The Master of Visual and Media Arts program at Université du Québec à Montréal encourages the development of an artistic practice and critical thinking about the current problems and issues affecting visual and media arts, as well as art education. While touching on several complementary research-creation approaches, the program offers a multidisciplinary framework that favours exchanges between the various artistic or educational practices.

Students have access to personal studio spaces and exceptional infrastructures in all art disciplines, whether video, sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, print or digital art. They are also welcome to use an outstanding exhibition and experimentation space (CDEx) in the heart of downtown Montreal, where they can present their research-creation projects or end-of-study exhibitions.

About the program

• Each year, students have access to over $120,000 in scholarships—notably the $55,000 Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Arts awarded to a program graduate—four reserved instructor positions and paid involvement in support of our many workshops and research groups.

• Several of the program's graduates have received the Sobey Art Award, the most prestigious contemporary art award for young artists in Canada.

• The program is open to exchanges abroad, namely at national schools of fine arts in several cities in France, at the Studio national des arts contemporains Le Fresnoy in Tourcoing and the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris.

• Duration of the program: two years, full-time; four years, part-time.

• Leads to a Master of Arts (M.A.).
