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.
The Master of Fine Art course will prepare you for a range of careers thanks to the diverse range of skills that you will acquire throughout your studies.
You may wish to pursue a broad range of jobs within the cultural sector, curating, professional research, teaching or doctoral studies.
The provision for enterprise or self-employment is delivered through professional exhibiting opportunities including grant and CV writing, developing your own web presence and testing writing with external stakeholders. You will also learn how to manage your time, resources and budgets.
Despite being a new programme, the Master of Fine Art course already boasts successful alumni , including Gethin Wyn Jones, currently a research fellow at the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm and artist Joanna Hutton who was selected for EVA International, Ireland’s Biennial, less than a year after graduating.
