Combined Degree - Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) & Bachelor of Arts (Honours) - Art History and Studio Arts (EA) at Western University : Tuition Fee: $33,526.00 CAD / Year (Scholarship Available)

Unlike traditional business schools that expect students to choose a specialization early on, the 2+2 program structure of the Ivey Honours of Business Administration (HBA) offers students the freedom to explore their academic interests before choosing their career options. In the first two years, students can study in any faculty or program. This opportunity to gain new life experiences ensures that HBA students and their classmates bring diverse and more seasoned perspectives to their business education. The combination of a deep knowledge of business and another academic or professional field makes for a strong career foundation. Students can apply their first two years of university study at Western to two degrees.

Students in this program will have the option to complete a four year Honours Bachelor of Business Administration or to complete a combined degree with an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (HBA) or to study for five years and combine the HBA with an Honours Bachelor of Arts. While in their first year at Ivey (HBA 1), students will apply for one of the combined degree programs. If admitted, they will spend their fourth and fifth years of university studying a combination of business courses and required courses in their second degree area. In five years, they will have completed two degrees.

The Department of Visual Arts at Western University offers three areas of study: Art History; Museum and Curatorial Studies; & Studio Art. Students will learn in small classrooms and gain hands-on experience in their chosen field. In addition to lectures, seminars, and studio courses, these programs are complemented by experiential learning opportunities including practicums, internships, and field trips to art galleries, museums, heritage sites, and cultural institutions.

The Department's undergraduate classes and final fourth-year practicum courses allow students to explore and create within supportive and inclusive environments. Studio practicum students have dedicated spaces and are mentored year-round with the opportunity to work towards a final group exhibition in a professional gallery setting. The curriculum is designed to give students a thorough grounding in comparative visual cultural analysis of imagery across a wide range of international historical and contemporary practices. Students work alongside award winning and internationally recognized faculty, artists, art historians, and curators, as well as highly-skilled technical staff. 

The faculty consists of leading Canadian and international scholars who have active research and artistic careers. The Art History faculty publishes with top academic presses and journals. Western's Studio Art faculty have been featured in such venues as the National Gallery of Canada and the Power Plant, as well as prominent international exhibitions in such centres as Vienna, Sydney, and New York. Accolades include two recent Distinguished University Professorships, Hellmuth Prize, Sobey Award nomination, features in Canadian Art magazine and numerous Social Science and Humanities Research Grants.

Study art and visual culture in its social and political context. Western’s Art History program focuses on global networks of cultural exchange and is committed to interdisciplinary approaches informed by critical theory. This field of study develops cross-cultural understanding and a global perspective from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, in Mesoamerican, Hispanic American, Canadian, and Contemporary Art, Architecture, and Design, as well as Photography, Film and New Media.
