Established in 1925, and ranked Canada’s top university of art and design, Emily Carr University of Art & Design is the only specialized, accredited, public, post-secondary university in British Columbia solely devoted to education and research in the creative sector and its associated knowledge economy. With its home base in Vancouver –“a young, vibrant city, known for its verve, beauty and unparalleled livability”– the university feels that its location reflects its core belief: “Creativity will always be our greatest natural resource, individually and collectively. Inspired by this belief, our programs offer undergraduate, graduate degrees, and applied research in the fields of visual arts, media arts, and design, as well as professional certificates, pre-university, and lifelong learning in these areas.
”Within its four faculties: Culture + Community; Design + Dynamic Media; Visual + Material Arts; and Graduate Studies Emily Carr University’s artists, designers and academics work collectively across mediums and technologies reflecting the diversity and fluidity of contemporary and sustainable practices in art, design and media.”
