Masters of Fine Arts
University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus
Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program at UBC’s Okanagan campus in Kelowna, BC provides students with opportunities to develop sophisticated production skills within a variety of media.
The MFA program includes state-of-the-art production with 21st-century digital, printmaking, sculpture and photography studio facilities. While in residence, each student has a studio space to work in an artistic environment to explore, share and develop their own artistic community in relationship to a dynamic cohort of fellow MFA students. The MFA program also allows for students to explore non-traditional community or collaborative creative practices.
There are three areas of specialization to choose from: Visual Arts; Creative Writing; Interdisciplinary Studies.
All three areas share an MFA Colloquium course that helps to develop bonds between differing areas while promoting innovative and interdisciplinary artistic opportunities. Creative Writing and Visual Arts specializations have focused disciplinary production courses to develop advanced skills in their areas. The Interdisciplinary Studies specialization allows students interested in Visual Arts, Creative Writing, Performance or Curation to explore these methods of production while engaging in a secondary, complimentary academic area of study.
