Course summary

Overview

Investing time in the rich relationship between practice and theory, our MA Fine Art offers you an intensive personal programme of creative study within a supportive critical and practical framework.

We encourage diversity in thinking and practice, and acknowledge the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross - fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of new concepts.

Our programme encourages new models of practice, while investing in core principles and providing space for you to develop making skills. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programme, helping you to make dynamic and challenging artwork that fits within a national and international context.

Our MA Fine Art programme helps you to develop a strong and engaged studio practice, as well as gaining critical and contextual skills, and strengths in interdisciplinary working, testing and making.

The practices you may explore include drawing, painting, sculpture, video, sound, printmaking, installation and performance, among others. We are committed to supporting ambitious practices that inhabit a range of contexts, from the traditional gallery to site-specific projects.

You will have the opportunity to develop a relationship with our existing external partners, who include regional and national galleries, museums, creative organisations and practising artists. We offer dedicated studio space within our fine art studios, with access to workshop areas across the college.

Careers & Alumni

Alumni of our Graduate School pursue careers in the fields of fine art, craft and design, as practising artists, teachers, curators, and as gallery, theatre and technical professionals. Others go on to prepare for doctoral study, and set up viable projects as socially engaged and community-based practitioners.

Our programmes offer professional skills development to support our students as they progress within industry, self-employment (in the Creative Industries sector) and further Level 7 and 8 studies. The second module offers an opportunity to test out the practices being investigated by individual students within an appropriate, live setting.
