Emily Carr University of Art + Design

Emily Carr University of Art + Design, located in Vancouver, Canada, is seeking inspired and dedicated cultural practitioners for the Master of Applied Arts (MAA) 2012/2013 academic year. The MAA provides a climate for creativity that prepares students to become professional creators who take risks, think unconventionally, foster change and are key contributors to the global cultural economy.

Program

The MAA program adopts an interdisciplinary framework to support emergent forms of cultural production. Courses in research, critical theory and studio practice integrate methodologies that span diverse art forms and learning models. The program gives students the flexibility to explore, challenge and expand their creative knowledge in rigorous exchange with core faculty who are leading artists and scholars in their fields.

Masters cohorts are chosen with careful attention to the combination of attributes that each individual brings, resulting in a balanced and dynamic discourse among peers. Students will benefit from Emily Carr’s Research and Industry Office and Intersections Digital Studios, which are hubs for expanding research innovation that build industry alliances and customize internships. Centres of research include: health design, stereoscopic 3D, social and interactive media.

The MAA is grounded in the principles of a sustainable society: environmental responsibility, social justice, and community engagement.
