As you pursue your creative goals, we offer opportunities to work closely with internationally active artists and scholars in an intimate setting.

Work in spacious well-equipped facilities and undertake projects with expert technical support, creative guidance, and critical dialogue. Smaller class sizes give the opportunity to engage with instructors who really get to know their students. Gain professional experience through exhibition and curatorial opportunities in the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, and other forums.

Your courses provide breadth and depth to your understanding of art and visual culture. Through our renowned Art Now and Architecture and Design Now visiting speaker series you encounter numerous national and international artists, architects, curators and designers, with opportunities to interact with them through workshops and studio visits. 

The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, home to one of the most impressive art collections in the country, provides unique learning opportunities and valuable hands–on museum experience.

You can choose to further customize your degree by earning a minor in one of these management areas: First Nations Governance, General Management, International Management, Marketing or Social Responsibility.
