Electives

Enhance your degree . . . and your life

Ever taken a course where you study — and play — video games? What about the acting experience, public speaking, humour writing, art forgery, or the cultural impact of film music or costume history?

Each of our five departments offers an exciting range of electives designed to broaden your creative experience. From Music and Writing to Theatre, Visual Arts and Art History & Visual Studies, most of our courses are designed as hands-on experiential learning opportunities — like Vikes Band, where you play live game-day music, Magazine Production, where you conceive of and create your own magazine, or photography & video art, where you put your skills to use behind the camera.

Other courses take a broad approach to cultural studies — like the Asian identity in popular culture or Indigenous Peoples and Music — and look at shifts in society and artistic practice and production over hundreds of years.

Whatever your interest or program, Fine Arts has an elective that will enhance your degree and your life.
