MASTER OF FINE ARTS PROGRAM

The Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree program offers students the opportunity to pursue graduate study in Art, New Media, and Theatre and Dramatic Arts.  These majors each emphasize a combination of theory and practice relevant to their discipline. Faculty, comprised of artists and scholars, foster an environment of active engagement with material, critical and conceptual investigations in production and performance. The M.F.A. program allows graduate students to concentrate in their chosen disciplines and to synthesize their research into a unique and challenging Thesis Project. Exceptional facilities, integrated technical support, a lively community of arts and culture, and a commitment to academic and creative excellence are integral qualities of the Faculty of Fine Arts.

In the MFA (Art) at the University of Lethbridge, I've found a program with an academic and collegial atmosphere, one that allows for rich exchange and deep connections with my committee and peers as well as with the student body as a whole. My desire to challenge myself and to take risks in my art practice has been consistently supported. The Art Department's exceptional faculty and staff are genuinely committed to the creation of a positive experience and to the successful completion of my program of study.
