About Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) University

Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University is wrapped in history , the distinctive stone, iron, concrete and brick facades of their Fountain Campus is one of Canada’s oldest independent cultural institutions. The university continues to be regarded as a principal centre for education and research in visual culture in North America. It has a long history of working with international artists, crafts persons and designers because of the value in cultural diversity. The university welcomes students from all over the world to study at NSCAD and provide study abroad opportunities for their full time students as well.

At the university, the students are educated to think critically, to balance academic issues with practical concerns in the studio, and to explore how the visual arts give meaning to both individual and community life. It is building on the strengths of it’s history, maintaining and intensifying traditional arts and crafts while capitalizing on the many new technologies shaping the world and human interaction. After an experimental foundation year, students gradually focus in order to become specialists in some aspect of art, craft, design or historical and critical studies.

NSCAD occupies three unique campuses in downtown, Halifax which is 200,000 square feet of heritage space on two sites in the heart of downtown Halifax, and 70,000 square feet at their new waterfront Port Campus. The Fountain campus is housed in the Historic Properties district, adjacent to the scenic boardwalks of Halifax Harbour. The Victorian terrace style is an interconnected row of 19 former merchant shops and warehouses bounded by Hollis and Duke Streets and the cobblestone Granville pedestrian terrace.
