The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Visual Arts program at the University of Regina focuses on studio art practice/production and its contextualization within contemporary practice and critical discourse. Students meet with studio faculty on an individual basis. Weekly seminars focus on art theory and criticism, professional issues and the development of individual research projects.


Key facts:

  • MFA students in Visual Arts at the University of Regina are provided with well equipped studio spaces for six consecutive semesters and access to all department equipment and facilities including: the Fifth Parallel Student Gallery, the Dr. John Archer Library, the woodshop, graduate computer lab and the Visual Resource Centre.
  • The program is intentionally small (maximum of five students are accepted each year) in order to allow for intensive interaction between students and faculty. The department is comprised of eight studio professors and four art historians, all of whom are active, practicing professionals. The department is also complemented by faculty from the First Nations University of Canada, Luther College and by other members of the Fine Arts Faculty.
  • The MFA program culminates with a solo exhibition at the MacKenzie Art Gallery - or another approved space approved by the supervisor and the Visual Arts graduate committee and is - supported by a comprehensive support paper. An oral defense conducted by an external examiner, a committee of Visual Arts faculty and the Dean of FGSR or designate completes the degree requirements.
