As one of Canada’s four innovative universities dedicated to art, craft and design, we’re proud to play an important role in our country’s visual culture. AUArts graduates have gained significant national and international reputations as artists, designers and creative leaders.

Formerly Alberta College Art + Design (ACAD), AUArts is a place where students can continue their education, earn an undergraduate degree or achieve their MFA. AUArts is located in Calgary, Alberta. Close to stunning mountain parks and full of arts and culture, Calgary is a safe, sunny city with a small-town heart.
