Art & Design

The study of art and design spans almost every school and program in our faculty. Whether its studying visual or performing arts in our School for the Contemporary Arts, publication design in our MPub program, or graphic and media arts in our School of Interactive Arts and Technology, we offer an interdisciplinary environment where students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels can expand their artistic practice and critical thinking.

School for the Contemporary Arts

Bachelor of Arts — Art, Performance and Cinema Studies Major

This program investigates art and culture with attention to the historically changing forms of class, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality and aesthetics. It provides students with the knowledge, research and communication skills needed to participate effectively in contemporary debates about art and culture.

Publishing Program

Master of Publishing or Publishing Minor

As the only postgraduate publishing program in Canada, our MPub program is the premier training ground for publishing professionals where students are equipped with the tools needed to excel in the publishing industry. Undergraduate students can augment their degree with a publishing minor teaching them the aspects of the publishing industry from its history to the marketing of books and magazines. 

School of Interactive Arts & Technology 

Bachelor of Arts - Interactive Arts and Technology

Students in this program complete a common set of first- and second-year courses. In third and fourth year, students begin to take elective courses across the program. Alternatively, students completing an interactive arts and technology major or joint major may also choose to focus their coursework on one or more concentrations in interactive systems, design, or media arts. 

School for the Contemporary Arts

Master of Arts in Comparative Media Arts

The SCA MA in Comparative Media Arts provides students with well-rounded, interdisciplinary expertise through theoretical and historical perspectives from art history, cinema studies, performance studies, and digital arts. Working in parallel with students in the MFA program, MA scholars are immersed in an environment of creative experimentation.
