The Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture will be at Open House, April 02

UPDATE April 3, 2023: We had a very successful Open House at the University and at the School.  It was such an excellent opportunity to meet our prospective students and to speak in detail about our programs and your opportunities to learn with us.

For those of you still hoping to apply, please be aware of these deadlines, copied from this page of the academic calendar:

Application for admission should be made as early as possible. Application forms must be received by June 1 for most full-time programs and August 1 for part-time studies to ensure consideration for September registration. International applicants intending to study on a Study Permit should apply no later than April 1. Students applying after this date, who are subsequently admitted, may be required to register late and pay the late registration fee.

Please see this page for more information about application processes, to learn about which programs are still receiving applications, and to submit an application directly to Brock University:

The Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture is still receiving applications for f/t and p/t studies.
Contact us at if you have any questions.

Plan to visit the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts and Brock University for this year’s Open House on April 2, 2023.

David Vivian, Director of the Centre and a professor in the Department of Dramatic Arts will be situated at the MIWSFPA from 11:00 to 4:00 pm, along with the Chairs and other representatives of all the programs at the MIWSFPA, the backbone of the Studies in Arts and Culture program. Because courses in Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Centre for Digital Humanities, English, History, and Canadian Studies, are also an important part of the STAC program, we suggest you also visit those units situated on main campus.
