You are encouraged to explore and unpick your own working strategies and methods, in the context of broader cultural and educational differences offered by the course and your peers, in order to explore how ‘detour permits access’ (Jullien, 2004). The resulting tensions form the very fabric of this Fine Art course, as deliberate cross-cultural dialogue provides a vehicle for your working rationales, practices and methodologies.
The Fine Art programme from Arts University Bournemouth represents an exciting opportunity for students to challenge and build on their previous achievements and to study at an advanced level. Students deepen their knowledge and their ability to focus on their chosen field in relation to the key aspects that inform it.
Set within a community and culture of makers, students engage in dialogue and debate with their peers, both within and across MA pathways.
This experience provides dynamic and interactive sessions, which are vital to the enhancement and testing of new thinking and ideas generation as well as offering the broadest available critical arena for discussion of student work.

- The course is delivered through three equally weighted units of study. The first unit ‘Strategies for Practice’ encourages a re-visiting of a fundamental understanding of materials, methods and contexts of fine art regardless of a students’ level of experience. Although, some strategies may be familiar, you will be encouraged to analyse and critically evaluate how and why they are manifested in your practice.
- As the ‘Strategies for Practice’ unit progresses you will be encouraged to survey promising areas of investigation in preparation for Navigation and Transformation and Audience and Resolution.
- You will identify theories relevant to your emerging study focus and methods appropriate to these concerns for generating new knowledge and understanding in the Body of Work and the Contextual Journal. There is no expectation at this stage for these ideas or work to be resolved.
