About Fine Art
Masters degree in Fine Art offer advanced training in artistic techniques for the composition pieces of art in a range of mediums, such as painting and sculpture.
Courses range from taught MS and MFA degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as At or Design.
Courses in this field may be interdisciplinary in approach, though some will entail specific applied or theoretical pursuits.
If you are more interested in taught modes of inquiry, you may choose to explore fine art with regards to art history, gender studies or even social politics, examining concepts in past and current periods.
Or, if applied art is your preference, you could engage with creative and experimental techniques to produce original pieces of art. Through this, you might explore different methodologies in both contemporary and historical arts practise.
Careers can include working as an independent practitioner, as part of an artists’ guild, or in community-based arts therapy centres. Other roles may also include arts restoration, and other pursuits in the heritage industry such as curation for museums and art galleries.
