OCAD U offers students the opportunity to follow a path that crosses disciplinary boundaries in several ways:
2) Minors are available in more than a dozen disciplinary fields and allow students to add a secondary field of study to their overall program.
3) Thematic interdisciplinary Minors draw courses from all subject areas at OCAD U.
4) Interdisciplinary courses are thematically based and often team-taught by professors from two different faculties.
minor in Aboriginal Visual Culture is contemporary practice, theory and expression in First Nations, Métis and Inuit art and design in Canadian and international contexts. This minor integrates Aboriginal perspectives into course syllabi and places Aboriginal faculty in the studios and classrooms.
The minor in Digital Media offers students in-depth instruction in leading contemporary critical theories and art and design practices in digital media. Students develop critical and production skills to produce creative interventions in digitally mediated spaces, digital artworks, and prototypes for processes, interactions, objects, devices and environments.
The minor in On-Screen Media offers an interdisciplinary approach to a range of audiovisual media that supports innovation and leading edge creativity through its integral multimedia structure. It is designed as a site for interdisciplinary and transmedia discourse and production innovations that encompass film, video and digital media concerns with screen concept, sequence, narrative and storytelling.
The minor in Wearable Technology draws together an understanding of sensor and wireless technologies, fabrication skills in electronics and material arts, and an understanding of the sociology of the body to open possibilities for artists and designers to new experiences with technology. This program takes a holistic, experimental and concept-led approach to the subject matter integrating science, art, design, craft, technology, fashion and philosophy enabling the student to conceive, design, develop and fabricate basic working prototypes and art works.
