Master of Contemporary Art


Course Description

The Master of Contemporary Art (MCA) is a dynamic program that supports the development of a career in contemporary art practice. The MCA is specifically designed to offer students with training in the visual arts, and students wishing to re-enter the field, with a valuable platform for up-skilling. The MCA also provides an important pathway to research degrees (including MFA) by offering specialised research training electives. MCA students propose and develop a self-initiated visual arts project. Seminars in art practice concentrate on the practical, theoretical and material context of contemporary art and the relationship with students' individual studio practice. History and theory seminars provide a forum for discussion on key theorists and philosophers appropriate to contemporary art, and may also include gallery visits and guest lectures. Students can tailor the degree to their preferred pathway, be it research or professional. Those who wish to undertake a more professional pathway can complete a placement that interfaces directly with the creative industries. Students are examined on their studio project at the completion of their study. The degree is self-directed, flexible, and cross-disciplinary, and has a strong record of providing students with professional opportunities.
