Course content

MA Fine Art Digital at Central Saint Martins supports a broad range of experimental art practices. It will test and challenge your work, bringing it into a contemporary critical context. Our research-based teaching strategies actively seek to extend your experience and skills. We work responsively to your changing needs as individuals. We also encourage collaborative projects in relation to your work.

Students on MA Fine Art Digital work in many media – including painting, sculpture, print, installation, time-based and digital. The course offers an environment where complex social, cultural and artistic viewpoints are negotiated. Here, art-making is a testing ground for ideas and media. Artists who study with us are open to change – not just in expanding their practices – but also in creating new positions. Our focus is on bringing your work to the critical scrutiny of the academic setting. Through these interactions, you will develop your individual research into a confident, sustained practice.

On this course, we place emphasis on creating a supportive but challenging space for investigating your creative practice. MA Fine Art Digital has a track record of innovative teaching and its flexible structure is designed for widely accessible learning, allowing students to engage from incredibly diverse settings. This offers students the enriching experience of collectively exploring what art is in a digital environment. Whatever media you are investigating, the opportunities afforded by the online space are broad and exciting.

On this course, diverse approaches to creative practice are supported by strong critical engagement with contemporary technologies of making and dissemination. Weekly group sessions act as forums for cross-course and transdisciplinary exchange and collaboration. An intensive programme of study will develop your skills and knowledge of research methods in art-related fields. Your learning will extend across our postgraduate Art programme, offering input from the College’s research community. On the course, we aim to provide you with a range of opportunities and learning experiences, giving you a broad skill set to go out into professional life.
