BACHELOR OF ARTS (HONOURS) IN FINE ART
The Fine Art programme provides a studio based education in Fine Art, with emphasis on personal creative development. Fine Art describes any art form developed primarily for aesthetics or concept rather than utility. Students are introduced to the skills and philosophies of the practicing artist, and the course prepares them for active careers in the visual arts or for further study to Masters degree level.
Fine Art offers a series of very varied career paths. The course aims to instill individualism and independence. Graduates may build careers as practising artists. Other careers include teaching, photography, multimedia and crafts, and students may find employment in art criticism, as exhibition organisers and art handlers, in foundries, and as technicians and craft assistants.
BA (HONOURS) IN CONTEMPORARY APPLIED ART (CERAMICS, GLASS, TEXTILES)
Contemporary Applied Art encourages fresh ideas, inventive use of materials and techniques, and offers students the opportunity to critically engage with current practice. The course combines studio projects with practical workshop based sessions, alongside contextual academic studies where ideas, historical reference and making are integrated.
The new and exciting Contemporary Applied Art Degree course explores contemporary ideas, use of materials and offers students the opportunity to creatively develop and make objects. The course combines studio projects and practical workshop based sessions, where idea development and making are integrated. Students have a base studio, where individual and group tutorials, crits and presentations take place. The contextual academic modules combine lectures, seminars, workshops, and tutorials, encouraging a high level of debate and interaction. The programme is staffed by practicing professionals, and visiting lecturers who regularly contribute specialist expertise.
