The course promotes intellectual enquiry, a high level of practical and technical ability, and the acquisition of a professional skillset. Its aim is for you to be fully prepared as a competitive arts professional.

The MA in Fine Art offers an opportunity for you to expand and deepen your knowledge and experience of contemporary fine art disciplines. It provides stimulating studio and theory studies to meet the needs of graduates wishing to develop their studio practice in a critical and supportive academic environment. Lectures, seminars and group criticisms provide a forum linking practice, critique and theory. You will be provided with a framework within which you will be encouraged to specialise and develop a substantial body of work.

You are supported in working in any contemporary medium and will be able to draw on our expertise in painting, drawing, digital media, photography, sculpture, installation and printmaking. Critical and historical studies form an integral part of the course, enabling you to contextualise studio practice in seminar papers and presentations.

The course emphasises supervised independent learning, personal responsibility, reflection and critical evaluation. You'll be encouraged to share your knowledge, experience and perceptions.
