This unique and prestigious programme integrates theory with practice to produce high calibre and critically aware artist graduates.Youâ??ll develop an ambitious and creative body of work produced in our excellent studio facilities, supported by artist-lecturers and visiting practitioners. Your portfolio is also informed and enriched by modules in art history, museum and curatorial studies and cultural and media theory â?? all put into context through a practice-related dissertation. Studio work is complemented by a series of professional practice modules in which you acquire skills that will give you the skills to pursue a wide range of art-related careers.
Level 1: Studio practice comprises of 4 x 5 week project periods, each led by different members of staff; in art history there is a questioning of modes of representation with the 'A story of art?', a series of 4 short modules providing a critical examination of the way art and visual culture, from the primitive through classical and medieval, to the modern and post-modern, has been perceived, interpreted and often misinterpreted; secondly, through the elements of visual culture modules, students are introduced to various ways in which the history and theory of art connect with the actual practice of art, close-reading texts and theorising visual art and culture with a view to enhancing their own self-directed learning in both written and practical contexts. Level 2: Comprises of 50% studio practice with the remaining half of study being a combination of art history and elective modules; electives are chosen by the student from a large array of university wide modules, though additional modules in art history or studio practice can be undertaken. Level 3: 2 options: model 'A' weighted towards studio practice and model 'B' towards art history/theory; both options include studio and critical theory modules; the critical studies/theory module ('practice in context') explores how art is presented and historicised and builds upon the history and theory developed in levels 1 and 2; this provides a framework in which students contextualise their own studio work within contemporary art practice and theory; this could be presented using a wide variety of traditional methods or new media technologies e.g. from written texts to web sites; whilst option 'A' allows the scope to fully develop a critically engaged studio practice, option 'B' allows particular students to develop their art history and theory interests to a greater level than ever before.
