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.

Photography and the Moving Image Pathway

This specialist Pathway offers students the opportunity to develop their Fine Art Practice through different modes of lens-based media, including: digital and analogue photography as well as the moving image. The course is structured in order to enable exploration of these areas within the broader context of Fine Art Practice. With access to excellent technical facilities students will have the opportunity to construct and investigate different potential methodologies for practice. The course also approaches methods for display through print, projection, screen and other interrelated forms. Students will be able to use these media in order to interrogate the conceptual and image related aspects of their practices. The development of ideas in relation to practice and the expanded forms of practice are integral to the course, and students will be informed by wider debate around contemporary Fine Art, through the context of the specific media in order to develop, and structure, both the practical and theoretical underpinning of their work. By the end of the programme, students will be expected to demonstrate their learning through innovative and original means, with an emphasis on research and contextual investigation via thorough interrogation of the subject areas.

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.
