Interdisciplinary Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Media and Artistic Research - Research and Exhibition

The graduate programs in Interdisciplinary Programs in MAP include a studies-based Master of Arts (MA); a practice-based Master of Fine Arts (MFA); and an Interdisciplinary PhD in Media and Artistic Research with three possible paths: Path A: Research on the Arts; Path B: Research in the Arts; and Path C: Research Through the Arts. In all cases, students are required to complete projects which integrate knowledge from two or three distinct traditional disciplines, one of which must be a MAP discipline (i.e.: film, media production, media studies, music, theatre, visual arts) or area (i.e.: creative technologies).

It is the philosophy of our program that traditional skills and specializations are usefully augmented and contextualized by a more traditional fine arts perspective and a contemporary 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 beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries to the areas of creative technologies and science; social history; pedagogy; and consciousness and identity. The graduate program in Interdisciplinary Studies in MAP 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.
