Overview

Bachelor of Fine Arts (General)

The Bachelor of Fine Arts General at Manitoba is designed to provide a balanced learning of theory and practice. 

Studio courses focus on the production of art and design, through studio practice, related theory, and the technical education necessary to become an educator, or a professional creative artist in fine art or applied fields.

All undergraduate students take first and second-year studios in experimental and foundation studies, followed by more intensive study in specific fine art and design disciplines beginning third year. 

Students graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and deep disciplinary knowledge along with strong critical thinking skills and the agility to problem solve and connect the dots across a wide range of fields.

First-year field trip

This required course for all School of Art students takes place each October, supervised by faculty members and the advising office. 

Students travel to Regina and Saskatoon, visiting several art galleries and other points of interest.
