A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.
Visual arts courses often cover skills in aesthetic arts. However, there are many applied art forms included in visual arts courses. These programs can cover graphic design, fashion design, decorative art and industrial design. These can help students prepare for a position in a particular field.

There are as many hours of teaching as on Bath Spa University's established MA in Creative Writing.The course is taught at our beautiful Corsham Court campus where we are developing performance, capture and editing facilities. We also work closely with the School of Music and Performing Arts, and their students will have the opportunity to help act in and produce our work.Although this is an intellectually challenging postgraduate course, there is no 'academic' side detached from the working side.
