Undergraduate

Students in a first year drawing class

The Fine Arts Department offers two Undergraduate Programs: Studio practice (the making of art) and Visual Culture (the study of art history, film and the way we see the world).  Students can also participate in co-op through Waterloo’s Arts and Business program with a Fine Arts Honours.

If you have any questions about our program, please contact:

  • Karin Staley (519-888-4567 x30372), Administrative Coordinator for Undergraduate Studies
  • Bojana Videkanic (519-888-4567 x32614), Fine Arts Associate Chair of Undergraduate Studies

Fine Arts also offers students the opportunity for hands-on experience through workshops, community art programs and experiential learning.  Visiting artist talks are scheduled throughout the year, and there are two galleries located within the Fine Arts building.

Students can also study abroad, either for a term through the international exchange program, or for a week with the study abroad courses (FINE 293 or 393).  The department also offers short trips to special events and galleries in places such as Toronto, Buffalo, New York and Chicago.

Society of Fine Arts (SOFA)

SOFA is the departmental student organisation. SOFA encourages each student to become involved. Elections to SOFA are held each year in March.  Watch for announcements of their meetings.
