Bachelor of Arts in Art, Performance and Cinema Studies Simon Fraser University




Course info


This program studies the fine and performing arts, with a focus on visual culture. You’ll start with a history of the arts and move on through critical theory, thematic topics or curating. This degree will prepare you for a variety of jobs in the arts, film, or a graduate degree.

Art, Performance and Cinema Studies in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology is one of the performing and fine arts programs in the School for Contemporary Arts. This program is offered at the Vancouver campus.

Within the fine and performing arts, there are lively debates about the meaning and significance of individual artworks, as well as their relationships to audiences and to other forms of culture. The program investigates art and culture with attention to the historically changing forms of class, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality and aesthetics. It provides students with the knowledge, research and communication skills needed to participate effectively in contemporary debates about art and culture. The core program includes two introductory studio courses from a multidisciplinary range of choices; these provide the experience of the creative process in dance, music, theatre, video or visual art. The program is interdisciplinary, but also provides a knowledge of and sensitivity to the distinctive qualities of specific art forms. Course selection beyond the program’s core is flexible and students are encouraged to shape their studies in the school, or in the University at large.
