Course summary

Overview

This Masters will enable you to develop your personal visual practice and follow your own interests and aspirations. You'll follow a chosen pathway for the duration of your MA study, with the option to be awarded with one of the following:

  • MA Visual Practice: Contemporary Fine Art
  • MA Visual Practice: Photography
  • MA Visual Practice: Glass
  • MA Visual Practice: Ceramics

We do not have a ‘house style’, instead you will be encouraged and supported to uncover your own focus through independent creativity. You’ll improve your technical ability through expert support, using our excellent facilities, and develop academic skills in research and communication.

You'll work alongside a diverse range of established artists, theorists, writers, curators and specialist technicians to develop your practice and professional career, and you'll meet, share practice and collaborate with staff and peers from a variety of disciplines as part of the MA Visual Practice community.

Career opportunities

Many recent Sunderland graduates are now working as independent self-employed artists and are successful practitioners around the world, while some have moved on to teaching in schools and lecturing positions at universities. Others have chosen to move into other areas, including jewellery, architecture, interior design, engineering, photography, painting and sculpture.

During the course we encourage you to gain creative industry experience which will enhance your skills, build up a valuable network of contacts and boost your employability. This experience can take the form of working on live commissions, entering competitions and exhibiting work in public exhibitions. We also have the Digital Incubator Unit and the Enterprise Place who can offer assistance for you to start your own business or freelance practice.
