Message from the Associate Dean (Graduate & Research)


The Faculty of Media, Art and Performance offers challenging advanced programs at the graduate level that are designed to take you where you want to go professionally and personally. We are immensely proud of our graduates and their research achievements, and we warmly welcome your interest in studying with us, and participating in our vibrant Regina arts and culture scenes, while taking your place wherever you go as well-prepared citizens of the world.

Whether you're envisioning, or advancing, a career as an artist, cultural theorist, critic, historian, policy-maker, programmer, educator, curator or craftsperson, you will find your niche with MAP. We offer three paths to your PhD: a traditional thesis, a research-creation project, or a hybrid of both. You can also pursue an MA or MFA in Film or Visual Arts; an MA or MMus in Music; a Special Case MA or MFA in Theatre; or you can work across these disciplines, or across MAP and another Faculty, in pursuing an Interdisciplinary MA or MFA. MAP also provides several rich exhibition and presentation venues for our students on campus, including the 5th Parallel Gallery, the Shu-Box Theatre, the annual 3-Minute Thesis Competition, and the DRS: Doctoral Research Showcase.

Our professors, our facilities, and our staff and technicians will provide top-notch resources in supporting your development and vision. MAP professors are very well networked regionally, nationally and internationally. Many have received prestigious awards for their research, teaching and service to their various communities, and our graduate students are key to the lively discussions and talk-backs when faculty present their work throughout the academic year at the monthly MAP Presentation Series. Teaching and learning in MAP take place in great facilities. Our studios, theatres, labs, practice rooms, research pods, and office and meeting spaces are well-appointed, up-to-date, and always well-used. MAP staff and technical assistants are extremely well-versed in our programs and area infrastructure, and they help us make important contributions to your success.

FGSR—our Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research—offers travel funding in support of presenting your research at conferences and exhibition venues on the national stage and beyond, while MAP itself provides workshop opportunities for funding your studies at the national level, as well as internal scholarships, travel awards, and teaching and research assistantships.

It's my pleasure to serve as Associate Dean Graduate and Research, and to guide new and returning students through our doors as you map bright futures and new friendships. Welcome to grad studies in the Faculty of MAP!

Dr. Christine Ramsay
