Named after the legendary landscape painter of the Pacific Northwest, Emily Carr University of Art + Design is more than a world-class centre for fine arts education. The university offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in fine art, media art and design, and each concentration aims for a healthy mix of in-studio learning and theory.

“Emily Carr is not like most universities,” says Ron Burnett, who is stepping down as president after 22 years. “We get to know each other as individual artists and creators.” In keeping with the school’s vision, the campus houses research centres in health design and interactive and social media, and is one of the few institutions in Canada with full stereoscopic 3D film and animation equipment and a focus on virtual reality. In third year, students can go abroad to study at one of 70 art and design institutes, including the Universität der Künste Berlin.

The main campus had sat among the galleries and craft shops of downtown Vancouver’s Granville Island since 1980, but in fall 2017 the university moved to a new purpose-built campus in Vancouver’s industrial east end. The $122-million, 285,000-sq.-foot Great Northern Way campus in False Creek Flats provides a spacious new home for ECUAD’s growing enrolment. With its light-filled studios and state-of-the-art facilities, the new campus is designed to encourage new and innovative ways of thinking and creating.

Standout Programs

Communication Design: Students learn the skills required to develop their own design practice, studying cultural, historical, technical, ecological and theoretical issues; areas of specialization include print design, interactivity and motion graphics.

Industrial Design: This program combines theory, research and practical knowledge. Students consider the aesthetic, material and ergonomic needs of the public along with the social, economic and ecological factors that influence the design process.

Illustration: This program is rooted in the spirit of cultural inquiry; students explore varied technical approaches and a broad range of pictorial strategies, including drawing, painting and printmaking, as well as learning to push the boundaries of contemporary illustration.

Cool Courses

Telling Story: Photo & Narrative: This course studies narrative structures to examine how photography is used to tell a story. Students develop photographic skills and explore oral, written, photographic and digital media.

Writing Criticism: This course examines the evolution of art criticism, teaching students the skills necessary to actively engage in public discourse about art and design.
