Study type Taught


This specialist Pathway offers students the opportunity to develop their Fine Art Practice through different modes of lens-based media, including: digital and analogue photography as well as the moving image. The course is structured in order to enable exploration of these areas within the broader context of Fine Art Practice. With access to excellent technical facilities students will have the opportunity to construct and investigate different potential methodologies for practice. The course also approaches methods for display through print, projection, screen and other interrelated forms.
Students will be able to use these media in order to interrogate the conceptual and image related aspects of their practices. The development of ideas in relation to practice and the expanded forms of practice are integral to the course, and students will be informed by wider debate around contemporary Fine Art, through the context of the specific media in order to develop, and structure, both the practical and theoretical underpinning of their work. By the end of the programme, students will be expected to demonstrate their learning through innovative and original means, with an emphasis on research and contextual investigation via thorough interrogation of the subject areas.
