Course content

As a student of our MA Fine Art course at UCA Farnham, you’ll be ready to question, be critical, be curious, and be enthusiastic about testing the boundaries of what constitutes art practice in the 21st Century.

Throughout this MA, you’ll critically evaluate your own work and the work of others and constantly develop your visual and conceptual thinking - all with the aim of establishing and refining a research project to be developed into either a practice-based or theoretically-led enquiry beyond graduation.

You’ll test the relationship between your work and key historical and critical developments, and consider it within current societal and political contexts. You’ll also have the opportunity, if you wish, to specialise within or across subject areas.

Our course also welcomes applicants who are looking to re-examine their current work and research.

MA Fine Art in Farnham is unique for its world-leading research and range of first-class facilities, including bronze foundry, printmaking studios, metals, wood and casting facilities and resources. We provide specialist studio spaces for both full and part-time students, and dedicated technical staff are on hand to support individual projects as well as introductions to workshop areas.

You’ll be guided by a community of teaching staff comprising professional artists, curators and theorists, who will also actively promote you and your work in the wider world.

The department has a rich tradition in the teaching and exploration of fine art. All of the staff are research practitioners and many are world-leading, contributing to the wider development of knowledge within their specialist areas.
