The Art, Space and Nature - MFA/MA programme offers a multidisciplinary framework to explore the complex intersections between creative practice, spatial theory and environmental issues, as a critical response to the world around us.
It is structured through a series of contextual assignments to assert the values of real world engagement and issue-led practice, interrelated with theory and skill-based learning, allowing you to consider both the theoretical and practical context of your work.
Multidisciplinary studies enable you to explore comparative modes of creative methods and techniques, to equip you with a greater range of knowledge and skills to engage complex environmental contexts.
We attract students from a range of creative and cultural backgrounds, providing a rich internationally diverse group, who develop as culturally astute, politically aware and visually perceptive individuals.
Travel is encouraged to explore comparative regional contexts, to establish a sophisticated global perspective on current environmental issues, preparing you to enter the increasingly dynamic fields of creative and cultural industries, or advanced doctoral research.
How you will study
The programme provides regular teaching input covering art, architecture and landscape planning, complemented by seminars in cultural geography, social media and environmental theory. This offers a dynamic learning process to engage ideas across varying contextual and disciplinary boundaries, leading to fresh insights and new ways of thinking that inform advanced modes of visual and spatial practice.
Our studio is enhanced by two integrated gallery spaces, offering project spaces with a street interface and an internal cinema space, providing a unique resource to test innovative ideas. You will benefit from a range of professionally-aligned projects that are hosted in these spaces, and direct contact with established researchers and practitioners, providing a platform to share ideas and project opportunities through regular lively events.
