Fine Art

Would you like to develop your art practice in a vibrant research culture, supported by dedicated studio space and outstanding exhibition facilities? Developed in conjunction with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, the BxNU (MFA) Master of Fine Art course is centred upon praxis - promoting active learning through practise-based artistic research, scholarship and critical reflection. You will be given the unique opportunity to design and develop your own investigations, determining themes, questions and strategies and moving between experimentation and reflective analysis to production, presentation and publication. Taught by a wide range of distinguished and internationally respected practitioners, you will undertake field trips and workplace visits, in addition to the option of a study abroad through the Erasmus Exchange programme. This course offers the perfect opportunity for you to develop your professional skills and prepare for a broad range of jobs.
