The Masters in Fine Art will push you to develop your skills in your chosen medium, whether that is Illustration, drawing, painting, photography or printmaking. You will become more confident as a creative practitioner of contemporary art as you explore your own styles and imaginative boundaries.

The Masters in Fine Art features a highly practical repertoire of modules which will encourage you to direct your studies into areas of art which particularly fascinate you. This course is highly practical, not only in the hands-on approach to Art itself, but also in studying the necessary practicalities of exhibition preparation, installation and evaluation.

The Aberystwyth Masters in Fine Art provide you with an excellent opportunity to develop your artistic skills, understanding and technical aptitudes as you strive to pursue your art. In every area of this course, technical, stylistic, and conceptual experimentation is enthusiastically encouraged. You will also be able to participate in ‘Forum’ seminars to communicate orally and critically about your own and colleagues’ works. You will also have the opportunity to submit articles for publication to contextualize your practice and develop your engagement with critical and public opinion. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework assessment (2014) it was found that 75% of publications were of an internationally recognised standard or higher.

Career opportunities

Your pursuit of personal development as an artist, coupled with increased critical faculties, will make you a strong candidate for any post where people and opinions meet.
