Course summary

Welcome to MA Fine Art

MA Fine Art is a studio-based course that is aimed at those who wish to develop the critical, research, practical, and professional aspects of their art practice at the highest level.

This interdisciplinary programme encourages creative risk-taking and intellectual inquiry. Alongside a strong emphasis on the richness and breadth of art from around the world, staff and students on the programme are encouraged to take an active role in Lincoln's contemporary art community.

Students will have access to studio space and benefit from strong links with national and international artists and curators, which in the past have included working with the Collection, Lincolnshire Archives, The Blue Room, and others on collaborative projects.

A range of artists and professionals are invited to deliver guest lectures and tutorials as part of ART TALKS. Recent speakers include Assemble, Heath Bunting, Esther Leslie, Maurice Carlin, Danica Maier, Rachel Goodyear, and Alex Pearl.

Medium-specific specialist themes are available, recognising the increased material focus of advanced practice in fine art.

How You Study

MA Fine Art is based in a dedicated studio and the production of work through studio practice is central to the programme.

The structure of the course is designed to be supportive, but geared towards independent research and practice. Teaching occurs through tutorials, critiques, seminars, lectures, visiting artists and curators, study visits and, importantly, through sharing of research and ideas among the peer group.

How You Are Assessed

Students are assessed in a variety of ways, including spoken presentations, written submission, and the presentation of critically grounded art work.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly usually within 15 working days of the submission date (unless stated differently above).

Career and Personal Development

The MA Fine Art is designed to enhance students’ practical, theoretical, and creative understanding of their chosen artistic discipline. Graduates have gone on to exhibit their work and undertake commissions.

The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University. As a member of our alumni we also offer one-to-one support in the first year after completing your course, including access to events, vacancy information and website resources; with access to online vacancies and virtual and website resources for the following two years.
