Institution Plymouth College of Art View institution profile
Department Critical and Cultural Studies
Study type Taught


Our MA Fine Art offers you an intensive personal programme of creative study informed by debates in contemporary art and critical theory.

Ethos The MA Fine Art encourages diverse approaches to the relationship between theory and practice, emphasising material exploration, collaborative working and the cross-fertilisation of disciplines to open new conceptual spaces. Our programme encourages you to develop hybrid approaches to investigating your experience, while responding to the rapidly changing social contexts that are reshaping contemporary art. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programme, helping you to make dynamic and challenging artwork that is sensitive to new approaches to display.

Outline You will be encouraged to develop a personal methodology for drawing, while exploring a range of strategies, materials and technologies. The programme will stimulate connections, debates and new approaches to drawing across varied disciplines in a dynamic studio setting, with access to workshop areas across the college. Throughout the programme, we will support you to seek opportunities to extend your practice, both nationally and internationally.

Taught delivery within the programme provides a mix of discipline-specific methods and cross-disciplinary approaches that can be applied across creative and commercial sectors. Our shared module structure allows you to develop a dialogue with creative practitioners across the Graduate School.

Supported practices This programme supports ambitious practices that explore a range of contexts across 2D, 3D and 4D media, including works created for gallery display, site-specific installation and digital distribution.
