Undergraduate Studies

OCAD U delivers specialized, discipline-based education in an interdisciplinary context, integrating studio learning with historical, critical and scientific inquiry. Curriculum has more breadth and depth than any other fine arts program in Canada. Liberal studies courses explore the theories and ideas behind art and design practice, providing historical and critical context to studio work in art and design. These courses equip students with the analytical skills they need to execute ideas within the studio. Here, students sharpen their capacity to think critically and creatively. They also learn to write well.
