MA Fine Art at our Farnham campus offers extensive access to UCA’s world leading research centres and Farnham’s budding arts community, postgraduates choosing to study here will have the opportunity to explore subject-specific areas, with the course also providing the intellectual and physical space for multi or interdisciplinary practices.
Throughout this MA you'll develop visual and conceptual thinking, with the aim of establishing and refining a research project to be sustained beyond graduation, and developed into either a practice-based or theoretically-led enquiry.
Whilst working towards your qualification, you might choose to specialise within or across subject areas. Our course also welcomes applicants who are looking to re-examine their current work and research.
MA Fine Art aims to test the relationship between your work and key historical and critical developments. It also looks to consider it within current societal and political contexts.
As a student on our course, you'll need to be ready to question, be curious and be enthusiastic about testing the boundaries of what constitutes art practice in the twenty-first century.
