The Dean of Arts and Science has invoked a temporary suspension to admissions to the Bachelor of Fine Art (Visual Art) program. Accordingly, we are not offering admissions to the program for September 2023.

Visual Arts at Queen's is undergoing a change. Based on external review and consultations, the Dean created The Visual Art Council Advisory Group and tasked them to undertake the development of a new program in Visual Arts. For more information and committee progress-please visit the following website :



A total of 120 units are required to complete a four year BFA Honours degree. Sixty of these units will be in Studio, 12 supporting units will be in Art History, and another 48 units will be electives in any subject you wish to study.

Please visit the Faculty of Arts and Science current course calendar for the most up-to-date listing of courses offered.
