Emily Carr University’s community adds exceptional value to critical inquiry, sustainability, social practice, and cultural development.
Established in 1925, we are the only specialized, accredited, public, post-secondary university in British Columbia solely devoted to education and research in the creative sector.
Emily Carr University's Great Northern Way campus is Canada’s first purpose-built university for arts + design education and research. We know that this is a highly unique opportunity, and continuously invite new ideas for collaboration in the expansion of our reach, contribution, facilities and creative citizenry.
The intersection of art, design and media allows us to explore and build unlimited capacity to forge vibrant social ventures and relationships in service to community, culture and economy. Our curriculum, technologies, and research foster transformational partnerships and real-world opportunities for all of our students.
