Master of Arts in Fine Art
MA Fine Art opens windows on the visual world while mapping a broad spectrum of phenomena and attitudes connected to that visual world - and to life itself. Besides traditional fine art forms such as painting, sculpture, and photography, the programme focuses on many transmedial forms of visual expression. These include media art, the exploration of social/urban environments, and the construction of visual knowledge.
