Course summary

Programme Overview

The M.Litt in Fine Art Practice is a one year taught programme which runs for 12 months between September and September.

Drawing Pathway

This specialist pathway is aimed at Students from a wide range of academic and creative backgrounds who have in common a desire to further develop drawing as a core activity. The course is founded on the individual exploration of drawing as a means of discovery, expression and analysis conducted in a supportive and challenging educational environment. Through practice, criticism and exposure to contemporary and historical contexts students are encouraged to identify the most appropriate methodologies for articulating their ideas. Whilst the studio will be the base from where most individual and collective approaches to drawing will take place, opportunities to take part in residencies, field trips, and workshops will also be available. Through the various aspects of the course students will consider methodologies both historical and contemporary and explore the potential for experimentation afforded by specific contexts and environments. Students will explore drawing as the armature for interrogating both process and its transformatory capacity whilst engaging with drawing as a conceptual, observational, tactile and visual activity. One of the core aspects of this pathway is the acquisition of key transferable skills fundamental to a robust and professional drawing practice. By the end of the programme the students will have consolidated a working archive that demonstrates an informed, personal, and highly developed drawing practice that will be sustainable in the graduate’s professional practice.

The programme is studio-based and centred on practice, and is intended to provide opportunities for students to pursue in-depth subject-specific study in fine art practice at postgraduate level. Students applying to the programme identify in advance which pathway they intend to study from the six on offer. Students will be based within, and supported by staff from, the appropriate Pathway within the School of Fine Art. The staff who teach on the various Pathways are all experts and practitioners in that particular specialism, ensuring students can engage in dialogue pertinent to their individual learning through their specialism.

Students on the MLitt in Fine Art Practice Programme oscillate between operating within their pathways (in the studio, in tutorials and group critiques, and specifically focused lectures and seminars), and across them - especially in lectures and talks that deal with more generic conceptual and philosophical issues. Efforts are made to ensure that students on the programme are enabled to fully devote themselves to their chosen field of practice, whilst facilitating their learning through the provision of a range of interdisciplinary opportunities for critical reflection and personal development.

Assessment

Peer and staff review, formative and summative assessment, with continuous feedback from tutorials. Lecture courses are assessed by essay, coursework and formal written examinations. Applicant's project proposal at point of application forms the basis for the student's final project of practice and research. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.
