Montreal, one of the world's largest francophone cities, is home to Concordia, an anglophone university located in its downtown core. We offer artistic research degrees more closely aligned with European models. Annual tuition for international students in the province of Quebec is one-third of what most art schools charge in the United States. Find Europe in Canada!

Graduate programs
With a Humanities PhD established in 1973, Concordia University has one of the longest standing cross-disciplinary doctoral programs in North America. Our Individualized Program, created in 1979, was also ahead of its time, allowing students to choose MA or PhD supervisors from any sector of the university.

These transdisciplinary degrees are joined by discipline-specific postgraduate research streams in Studio Arts, Design, Cinematic Arts, Film Studies, Art Education, Art History, and Creative Arts Therapies.
