MA in Community Development

Master's Projects

Students in the Master of Arts in Community Development (MACD) program may choose to complete either a group Master's Project (CD 596) or an individual Master's Project (CD 598) to conclude their program.

Group Master's Project
The MACD Group Master's Project (CD 596) requires students to work in small groups. This project is a substantial analysis of a management, policy or program problem for a client in the community development sector. This major project is prepared, throughout the program, in consultation with the client and an academic supervisor from regular faculty from the university and qualified practitioners and must be both practical and academically rigorous.

Individual Master's Project
The MACD Individual Master's Project (CD 598) is a substantial analysis of a management, policy or program problem for a client in the community development sector. This major project is prepared in consultation with the client and an academic supervisor from regular faculty from the university and qualified practitioners and must be both practical and academically rigorous.

Master's Project Guide
The purpose of this guide is to provide a resource document for MACD students. It may be consulted at any time by individuals who are either considering applying for the Master’s Program or are current students. The guide can be used as a companion document to your work in the MACD program and will assist you with the conceptualization of a research project, development of the project’s research design, execution of the research, and the production of a written report to be presented at the defence.  View the MACD Master's Project Guide
