|Description:||The Master of Applied Arts (MAA) program at ECI is an innovative professional degree that prepares students to engage in the expanding fields of art, design, and media in diverse sectors of culture and the creative industries. While students apply to study in one of three streams - Design, Media Arts, or Visual Arts - the program is designed to facilitate interaction between all students and faculty in a supportive atmosphere of collaboration that encourages investigation of hybrid and innovative forms of production and critical thinking.
This degree is a two-year full-time program with intake in the fall semester and a four-month internship between the first and second year. The core of the program focuses on promoting critical reflection and intellectual inquiry while developing the skills to excel in a variety of professional settings from museums, art galleries, and artist-run centres to creative industries, including animation, gaming and design studios, film and media-based organizations as well as a variety of new media companies.
