MA Program in Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories

Call for Applications

The OCAD University's programme in Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories prepares students to investigate the breadth and complexity of today's creative cultural activity. Artists and designers in the 21st century often employ unconventional and hybrid strategies that can challenge traditional forms of analysis. Examinations of contemporary art, new media and design therefore require flexible and creative conceptual approaches. Through historical contextualization, scholarly rigour, and cross-disciplinary methods, this programme supports the production of pioneering research into newly emerging art and design practices. This academic programme offers students three fields of specialization:

  • Contemporary Art History,
  • Design History,
  • New Media Art History.

While students may take courses in any of the specializations, one field will be selected as the focus for the degree. Interested candidates are invited to apply by 16 January 2012.
