The MA in Fine Art programme is aimed at those who have already achieved high production values in their studio work yet wish to contextualise their research in relation to contemporary critical theories. It provides the resources and learning context necessary to assess and critically evaluate theories of visual representations. The programme aims to provide the basis for future professional art practice, curatorial engagement or academic research at a higher level. Its central concerns relate to professional accomplishments in the making of art in contextual, critical and theoretical understanding and students are helped to identify and negotiate personal and shared positions within current practice/theory. Students take full responsibility for their own programme of work, routinely engaging with critically informed contemporary issues in art. This includes the production of work in the studio and workshop environment and a programme of research and study.
As well as studio work and studies in contemporary art, theory and criticism, students undertake an additional option from the School's broad array of MA theory modules thus complementing and underpinning their practice through rigorous discourse. Students are also required to complete a dissertation on a subject related to their own studio practice.
The programme is supported by the region's resources which include many internationally recognised institutions, collections and archives close at hand such as Baltic, Cornerhouse, Dean Clough, Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, National Media Museum, Tate Liverpool and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
