OCAD Graduate Studies Fair

OCAD Graduate Studies Fair

On Wednesday Oct. 9th, the Critical Media Lab participated in a graduate studies fair at OCAD University in Toronto. We met with potential grad students there and spoke about the three MA streams in the English Department at Waterloo. There was particular interest in the Experimental Digital Media Program (XDM), which seemed well-suited to students pursuing art-making and digital design streams at OCAD. Many students were surprised that Waterloo had Masters programs in Digital Media and Visual Rhetoric, but were intrigued by the possibility of doing such a program within a Humanities context. The only drawback was that we didn’t have time to check out Ai Wei Wei’s Forever Bicycles art exhibit at nearby Nathan Philips Square.
