Program Description:

The MFA in Visual Arts is a five term studio-centred program in which students independently develop an art practice, guided by faculty advisors who share their practice/theory interests. Seminars, guest lectures and critiques provide an environment of critical and theoretical enquiry that reflects contemporary debates in art and culture. No emphasis is placed on any one medium. The combined MBA/MFA is offered by the Schulich School of Business and the Graduate Program in Visual Arts. Graduates of this highly challenging program will follow career paths in which knowledge of the arts and of management and business are required. The PhD in Visual Arts is a four year full-time program of study in which individually defined conceptual foci are materialized and disseminated through an integration of art works, research and writing. This advanced practice-based degree will prepare mature artist-researchers with the highest qualifications to teach studio and theory courses, supervise graduate students within a university context, and have significant professional careers as artists.
