There are two ways to complete the Fine Arts Program at Langara. 

Full time program:

Students take 4-6 classes per term.  This is a rigorous, full time program and students should expect to budget a minimum of 4 hours homework time for each studio class taken.  Some studios (ceramics, sculpture and printmaking) require working in the studio rather than at home.

Part time program:

Students take the program at their own pace, typically 2-3 classes per term.  Most Advanced studios start in the Fall and continue in the Spring.  Students starting 2nd year in the Spring term can choose between several stand-alone 3 credit 2nd year studio offerings as well as FINA 2180 Professional Practice to complete their diploma requirements. 

NOTE:  Only 2 or 3 Fine Arts studio classes are offered in the summer term.  Many Fine Arts students catch up on English and Art History requirments over the summer.
