Our Masters programmes offer you an intensive personal programme of creative and stimulating study within a supportive critical and practical framework that enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of your chosen practice.
We encourage diversity in thinking and making, acknowledging the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross-fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of new and vital concepts. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programmes, helping you to make dynamic and challenging work that resonates and reflects your key concerns in light of current national and international dialogues.
The MA Fine Art programme encourages you to develop an engaged studio practice while gaining critical and contextual skills, developing your approach to the potential of interdisciplinary working, testing and making.
Not limited by a particular practice or discipline, you are able to work across and through drawing, painting, sculpture, video, sound, printmaking, installation and performance, among others.
We support the development of an ambitious practice that inhabits a range of contexts, from the traditional gallery to site-specific projects and collaborative working that is critically and materially engaged.
You will have the opportunity to critically engage with current debates within the subject area, relevant institutional contexts and partners and be encouraged to consider what it means to be an artist in the 21st century.
We’ll support you in articulating your ideas, developing your working methods and creating independent work, through individual tutorials, lectures, subject-specific seminars, studio and gallery visits and group critiques with access to our rich workshop areas and technical resources across the university.
