Program Description

MA Visual Arts: Fine Art Digital

University of the Arts London

MA Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College of Arts focuses on art that engages with, uses and is impacted by the digital. This course doesn’t focus on technology but presents it as a tool to facilitate ideas, placing emphasis upon its creative and artistic use. Our MA in Fine Art Digital is offered both as a studio based course and an online course.

Content: what students can expect

  • A shared lecture programme across the Visual Arts courses that draw upon the richness of research across Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges
  • The chance to get involved in projects, seminars and presentations across the University and at other institutions that have previously included the V&A, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, FACT in Liverpool, onedotzero as well as international galleries in China and Brazil
  • To take part in a unique final exhibition, combining work from our students in London with that of our online students around the world at the end of the course

Structure

Extended Full-Time Study Mode

The MA is taught over two years in six blocks of 10 weeks. Extended Full-Time mode is a hybrid of part time and full time study.

By teaching in this mode we aim to give our students the opportunity to benefit from undertaking a full time Masters degree while also pursuing and sustaining other commitments such as part-time employment, gaining other experience in the creative industries or maintaining care responsibilities.

Online Study Mode

This mode allows students to study MA Fine Art Digital wherever they are in the world. Weekly chat sessions create a highly effective group dynamic, and a supportive yet challenging community of practice quickly develops. This mode offers students a uniquely flexible way to study, as they’re able to combine studying with employment or any other commitments. During the two year course, students also have the option of taking up three two week residencies that can include workshops, visits, discussions, lectures and access to our extensive facilities for the making and exhibiting of work.
