The Alberta College of Art + Design

Founded in 1926, ACAD has been a major contributor to Canada’s visual culture in the 20th century, with many of its graduates gaining significant national and international reputations as artists, designers and creative leaders. With an annual grant of just over $12 million, an annual budget of $20.6 million and employing over 200 staff, ACAD provides accredited degree standard education and learning opportunities to 1,200 students enrolled in full- and part-time studies in a wide range of art, craft and design studio disciplines.

This year marks a major milestone for ACAD. In addition to offering credentialed undergraduate degrees in a variety of program areas, the College celebrates the first Masters of Fine Art in Craft Media graduates, making it the only college in the Province to offer and confer university-level undergraduate and now, graduate degree programs. acad.ca
