Course Summary

OVERVIEW

MA Fine Art provides a stimulating environment in which you will be guided to develop your creative aspirations, reach a critical maturity, and gain the self-confidence and skills that will enable you to work as a successful artist.

The course is studio practice driven and relies on experimentation and critical reflection supported by individualised mentoring, lectures, seminars and group critiques. It emphasises the articulation of ideas, development of working methods and the realisation of independent work. Seminars are structured to investigate a broad range of themes relevant to the practicing artist and provide a rich diet of inspiration.

CAREER PROSPECTS

We cultivate highly motivated, independent and creative thinkers who can transfer their skills into the creative marketplace, as entrepreneurial innovators, freelance practitioners and innovative team players. Past graduates predominantly achieve graduate-level positions or practise as sole traders, design studio artists, exhibiting artists, museum curators, archivists, researchers, academics, community practitioners, specialist technicians and filmmakers at national and international levels. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.

Modules

Driven and focused on the development of your practice through the realisation of a comprehensive and coherent body of work, this unit builds upon the previous Practice 1 unit and provides an opportunity to sustain the development of practice over a concentrated period of time. Within this unit you will be expected to resolve a comprehensive understanding of their practice, its place in relation to the broader related discipline and the potential professionalization and sustainability of future practice. You will be expected to be able to communicate the summary learning journey of their programme of study, the relevant methodologies used to develop the practice and the future professional pathways being explored. There is a break within this unit to allow for a period of reflection that will contribute towards the final written component necessary for assessment.
