Why study MA Fine Art at Middlesex University?
The MA Fine Art at Middlesex is a practice-led, research-based programme that encourages students to explore the creative, cultural, political and social questions of art practice. It offers students the opportunity to further their knowledge and skills by undertaking a systematic and comprehensive major body of work. The course welcomes students whose enquiry takes place across a range of disciplines that include painting, sculpture, photography and film, installation, performance, 'event' making and other relational practices. Drawing upon local, national and international contexts, students are asked to consider the current role of fine art practice, forging external links and exploring how artworks relate to the audience. The course offers the chance for a sustained and serious re-evaluation of existing practices within a critical and supportive environment.
At Middlesex, we take a highly practical and critical approach to fine art that ensures that you spend the majority of your postgraduate study researching and making. This combination of in-depth analysis and hands-on experience will enable you to draw on a diverse range of expertise and resources while questioning and developing your practice in a contemporary context for a stimulating and successful career. Based in our University's £80 million Art and Design School, our course features state-of-the-art facilities with dedicated studio space for each of our MA students (including part-time students) to ensure that we cater for a diverse range of interests and ambitions.
