Studies in Arts and Culture

Explore and apply the interdisciplinary production of arts and culture.

This is a well-rounded degree program that combines the best of the Faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and the Goodman School of Business, and features innovative projects like the creative publishing at the Small Walker Press. You will examine and relate elements of Visual Arts, Dramatic Arts, Music, Dance, Interactive Arts and Science, Business, History, Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Media and Communication Studies, Popular Culture, Film Studies, Sociology and Canadian Studies. Customize your program and professionalize hard and soft skills through experiential learning.

The concentration in Cultural Management including courses from the Goodman School of Business, is ideal for those wishing to work as cultural managers in diverse fields of arts and culture.

A co-operation between Studies in Arts and Culture (STAC), History and Geography/Tourism Studies, the concentration in Cultural Transmission and Heritage Studies engages students in cross-disciplinary curatorial projects.

The concentration in Languages, Arts and Culture allows you to combine language acquisition (French, German, Italian, Spanish) in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures with interdisciplinary work in arts and culture.

You may also choose to combine your degree in Studies in Arts and Culture with a second area of study. Service-learning or practicum experiences are available with professionals in the Niagara region.
