Mount Allison is a highly respected small undergraduate institution. With 11 full and part-time faculty and technical staff and approximately 120 students, the Department of Fine Arts offers a BFA and BA with majors and minors in studio art and art history, with studio courses in drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, open media and sculpture. In 2014, the Department of Fine Arts moved to the Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts, a new purpose-built facility on the Mount Allison campus. A wide diversity of film processes, lens–based platforms and state of the art digital imaging tools provide the opportunity for a rare depth of inquiry for undergraduate students. An important support to the Department on campus is the Owens Art Gallery, with a program of contemporary and historical exhibitions and visiting artists’ presentations.

Mount Allison acknowledges, honours, and respects that the land named Sackville, NB is part of the unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People who are the historic inhabitants, custodians, and dwellers on the land where our University is built and confirms its commitment to strengthening relationships with all Indigenous people.

Mount Allison is committed to diversity and inclusiveness. We encourage applications from members of racialized communities, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual and gender identities. We seek candidates with qualifications and knowledge to contribute specifically to the further diversification of our campus community.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents are given priority. Canadians and permanent residents should indicate their citizenship status in their application.
