Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies

In FCCS, we examine our cultural history and pose critical questions with a view to building a creative future. Our diverse programs offer students the opportunity to create art in a variety of media and to reflect critically on the creative and cultural productions of others. Our work combines traditional scholarly and hands-on skills with contemporary technologies, and often merges individuals’ talents through collaborative endeavours. Our students develop sophisticated analytical skills and the capacity to weave together ideas from various fields of study, addressing complex issues affecting culture and society. In doing so, our students become agents of change and builders of global understanding in areas such as social justice, the environment, media, new technologies, languages, literature, culture, creative writing, or the visual and performing arts.

Join us in our vision to cultivate the next generation of creative, critically minded, and engaged citizens.
