Queen’s suspends admissions to BFA program


Queen’s University has reportedly suspended admissions to its Bachelor of Fine Art program for the next two years. Global News states that the program—which was also suspended in 2011 due to a lack of funding—is currently plagued by issues related to its staffing, enrolment, and structure. “It’s built in blocks that [require] students to enroll in one large class each semester,” said Queen’s Associate Dean of Arts and Science Warren Mabee. “That makes it difficult for students who want to take internships or exchanges [… or] who are looking to combine their program with other programs on campus.” A record of the Queen’s Faculty of Arts and Science’s faculty board meeting in December highlights some of the past recommendations made for reforming the program for sustainable success and discusses what a more enriched visual arts program could look like.
