The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) by research is designed to provide graduate visual artists with the opportunity to develop their art practice within the structure of a research culture.
You will develop a level of proficiency, self-direction and focus through investigating a proposed area of research, and will be encouraged to produce work of an original and speculative nature. Your research supervisor will provide personalised and dedicated attention to the development of your research outcomes.
You can complete the Master of Fine Arts by creative work and research paper culminating in a substantial exhibition, screening, performance or installation of creative works, and a research paper on an area of relevance to the creative work; or by thesis in the field of art theory, art history, cultural studies or professional studies in visual art.
It is assumed that those entering this degree are trained and competent in their particular field and are seeking to extend their practice at a higher level.
