The VISA program is designed to focus on the intellectual and creative development of the individual. Studio courses provide a challenging environment to study design concepts, drawing, painting and interdisciplinary art using installation, video, photography and digital media as a basis for creative practice. As well, art history courses provide the critical framework to understanding the development of Western Art and contemporary thought. This combination of practical and theoretical studies provides students with a maximum of creative freedom within a supportive academic environment of small classes. Detailed program information can be found in the Department of Visual Arts entry in the Brock University Calendar, and the Visual Arts Timetable.
The Concurrent BA/BEd Program, in which students can focus on Visual Arts as a teaching subject at the same time as they are studying for a Bachelor in Education, is detailed in the University Calendar entry for the Faculty of Education.
The BSc (Honours) in Computer Science and Visual Arts is a combined degree tailored to students who are interested in programming, software development and digital media. A detailed description of this degree program can be found in the University calendar entry for Computer Science.
