Emily Carr University of Art + Design, located in Vancouver invites applications for the Low Residency model of its Master of Applied Arts (MAA) degree. The Low Residency program suits practicing artists and working professionals who need to stay based in their home communities, but who wish to undertake a stimulating and rewarding course of study in a thriving learning environment alongside their professional commitments.

The Low Residency MAA program is delivered through a flexible model that blends inspiring residencies in Vancouver—one of the world’s most livable cities—with Emily Carr’s innovative and interactive online learning culture.

The program is structured around three consecutive intensive July residencies on campus in Vancouver. Internationally recognized award-winning faculty leads intensive courses in studio production, critical theory, and arts research. Students explore, challenge and expand their creative knowledge in a rich studio environment.

Periods between residencies are underpinned by a rigorous online curriculum, allowing students to build and expand on the experience of each summer. Working in their home communities, students develop Virtual Studios to support their studio production in a flexible schedule of real-time group critiques and on-going forum discussions.
