Guest instructors who are currently working in the field will be invited to lecture and teach, and an advisory board of industry professionals will oversee the program and help guide it.
Candidates will be selected according to their portfolio, letter of intent and individual interview. The registration deadline is December 14, 2007 for the winter session that begins on February 26, 2008. Tuition fees amount to $9,500 for Canadian students and $12,000 for international students.
