The School of Creative Arts at the University of Windsor welcomes applicants to the MFA program in Visual Arts and the new MFA program in Film and Media Arts

Deadline for applications: Feb, 1st, 2017

Students entering the program in Fall 2017 will be offered a Graduate Assistantship with opportunities in a variety of courses bridging studio practice with historical and theoretical perspectives. Applicants/Candidates are additionally encouraged to consider submitting a further application to Research Assistantships that will be available during the 2017-18 academic year. Additional scholarships and funding opportunities are available through the University of Windsor.

In 2017, the University of Windsor’s School of Creative Arts is moving into new state-of-the-art facilities, based in the historic Windsor Armouries building. Our students are easily able to access Detroit’s vibrant cultural institutions and artistic districts.

The Master of Fine Arts Program in Visual Arts at the University of Windsor is a two-year, studio-centered program geared towards creative exploration, experimentation and the development of a sustainable artistic practice. The program provides graduate students with a critical and theoretical framework that enables the independent development of artistic research and studio production. Windsor’s School of Creative Arts/ Visual Arts has one of the longest running MFA in Visual Arts programs in Canada, founded in 1979. University of Windsor graduates have gone on to establish significant careers as visual artists, educators, curators and arts professionals.

The Master of Fine Arts in Film and Media Arts at the University of Windsor (a new program as of 2015) focuses on studio production with an emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration.

We accept only five students annually into each program. We encourage a multi-disciplinary approach to art that enables students to experiment with a variety of media and methods to discover those best suited to realizing their creative projects. Recently these have ranged from video installation, audio responsive installation, performance, social practice, bio art, and urban intervention.

Our faculty have established national and international reputations, exhibiting, performing, screening films, and presenting historical research regularly in Canada and abroad. Currently, School of Creative Arts faculty members are working on a range of externally funded projects that explore multimedia performance, the intersection of art and biotechnology, ecology, architecture, documentary film, urban life, and border cultures. We encourage applications from aspiring filmmakers and artists working in a wide variety of contemporary practices.
