Course content

The postgraduate Fine Art course at Canterbury is designed to provide a structured context for the development of individual Masters projects, by introducing and exploring various strategies for making art and developing an understanding of the ideas that make such practices meaningful.

The course offers a series of specialisms which recognise the history and specificity of concerns within particular areas of fine art, whilst a cross-disciplinary structure of delivery encourages connections with other modes of thinking and working in a community of practices and ideas.

You can choose to specialise in one of four areas:

  • Artists' Film, Video & Photography
  • Painting
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture & Performance
