MA (Hons) Fine Art (5-year Undergraduate programme that combines Fine Art and History of Art)
What’s different about this programme?
Fine Art MA (Hons) is a five-year undergraduate degree, which unlike many other Fine Art degrees, is an equal split between History of Art and studio-based art practice. In the first two years, you will study core courses in both Art and History of Art, alongside a choice of courses offered by ECA and other Schools within the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. You will have the opportunity to learn from specialists in a variety of periods and geographies. We offer courses in Global Art, including Chinese, Islamic, Pre-Hispanic and South Asian art; pre-modern, modernist, and contemporary European artistic movements, among them the Italian Renaissance, European Modernism and Scottish art; as well contemporary eco-critical art, feminist art and activism, and arts and crafts movements. In third and fourth years, you will choose from a range of specialised topics in History of Art and develop a more independent approach to your studio practice in Art. In you final year, you will write a 10,000-word dissertation a research topic of your own choosing and develop a body of work which you will exhibit in the Degree Show.
