social work with children and adolescents, family processes, and social work methods and practice skills. Secondyear courses include group work, additional practice methods courses, social policy, mental health, addictions and trauma, and community practice. Social sciences courses such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, and other elective courses provide a broad perspective. Supervised field placements each term provide a practical environment to apply new skills and gain valuable professional experience.

Career potential There is a growing demand in the theatre industry for passionate, competent, responsible technicians who aren’t afraid of hard work. Over the past 30 years, our program has produced hundreds of lighting and sound technicians, set and costume technicians and builders, stage managers, production managers, technical directors, and other theatre professionals. Alumni work on cruise lines, in stage, film, television, festivals, concerts, special events, and other venues in Canada, the United States and abroad. Our graduates have played key roles locally at the Citadel Theatre and Winspear Centre and nationally with the renowned Stratford Festival in Ontario.

Program of study At MacEwan, we believe a wellrounded technician is an employable technician. The better you understand the entire industry, the more marketable you will be. Your first year is spent touching on every aspect of technical production – from set construction and prop making to set changes and stage management. In your second year, more than two-thirds of your courses can be dedicated to a specialization. So whether you are fascinated with lighting and sound, or prefer to learn

the basics of wardrobe, MacEwan gives you exposure to all areas. At MacEwan, the goal is to learn by doing.

Previous post-secondary work Applicants who have taken previous post-secondary course work may also be admitted through other categories, visit www.MacEwan.ca/programs. Admission in this category does not imply or guarantee the transfer of any coursework and/or credential unless a block transfer agreement (internal or external) is in effect and published in the calendar by the Office of the Registrar. In addition, transfer of coursework does not imply or guarantee that an applicant will be admitted.

Provisional admission Provisional admission may be assigned to an applicant who has been offered admission to the program in one of the stated admission categories. The offer of provisional admission is based on completion of specified conditions that must be satisfied within the first year of enrolment by the date specified in the offer. Access to courses, activities, and / or field placement or clinical studies may be limited until all provisional requirements are met.

Applicants admitted within this category will be placed on probation.

Admission Grade Point Average (AGPA) The AGPA is calculated on the most recent 24 credits of post-secondary work. The coursework for an entire term will be used to calculate AGPA where the break point for 24 credits falls during that term. Six-credit courses that span both the Fall and winter terms are considered winter courses, and six-credit courses that span both the spring and summer terms are considered summer courses in these cases. Fewer than nine post-secondary credits: If an applicant presents fewer than nine credits of post-secondary work, it will not be calculated for admission purposes. Nine to 24 post-secondary credits: For applicants who have attempted between nine and 24 credits of postsecondary work, the AGPA is based on all post-secondary credits attempted.

We are committed to scholarship and the maintenance of high academic standards. We believe that learners benefit from their association with educators and staff who demonstrate integrity and purpose, leadership in their fields, and passion for their work. We endeavour to enhance our students’ capacity to live wellbalanced, productive lives as citizens of our interconnected world.
