Did you know?4 ways AMPD prepares you for success
We offer academic advising specifically for AMPD students.
Unlike centralized advising services in other institutions, York University separates its advising offices by faculty. This allows us to offer you a personalized approach to your needs as a student creator or artist.
We also offer the longest academic advising appointments at York University! Our advisors reserve 45 minutes to meet with students and listen to their concerns.
Even before the pandemic, we had a reputation for award winning E-Learning courses.
Since the Mid-2000s, York U AMPD has offered interactive online courses that suit a variety of learning styles. Classes such as FILM1900: Anatomy of the Feature Film have received accolades from the International E-Learning Association and recognized in the STLHE Brightspace/D2L Innovation Awards.
In these online modules, students use popular platforms such as forums, podcasts, YouTube and Slack to communicate and share course content. Our classes encourage open forum conversations to empower all students to participate in the exchange of ideas.
Our creative spaces could
fill 5 football fields.
York University is home to one of Canada’s largest sculpture studios, it has 35,000 square feet of sprung floor for dancers and actors, sound stages up to 4,000 square feet for filmmakers, a 2,000 square foot carpentry studio, and recital halls and theatres that seat 300+ people. With that much creative space, you will be astounded by how much of it you can carve out for yourself when you come to campus.
We have an in-house Experiential Education coordinator to help you get placements in the industry.
With school assignments, student clubs and collaborations taking up so much of your energy, it can be hard to find time for cold-calls and networking in the “real world”. That’s where we come in!
Meet Merrill, our Experiential Education Coordinator. It’s Merrill’s job to help you find placements and make meaningful introductions to professionals in your creative industry.
