Highlights of MTM's degree
MTM entered into an agreement in 2018 with Duncan Of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, or Duncan College, located in Dundee, Scotland, for collaborative education. MTM students can be admitted to Duncan College for a one-year master’s program after they have successfully completed the four-year college diploma program at MTM.
This is known as a“4+1 program”.
MTM is also developing a“2+2 program”with two Canadian public universities in disciplines related to animation and art education. Under a 2+2 program, MTM students will be able to directly transfer to a public university for the remaining two years of study for bachelor’s degree after they have completed the first two years of study at MTM.
With the Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities, These bachelor’s degree programs are expected to be housed in one of our three campuses, located at 95 Moatfield, 200 and 260 Town Center Blvd., Markham, Ontario. We are the sole owner of these two buildings that have a total floor area of 100,000 square feet.
