Course summary

Lancaster's degree in Fine Art and Creative Writing is taught jointly by the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) and the Department of English and Creative Writing. This course is ideal for anyone with strong academic and creative abilities who wants to study fine art alongside creative writing.

Your Creative Writing courses are taught by a team of widely published authors through a combination of lectures, readings, practice and discussion in regular tutor-led workshops. Your degree includes an Introduction to Creative Writing in your first year, and in your second and third years of study you will choose additional genre-specific units such as Short Fiction, Poetry Writing or Creative Non-fiction.

Fine Art at Lancaster gives you the opportunity to integrate Art Practice with Art History/Theory at a high level. From the first through to the final year of your degree you will develop creative and technical skills in painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art and their hybrids. While we have no ‘house style’ the emphasis is on Fine Art practice and Fine Art ‘thinking’ rather than illustration. Our aim is for you to develop the practice and ideas that best reflect your aims and values as a young Fine Artist. Your tutors will be professional artists and publishing historians and the mix of academic and creative skills gained at Lancaster makes you highly attractive for postgraduate study and employers.

Careers

Fine Art and Creative Writing graduates from Lancaster University have developed careers as professionals for creative agencies, working in publishing, television or for museums and galleries, while some go on to be professional artists.

As well as teaching and arts administration, the multidisciplinary skills our graduates acquire during their degree open doors across the creative industries and in many employment sectors.

Lancaster graduates successfully progress onto PGCE, MA, MPhil and PhD courses, either with us or at other high quality national and international institutions, for example the Royal College of Art and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Ghent.
