Course summary

Overview

The MA in Fine Art enables you to evaluate and develop your creative practice to the highest standards. It develops theoretical awareness, critical thinking and independent arts practice to a professional level.

The course facilitates critical debate between artists working within and across media areas including painting, photography, digital imaging, printmaking, sculpture, installation and site-specific art. Alongside your studio-based enquiry, you will undertake related research into the broader context of contemporary art practices and theoretical debates.

Course Details

When you start this course, you will begin with the module ‘Extended Fine Art Practice and Research Methodologies’ to give you a grounding in different research-based methods in Fine Art.

You will have access to comprehensive specialist resources with technical instruction and support. Our research-active staff provide continual mentoring to help you position your practice within professional cultural environments, arts-related employment or higher-level academic research.

WHAT IS THE LEARNING AND TEACHING SCHEDULE?

During the first and second trimester specific modules are usually delivered on Mondays 9:30am to 4pm.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

The course is assessed in both theory and practice by assignment, examination, portfolio submission and exhibition. You will produce work throughout the course for informal feedback, which does not contribute to your final grade but will give you the chance to improve your work. The MA Fine Art has three formal assessment periods in February, May and September, and these will contribute to your final grade.
