BDes students, studying visual communications design or photography, benefit from an extensive design based curriculum developed to exceed design industry expectations.

Students engaged in the BFA degree program choose to focus their studies in 1 of 9 studio areas, and each student benefits from the interdisciplinary approach of a diverse variety of media, ideas and people interacting in one comprehensive space. BFA majors include: ceramics, drawing, fibre, glass, jewellery + metals, media arts, painting, print media and sculpture.

The BFA and BDes programs begin with First Year Studies - a common year-long experience that provides a critical foundation of technical and problem solving skills. It's also your opportunity to explore a variety of creative directions and studio experiences. Upon completion of First Year Studies you'll choose to apply to a major in the BDes program or enter studies at the 200 level of the BFA program.
