Program Information

School:University of Regina - Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research
Faculty:Fine Arts
Degree:Master
Field of Study:Fine/Studio Arts, General
Description:The graduate programs in Interdisciplinary Studies in Fine Arts include a studies-based Master of Arts (MA) and a practice-based Master of Fine Arts (MFA). In both cases, students are required to complete projects which integrate knowledge from two or three distinct traditional disciplines one of which must be a Fine Arts discipline (i.e.: media production and studies, music, theatre, visual arts).

It is the philosophy of our program that traditional skills and specializations are usefully augmented and contextualized by a Fine Arts perspective and a cross-disciplinary approach. As society moves towards information economies, cultural and entertainment sectors are rapidly emerging as driving forces in change. In this environment, there is an opportunity to expand the role of the Fine Arts beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries to the areas of technology and science; social history; pedagogy; and consciousness and identity. The graduate program in Interdisciplinary Studies in the Fine Arts is designed to accommodate students who are motivated to pursue innovative projects in a rigorous intellectual environment that is supported by a flexible framework of coursework and an expansive network of research links to the university community.
