Graduate program of study

Master of Fine Arts

Application Deadline: January 15

MFA 2015-2016 Class

The University of Ottawa's Department of Visual Arts offers a Master's in Fine Arts (MFA).

In this bilingual two-year program students work within a variety of artistic practices, from photography and media arts to sculpture, painting and drawing, video and installation art. They take an in-depth look at theories informing contemporary art and image culture, and choose between an interdisciplinary studio approach or specializing in a single medium.

In order to ensure our students high-quality instruction, the program has limited enrolment: only six candidates are admitted per year and twelve candidates are in the program at any given time.

The program is for students wishing to study full-time only.

Generous bursaries and teaching assistantships are provided for students with appropriate academic and professional achievements.

A vibrant arts community in the heart of Canada's capital

The University's Department of Visual Arts is located in Ottawa's downtown core, home to many of Canada's most influential and dynamic art institutions.
The Department is within walking distance of the National Gallery of Canada, Library and Archives Canada, the Canadian Museum of Nature, the Canadian Museum of History, the Canada Council Art Bank Gallery, as well as the Ottawa Art Gallery, SAW Video and the Karsh-Masson Gallery. These institutions feature high-profile exhibitions, outstanding collections and first-class research facilities.

Students can also take advantage of the Museum of Classical Antiquities in the University's Department of Classical and Religious Studies. Our adjunct professors include directors and curators of these important museums, galleries, and archives, as well as some of Canada's most outstanding art practitioners, critics, and historians.

Interested candidates are invited to contact Professor Penny Cousineau-Levine, Graduate Program Director for more information: arvdirg@uottawa.ca,  613-562-5800 ext. 8745.
