Welcome Message for School of Fine Art and Music

Welcome to the School of Fine Arts & Music (SOFAM) at the University of Guelph.   In SOFAM, art is not just something you learn about, it’s something that you do, whether as practitioner, scholar, critic, teacher or in a host of other jobs that studying art might lead you to.  Our BA programs in Music, Studio Art and Art History, and the MFA in Studio Art and MA in Art History and Visual Culture, are renowned for their excellence and for the success of their graduates.    SOFAM curricula in all areas, delivered by acclaimed faculty, are designed to combine critical thought and creative practice with crucial opportunities for experiential learning.   The result is that SOFAM graduates are working as artists, musicians, art historians, art and music teachers, gallery administrators, curatorial assistants, and are making their mark in numerous other creative practices and cultural industries.
