The Faculty of Media+Art+Performance explores contemporary media, art and performance practices, and their histories and theories, in innovative and imaginative ways. Graduate programs offer core theoretical seminars, intensive hands on practices, and diverse courses taught by experienced faculty to facilitate individualized study programs. Research projects led by instructors provide training opportunities and funding. Support is also available through Graduate Studies Scholarships, Teaching Assistantships, and Graduate Student Assistantships. Our funded research initiatives include the Interactive Media and Performance (IMP) Labs, Regina Improvisation Studies Centre (RISC), and the Saskatchewan Partnership for Arts Development (SPAR). We host the program Artists-in-Residence in Socially Engaged Practice, in which visiting artists interact with students to develop professional skills and networks. Our Creative Technology Makerspace is a vibrant lab for community interaction. Regina is home to dynamic public galleries, artist run centres, private galleries, screening facilities, and exhibition and performance spaces — many of which can provide graduate level professional placements.


The Visual Arts MFA focuses on studio art production in and across mediums, and its contextualization within contemporary practice and critical discourse. The MFA Visual Arts culminates with a solo exhibition at Saskatchewan's largest public art gallery, preparing students for their lives as professional artists. Faculty expertise supports ceramics, drawing, painting, photo media, print media, sculpture, extended media practices, the histories of collecting, curating and museum studies, Indigenous art, and early modern European art. Our students work in spacious shared studios and have access to extensive production equipment and resources, including metal casting facilities, kilns, archival digital printers, a carpentry shop and UV silkscreen printing in a non-toxic environment.

The Department of Film teaches film and digital media in an interdisciplinary environment, preparing students to realize their paths as film and media artists, critics, historians, educators, curators and craftspeople. At the graduate level we offer the MFA in Media Production and the MA in Media Studies, taught by faculty actively engaged in scholarly and creative projects. Graduates have gone on to award winning careers across Canada and internationally. They work as independent filmmakers and producers, directors, screenwriters, editors, and cinematographers in series television and on national and international fiction, documentary and animation productions. Our grads have careers as festival programmers, researchers, archivists and educators. Film has 4K and HD video cameras, 16mm film cameras, a production studio, digital editing suites, audio post-production facilities and a photography darkroom.

New technologies, markets, and research methodologies require inventive approaches that respond to individual circumstances. Combining community and social engagement with diverse arts practices, Indigenous arts with curatorial theory, media studies with electronic music, performance-based practice with visual arts, bringing together creative technologies, or exploring new directions in culture and display in institutional settings—these are some of the ways our Interdisciplinary Studies graduates have formulated thesis-based or practice-based graduate projects into new careers. The Faculty of Media+Art +Performance collaborates with other faculty members from across the University in our Interdisciplinary Studies MFA and newly redesigned one-year MA programs.

The Theatre Department offers students the opportunity to work with experienced professionals in two state-of-the-art theatres, movement and rehearsal studios, design and CAD labs, and costume and carpentry shops. Students who have graduated with MFA degrees have explored directing, playwriting and dramaturgy, going on to achieve professional careers in their fields. We also participate actively in graduating students through Special Case MFAs and the Interdisciplinary Studies program where students have, for example, investigated playwriting; walking as performance; critical costume and gender identity; scenography; installation and performance; queer performativity; disability theatre; theatre and business administration; and conducting and design.

Opportunities for master's-level study in Music include: 1) Traditionally oriented programs: the MMus with concentration in one of Performance, Conducting or Composition and the MA in the areas of Musicology or Music Theory; 2) Music may also be combined with the Interdisciplinary MFA, in which music research may combine two or more of: creative technologies; music composition for multimedia; musicology; socially engaged performance practice; improvisation; and interdisciplinary approaches to solo performance or conducting.

FUNDING MAP may offer funding to incoming MA, MFA and PhD level applicants with 80% GPA.
