General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Katherine Johnston Marilyn I. Walker 337A The Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture, part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, is designed for students who wish to gain a critical view as well as experiential knowledge of contemporary culture from the perspectives of observer, creator, performer or cultural agent. Our aim is to contribute to the vitality of the arts by developing informed audiences, practitioners or critics who are engaged by interdisciplinary practices and discourses in creative work, whether dance, video, music, theatre or the visual arts. The Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture is dedicated to developing a context in which the contemporary artist, performer, critic, curator or cultural agent can examine pragmatic and theoretical approaches to understanding the creative process and its cultural implications. In consultation with the Director, students are encouraged to organize their program of study around one of the following emphases: arts and cultural management, intermedia and interdisciplinarity, and cultural critique and agency. As part of their Studies in Arts and Culture Honours degree program, students may complete a Concentration in Cultural Management offered in co-operation with the Faculty of Business, a Concentration in Languages, Arts and Cultures in co-operation with the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures or a Concentration in Cultural Transmission and Heritage Studies in co-operation with the Department of History and the Department of Geography and Tourism Studies. Students intending to work in the public sector for culture in Canada are encouraged to have a working facility in the other official language.
