This session is for you if you're currently working on an application to the MA or MFA program, or if you are generally interested in learning more about Graduate-level study in the School for the Contemporary Arts. We will be discussing the programs and their content, as well as answering more specific questions about application procedures.

The MFA in Interdisciplinary Studies offers an opportunity for artists from across the fields of dance, film, music, theatre, video and visual art to develop their work in shared studio and theory forums. Both disciplinary and hybrid practices are welcomed. MFA students pursue a program of original research and studio work, culminating in a graduate artistic project. The two-year program is full-time, requiring students to be in the Vancouver area.

The MA in Comparative Media Arts is at the forefront of an emergent intermedial approach to the arts. Seminars give students a strong grounding in interdisciplinary research methods and new developments across moving-image media, performance studies, visual culture, and digital art. Students also have access to graduate courses across the university and the opportunity to pursue a practical placement. The four-semester program prepares students for careers in the arts and for doctoral studies.
