Biographical history

Courses in Art were offered by the Faculty of Arts and Science until the Department of Fine Arts and Fine Arts Education was created in 1967 within the newly formed Faculty of Arts and Science. This department included Art, Drama, and Music. In 1968, Art, Drama and Music became separate units. The Department offers a BA in Art History, BFA, BFA/BEd and an MFA in Visual Studies. The Department of Art is committed to the study and practice of the visual arts as these relate to educational practice and theory, creative art making and to the understanding of the art in its diverse historical and cultural settings. In April 2010, all departments from the Faculty of Fine Arts were combined with those of the Faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences and Communication and Culture into the Faculty of Art. Heads of the Department of Art: A.M. Brown, 1967-1968; E.M. Dodd, 1968-1973; V. Brosz, 1973-1979; L. Cromwell, 1979-1983; J. Polzer, 1982-1983; P.A. Lloyd, 1983-1986; E.M. Dodd, 1986-1987 (Acting); E. Cameron, 1987-1998; G.M. Hushlak, 1998-2005; A. Nishimua, 2005-2009; J.R. Leblanc, 2010-
