Due to a high demand in former students and graduates wishing to study at post-graduate level at Hereford College of Arts, we have spent the past few months researching and submitting a proposed Masters programme to the University of Wales, and we are delighted to announce this is now to go through to validation very shortly.
MA in Fine and Applied Arts
The MA in Fine and Applied Arts is a studio based programme which seeks to develop students' art practice to a professional standard and is designed to help them establish new parameters of intention and enquiry. This reflective practice takes place through continuous theoretical discourse and advancement of studio practice. This commitment to an intense and focussed examination of personal concerns will be structured by the student and will emerge from the skills and achievement of undergraduate study or a prior substantial engagement in professional practice. The MA is a distinct and self-contained qualification as well as a learning opportunity to progress to further study or professional practice. The culmination of the MA is demonstrated via a public exhibition and publication of a body of research presented to a professional standard and would normally include evidence of practical studio work, critical evaluations contextualising contemporary and historical practices and evidence of underpinning research strategies.
MA Fine and Applied Arts aims to provide students with the opportunity to:
- develop a sophisticated body of work which is theoretically informed, innovative and self-sustained
- develop a confident and advanced understanding of their specialist subject and be able to locate their practice within relevant professional, cultural and historical frameworks
- develop interdisciplinary approaches to the study of Fine and Applied Arts at Masters level and in the process investigate other practices within and beyond the discipline
- develop research skills appropriate to their own area of practice that will equip them for further advanced practice at a professional level or advanced study/research
- develop a range of entrepreneurial, business and professional skills underpinning their specialist field of practice
The course is modular in structure comprising of 4x30 credit modules and 1x60 credit module for the award of Masters (180 credits) with Exit Awards at Postgraduate Certificate stage(60 credits) and Postgraduate Diploma stage (120 credits), and will delivered across three semesters . The course may be studied in full-time or part-time mode, or combinations of these options.
