About

The Studio Art program of University of Guelph offers an outstanding educational experience which promotes active artmaking involving risk-taking, commitment and critical insight.

Overview

Key facts

The Studio Art program of University of Guelph equally supports interdisciplinary and media-specific practices. Individual development of artwork is stimulated by lively group seminars exploring contemporary art theory and practice. The innovative curriculum of the MFA program also includes a seminar course on pedagogy which recognizes teaching as a complementary pursuit for many contemporary artists.

Coursework is structured over a period of four semesters (two academic years) of full-time enrolment. Degree candidates present a thesis, which is comprised of an exhibition of artwork, a written support paper and an oral examination- three components that represent a thorough and integrated art practice. Throughout the duration of study, faculty advisors work closely with students in directing individual artwork and research projects. As a culminating highpoint, each semester concludes with intensive formal critiques involving all graduate faculty members, students and specially invited, distinguished artists and art professionals.

Program

The thesis is comprised of a professional exhibition of artwork, a written support paper, and an oral examination; three components that represent a thorough and integrated art practice.
