The MA program is a course-based degree designed to prepare students for curatorial work, art consultation, heritage programs, cultural journalism, secondary school teaching, and doctoral research.
MA students will take six seminars (or three full-course equivalents [3.0 FCE]). Full-time students can complete the program in two terms by taking three seminars (1.5 FCE) in each of the two terms.
We have a limited number of places for students who wish to complete the MA part-time. Part-time students have six years to complete the degree. If you wish to apply for the part-time MA, you must indicate this on the application form.
Students in the MA program are not assigned a supervisor and do not complete a thesis.
