This Fine Arts Studies program is an integrated, bi-national program offered by a three-member consortium situated in Sault Ste. Marie: Algoma University, Lake Superior State University, and Sault College of Applied Arts and Technology. The program is designed and administered in such a way as to serve the region as a whole, to reflect the uniqueness of our northern heritage, to be international in scope and to integrate courses of study at both the college and university levels.

The fine arts degree is for students who have wide-ranging interests in fine arts, and who wish to explore and express their potential through following a personalized course of study. While students will invariably participate in a broad range of courses, they must select two main areas of focus (concentrations) from the following three: theater, visual arts and writing.

Fine arts have been an important aspect of the human experience since first recorded history; from African cave paintings to Greek dramas, from Beethoven symphonies to the writings of Canadian playwrights. From the study of fine arts we can gain an understanding of various cultures through their own indigenous means of expression. Furthermore, we can deepen our understanding of our own culture by participation in various contemporary art forms (drama, music, painting, writing etc.). Most important, by exploring our own creative potential, we can develop a better understanding of ourselves.
