SoCA at UFV encompasses the Art History, Media Arts, Theatre, and Visual Arts areas. By combining digital technologies and media with traditional arts practice and performance, SoCA aims to serve as a cultural hub and centre of creative innovation in the Fraser Valley.
UFV's Bachelor of Media Arts prepares you for creative production in digital and interactive media, one of the fastest growing industries in B.C. today. The program is designed to equip you with computing and digital design skills, as well as the skills to work in creative teams.
Graduate with an array of skills that employers—both inside and outside the arts—demand and that are essential for our knowledge economy that values collaboration, creative problem solving, communication skills, and flexibility. Theatre doesn’t only teach you about theatre—how to read a script, hang lights, or stage manage a production—it also gives you transferable skills that prepare you for careers in a number of fields.
Study in the creative arts yields not only innovative thinking but also cultural and economic benefits to society. Thoughtful visual expression enriches our shared experience—revealing beauty, encouraging inclusion and diversity, and sharpening critical insight. In the Visual Arts area at the UFV School of Creative Arts, we encourage each student to develop their own expressive and analytical abilities, as they prepare for future careers as professional artists, designers, curators, educators, and more.
