Event Description

Application deadline: March 15, 2013
The MA in Comparative Media Arts is at the forefront of an emergent intermedial approach to
the arts. A radical mutuality characterizes the relationships among the visual arts, visual culture,
performing arts, and art forms that incorporate reproducible and digital media. This program
thinks across the media arts in a comparative perspective that synthesizes the historical and
theoretical approaches of art history, cinema studies, performance studies, and studies of
computer‐based arts.
With its intimate scale, interdisciplinary design, and faculty of international reputation,
The School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU provides a rich environment for scholars of the
fine and performing arts. This MA will allow scholars to immerse themselves in an environment
of creative experimentation, working in parallel with students in the interdisciplinary MFA
program.
 
The MA in Comparative Media Arts prepares students for work as curators, cultural
programmers, arts administrators, arts writers, and other careers in the arts. It also prepares
students for a range of PhDs that study the fine and performing arts, including practice‐based
PhDs.
 
Program of study 
The MA in Comparative Media Arts is a four‐semester, seven‐course program, culminating in a
public symposium. The research methods course introduces methods appropriate to the
comparative study of the media arts, drawn from art history, cinema studies, studies of the
media arts, performance studies, and related disciplines. Seminars give students a strong
grounding in new developments in visual culture, cinema studies, digital art studies, and
performance studies. Students also take an elective from an array of courses across the
university, or the practicum in comparative media arts, in which students work on focused
projects in the local arts community. The research colloquium prepares students in research
presentation and professional development, including grant applications, teaching skills, and
revising for publication. In the extended essay students research in depth a topic in comparative
media arts and develop an original argument, with the goal of producing an essay suitable for
publication.
Application Process 
Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in visual culture, art history, cinema studies,
performance studies, cultural studies, communications, literary studies, or other degrees
focusing on the arts. Applications with Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees that include substantial
scholarly studies will also qualify.
