About Fine Arts at UVic
UVic’s Faculty of Fine Arts is BC’s only stand-alone fine arts faculty—which means you’ll be creating and learning in a specialized, dynamic academic community entirely dedicated to the pursuit of the arts. In Fine Arts, we believe you learn by doing, so you’ll be part of a like-minded group of diverse people experiencing hands-on training in every area.
With four buildings offering a full range of purpose-built facilities, you’re only limited by your creative ambitions in our departments of Art History & Visual Studies, Theatre, Visual Arts and Writing, plus our School of Music.
Within our faculty, we offer three live theatres, two concert halls, a recording studio, an art gallery and dedicated art-handling lab, our own coffee shop plus a full range of painting and sculptural studios, photo and technology labs, costume and production workshops, and interactive media studios. (which also holds the unique distinction of being Canada’s only All-Steinway School).
Meet current students & teachers
At our Nov 17 online open house, you can meet students and professors from all of our units. Learn how our programs can help you achieve your creative future and soon you’ll be counting yourself among our award-winning alumni—many of whom are among Canada’s arts leaders.
Whatever your creative path, UVic’s Faculty of Fine Arts offers a friendly, engaged community where curiosity, experimentation and exploration are the cornerstones of our learning environment.
In Fine Arts, you’ll develop the critical thinking and communications skills necessary to navigate and succeed in our rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected society. You’ll make your ideas come to life, and develop and hone your abilities, all while collaborating with peers from our various disciplines.
