NSCAD University (Media Arts Division)

One of North America’s first art schools, NSCAD University is also one of its finest. Founded in 1887 by renowned world adventurer Anna Leonowens, NSCAD has been led by such art luminaries as Arthur Lismer, Garry Neill Kennedy, and Paul Greenhalgh. Our Victorian-era campus in Halifax’s waterfront district is one of a kind, with a major expansion underway.

The Media Arts Division offers courses in photography, film, sound, installation, performance, video, interactive and web media and printed matter. Undergraduate degree programs include a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in photography, film or media arts, and an Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Fine Arts, combining media arts courses with programming from other divisions.

The Media Arts Division’s studios, darkrooms and edit suites occupy a variety of sites on campus, and some facilities are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The photo and media arts labs are housed in the main Granville campus; the film program’s facilities are located in the historic Alliance Atlantis Academy Building, a short walk away.

The film program offers students an opportunity to explore the practice, history, theory and analysis of film production and film art. The program combines extensive course options in film production techniques with an academic overview to the history and theory of film arts. The film program provides students with a broad understanding of the film production process, as well as the opportunity to develop their own projects.
