|Department||Art, Design and Media|
Want to develop your artistic practice to a higher level? Building on your previous studies, our Fine Art Master’s degree aims to develop and broaden your knowledge and skills using new and alternative media. External partners and arts-based agencies provide opportunities to engage directly with the world of contemporary fine art.
Our MA in Fine Art offers an exciting opportunity to explore, develop and create. This course gives you the freedom to enhance your practical and creative skills, underpinned by a contextual research-based programme of critical studies. You’ll have a personal supervisor and work in the studio alongside your fellow MA Fine Art students. In addition, sessions focusing on entrepreneurial and contemporary exhibition/curatorial skills will help to extend your understanding of current practice and business management.
During your studies, you’ll develop a body of work for exhibition in the purpose-built fine art studio/exhibition area, to be held at the end of the course. You’ll have the chance to apply for commissions and work for external agencies, and be encouraged to make external links through exhibition or artist-in-residency opportunities.
Former Fine Art students were instrumental in founding Neo:artists Studios, a Bolton-based internationally-recognised contemporary art group with a dynamic exhibition programme. As an MA student you’ll have opportunities to access the facilities and mentoring at Neo:artists, in addition to the tuition and guidance you receive at the University.
