Course content

Our MA Printmaking programme provides you with the opportunity to explore experimental and innovative approaches to the discipline, as well as its relationship to wider contemporary practices.

Through individual experimentation and exploration, we encourage you to test the boundaries of fine-art printmaking practice, to work in traditional and digital media, and to develop ambitious projects through research, debate and interaction with wider audiences and communities.

You will be able to develop your work through a range of print and digital technologies, in the context of the broadening of the scope of printmaking with recent technological advances.

Through our programme you will explore a range of models of practice that are available to the contemporary printmaker, examining the notion of printmaking as research, and developing your ideas so that you can engage, both nationally and internationally, with the wider research community in the discipline.

You will enhance your critical understanding through engagement in research and debate, and test your ideas in a supportive, professional and critically engaged environment.

You will have access to our print studios, allowing you to explore a range of autographic printmaking processes, including intaglio, lithographic, relief print, screenprinting, letterpress and digital processes.
