- Western University has announced the launch of a new multidisciplinary program called Creative Arts and Production (CAP).
- The four-year program Creative Arts and Production (CAP) focuses on the three Cs: creativity, collaboration, and community.
- Three faculties contribute to Western University’s new program: arts and humanities, information and media studies, and music.
Western University’s new program is provided by three faculties: arts and humanities, information and media studies, and music.
The program was developed in response to students’ expressed need for learning experiences that would push them to think critically and creatively.
The initiative comes a year after the United Nations General Assembly designated 2021 as the International Year of the Creative Economy for Sustainable Development, highlighting the growing importance of creativity in addressing global concerns.
CAP students will enroll in one of the three home faculties and study toward a degree that combines theory and production through a variety of elective courses in the arts, media studies, and music.
This past year, first- and second-year CAP courses have been offered in preparation for the degree’s official launch in the fall.
Students currently enrolled in the pre-requisite course, Introduction to Creative Arts, can now apply to this program for enrollment in September 2022.
