Learning Outside Class

Every day, the university hums with activity that happens outside the classroom.

Activity designed to pique your interest, expose you to subjects outside your own area of study, inspire you and enrich your experience at MacEwan University.

Conferences. Speakers series. Special events. Theatre productions and musical performances. Exhibits of student work.

Here, you'll be exposed to a world of experience - the talents, knowledge and life experiences of renowned experts, authors and musicians from around the world - and from right here under our own roof.

Here's a small selection:

  • Lectures and presentations: Throughout the year, our faculties, schools and departments present these sessions that expand and supplement the academic experience.
