In 1973, a provisional embargo in fine arts by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities mandated an internal study before new graduate programs could be funded. The Council of Ontario Universities' recommendations for dance, film, and theater and drama are: that masters' programs be initiated at York University (dance, film, theater, studio art), and the University of Waterloo (dance); that the University of Toronto continue its programs in drama; that planning continue at the University of Windsor for master's programs in theater history (MA) and directing and acting (MFA); and that no graduate work in theater and drama be undertaken at the University of Ottawa without further study. Recommendations for visual arts are: that a master's program in art history, emphasizing Canadian and contemporary art, be developed in the province; and that the provisional embargoes on art history and studio art be continued. For music, it is recommended that the proposed master's programs be initiated at the University of Ottawa, Queen's University, McMaster University, and York University; that the University of Western Ontario initiate its doctoral program; and that ACAP review the situation in 1978. Appendices contain detailed procedures, full reports and the university comments on each, coordinating group and task force membership lists, and explanations of advisory committee and discipline group roles.
