Visual Arts Programs
For Humanities, Fine Arts and Professional Writing Co-operative Education information, please see this page.
The department offers an undergraduate program leading to the degree of BFA, Visual Arts Major, and a two-year graduate program leading to an MFA. In addition, students may complete a combined degree program in Visual Arts and Computer Science.
The academic emphasis of the department is on contemporary art practices, rather than applied or craft training. The program is designed to provide intensive studio experience in a critical setting pertinent to the pursuit of art in our culture. Studies are enriched by visiting artists and critics, and the presence of graduate students from Canada and abroad. In addition to the regular program, the department may offer courses each summer which are staffed by notable visiting artists.
