Bachelor of Fine Arts Fibre

Alberta University of the Arts

Alberta University of the Arts

Dream. Study. Create. Repeat. Welcome to life at AUArts.

AUArts is where creativity thrives. It's a haven for makers, designers, and artists. A testing ground for a future shaped by your unique vision and drive. A place where just about anything is possible.

AUArts offers the degree programs:

  • Bachelor of Design (BDes)
  • Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)
  • Masters of Fine Arts (MFA)

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.

MFA in Craft Media is a collaborative, cross-disciplinary, studio-based program that gives you the freedom to explore possibilities, push limits, and reimagine your practice. The core of the program is practice-led, autonomous research. Students may concentrate upon a specific discipline: Ceramics, Fibre, Glass or Jewellery + Metals, or they may augment their primary craft dicipline to build an interdicipilinary or hybrid program of study. During the course of their study, students may initiate mentorships with faculty from AUArt's other program areas, such as Print Media, Drawing, Media Arts and Design.
