The graduate programs in Interdisciplinary Programs in MAP include a studies-based Master of Arts (MA); a practice-based Master of Fine Arts (MFA); and an Interdisciplinary PhD in Media and Artistic Research with three possible paths: Path A: Research on the Arts; Path B: Research in the Arts; and Path C: Research Through the Arts. In all cases, students are required to complete projects which integrate knowledge from two or three distinct traditional disciplines, one of which must be a MAP discipline (i.e.: film, media production, media studies, music, theatre, visual arts) or area (i.e.: creative technologies).

It is the philosophy of our program that traditional skills and specializations are usefully augmented and contextualized by a more traditional fine arts perspective and a contemporary cross-disciplinary approach. As society moves towards information economies, cultural and entertainment sectors are rapidly emerging as driving forces in change. In this environment, there is an opportunity to expand beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries to the areas of creative technologies and science; social history; pedagogy; and consciousness and identity. The graduate program in Interdisciplinary Studies in MAP is designed to accommodate students who are motivated to pursue innovative projects in a rigorous intellectual environment that is supported by a flexible framework of coursework and an expansive network of research links to the university community.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Students entering the Master of Arts program must hold a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited university or a similar recognized qualification from a comparable institution. Students entering the Master of Fine Arts program should in most cases hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts or a Bachelor of Music. Qualified applicants will be considered for admission to the program on the basis of academic standing and a proposal leading to an MA thesis or an MFA project. This proposal must clearly demonstrate the need for supervision in more than one area of knowledge and must indicate the availability of resources and supervision in these areas. In addition to the proposed program, applicants should submit appropriate supporting material (portfolio, sample of scholarly writing, etc.) and a proposed format for their graduation project. An audition and/or interview may be required. Once students have begun course work a more detailed, formal proposal will be submitted to the supervisors and IDS Graduate Committee for approval.
    Additional Admission Requirements:
    • Letter(s) of Reference
    • Resume/Curriculum Vitae
    • Statement of Research Interests
    • Portfolio
