Leadership and Community Engagement (MLCE)
The new and exciting Master of Leadership & Community Engagement (MLCE) is a part-time professional master’s degree that prepares graduates for leadership roles in public-sector organizations and communities with a focus on community engagement and innovation.
The program emphasizes leadership, policy, community engagement, program design and evaluation, as well as social justice.
Designed for candidates working in a wide range of contexts — including educational settings, community organizations and other areas in the public sector such as health care, child and youth services, libraries, recreational programs and arts and culture institutions — the MLCE is ideal for professionals interested in developing the skills and knowledge that will allow them to leverage community-based research and practice for social change.
The program is offered as a five-term, part-time degree through both online and blended (a mix of online and in-class) courses, and it includes two community-based placements. Students participate in the program as members of a cohort, which provides an additional sense of community.
