Program description

MFA Art & Humanities

This highly interdisciplinary course will suit students who want the opportunity to work across the traditionally defined boundaries imposed by many fine art and humanities programmes. Each student is able to individually tailor their programme of study, and can choose to complete the course with either an exhibition of creative work or a major written dissertation as the final project for this postgraduate course.

This programme combines studio art and masters level modules in the humanities (such as Philosophy, English or Film Studies). It embraces all forms of Fine Art practice - traditional and contemporary - and celebrates the inherent diversity in each year's participants.

You will be encouraged to read critically and analytically, and to develop abilities in conducting high level discourse in critical, contextual and theoretical thinking. This combination of skills is extended through lively debate, which strengthen each individual's self-evaluation, reflective practice and cumulative progression. 

Throughout the course, you will be supported by a supervisor and dedicated tutorials, which add to the depth and breadth of your knowledge and understanding as personal study evolves.

Admission requirements

You should normally have obtained a first degree with upper second class Honours or above in an appropriate discipline or, exceptionally, a lower second class Honours or such other qualifications. Professional experience may be approved by the Art and Design Board for this purpose and have satisfied the Programme Director of their fitness to undertake both the academic and practical requirements of the programme.
You will need to upload a portfolio of creative visual work. These can be in any mode, material or genre and represent your current interests. You can upload up to 15 still images and up to 3 links to video clips hosted on YouTube or Vimeo.

Written work - Please provide a piece of academic writing (art history essay, literature essay, review of art exhibition, etc.) that shows an ability to analyse text and read critically.
