About Emily Carr
Emily Carr University of Art + Design formerly known as the Vancouver School of Art, was established in 1925. In 1978, it was designated a provincial institute before moving to Granville Island in 1980. A second building on Granville Island opened in 1994, and the following year, Emily Carr was granted authority to offer bachelor degrees and honorary degrees. In 2001, Finning International donated a parcel of land to Emily Carr, SFU, UBC and BCIT, in what is now known as the Great Northern Way Campus. In 2005, Emily Carr and North Island College launched a pilot project allowing students to earn a Fine Arts Diploma at NIC's Comox Valley Campus. In 2006, Emily Carr launched a Master of Applied Arts degree, and opened the Intersections Digital Studio, which has significantly expanded the university's research capabilities. In 2007, Emily Carr introduced a joint Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing and Studio Arts with UNBC. In 2008, the school was granted university status.
