Graduate Research Training

RUIAC, in partnership with Wilin, offers a Master of Fine Arts (Indigenous Arts and Cultures) by Research program (18 months) and a Doctor of Philosophy (Indigenous Arts and Cultures) by Research program (36 months).

Our graduate candidates pursue either practice-led or traditional research programs with topics ranging from song and dance, archives, theatre, dance, to visual arts.

Supporting independent research programs, our graduate cohort meets weekly throughout each semester as part of the Indigenous Graduate Research Training Program (IGRTP) to share research progress, participate in writing and critical reading groups, and attend guest seminar presentations.

In addition to regular public research seminars featuring leaders in Indigenous arts research, RUIAC and the Wilin Centre host an annual Symposium on Indigenous Arts and Cultures, Winter and Summer Graduate Colloquia, workshops, and collaborator visits.
