The MA in Fine Art offers an exciting opportunity for students to expand and deepen their knowledge and practice. This dynamic programme will support you by engaging with the challenges inherent in building your artistic practice. It provides you with a framework within which you will experiment, work through personal investigations, and be encouraged to specialise. Lectures, seminars and critiques link practice and theory, and provide a forum for sharing and exploring perspectives. Applying critical reflection and locating your work within a contemporary environment of ideas, you will develop your practice to produce a substantial body of work.
You may work in any contemporary medium and will be able to take advantage of our facilities and expertise in painting, drawing, digital media, photography, video, sculpture, installation and printmaking. Critical studies form an integral part of the course, enabling you to contextualise studio practice in seminar papers and presentations.
