What will I learn?

Overview

Sudbury is Northern Ontario’s hub for the development of a career in motion pictures, music, theatre, and all things expressive and artistic.

Prepare for the job market with more practice-based than theory-based education. Learn a solid foundation in the history and traditions of your art, along with the tools to navigate the financial and commercial aspects of your career.

Examine the creative expression of our intellectual, emotional, and physical worlds, and develop skills in communication, aesthetics, interpretation, critical thinking, management, organization and leadership.

Join a growing industry that has benefited from more than $100 million in direct and indirect spending on 72 theatrical and TV projects, and created over 3500 jobs since 2004.
