Course content

The MA Fine Art course represents an exciting opportunity for you to challenge and build on your previous achievements and to study at an advanced level. This course is an opportunity to look at the familiar with a fresh, perhaps oblique perspective in order to explore how “detour” permits “access” to more subtle yet more complex interpretations.

This course will deepen your knowledge and ability to focus on your chosen field in relation to the key aspects that inform it. Set within a community and culture of makers, students engage in dialogue and debate with their peers, both within and across MA pathways.

By taking advantage of the diversity of the course’s cohort, you will be able to explore cultural and educational differences delivered through practice, discourse, workshops and collaborations with a wide range of MA courses.

Recognising the individual and their aspirations, and celebrating ideas and risk-taking, our approach and experience of encouraging inter-disciplinary and collective activity lies with the provision of a meaningful journey for our students beyond the obvious.

You will meet the fresh, often unpredictable and certainly challenging possibilities that are offered as you test, develop, progress, interrogate, ‘make’ and confidently reflect on your practice.
