Alberta University of Arts
Alberta University of the Arts (AUArts) is a community of thinkers, shapers, makers and risk takers.
We are students, faculty, staff and alumni rich in diversity of culture and thought, challenged to fearlessly explore what moves us, drives us and implores us to see the world differently.
Formerly Alberta College of Art and Design, we are dedicated to innovative and emerging art, craft and design programs. For nearly 100 years, AUArts has educated in ways that test the boundaries of common thought and we celebrate 11 Governor General’s Award winners amongst our faculty and alumni.
Alberta University of the Arts has five Schools of learning: Visual Art, Craft and Emerging Media, Communication Design, and Critical and Creative Studies offering undergraduate BFA and BDes degrees, and a graduate MFA, plus the School of Continuing Education and Professional Development.
Our studio-based education model introduces learners to a community of passionate minds, provocative thinkers, ambitious doers and brave creators.
