Teaching faculty

Arts building

The roster of faculty teaching in the program depends on availability, the courses being offered, and so on.

The Faculty of Arts at Memorial constitutes the major pool of lecturers, but the program also draws on other faculties as well as on artists and other members of the St. John's arts and culture community.


Guest lecturers from universities and other institutions across Canada and internationally also teach in courses.
