The purpose of education and learning in the arts is life enhancing. They contribute to the whole quality of life. This recognition of the purpose of higher education in the development of our people, our society, and our economy is central to our vision. We encourage and enable all students to achieve the highest intellectual and creative potential and to achieve beyond their expectations. We have created a culture which demands disciplined thinking, supports curiosity, challenges existing ideas and helps to generate new ones.

Emily Carr University stimulates its students to develop new and innovative ways of thinking and creating. At the same time, we invite students to prepare themselves for life after school. Our curriculum is flexible, personal, multi-disciplinary and based on the learning needs of students. Emily Carr University is dedicated to fostering an educational environment that is professional, practice-oriented and at the same time rooted in history and critical theory.
