About

The Fine Art postgraduate programme from the University of Northampton enables you to evaluate and develop your creative practice to the highest standards. It develops theoretical awareness, critical thinking and independent arts practice to a professional level.

Overview

This Fine Art postgraduate programme from the University of Northampton facilitates critical debate between artists working within and across media areas including painting, photography, digital imaging, printmaking, sculpture, installation and site-specific art. Alongside your studio-based enquiry, you will undertake related research into the broader context of contemporary art practices and theoretical debates.

You will benefit from spacious and well-equipped facilities and links with galleries, including the Milton Keynes Gallery, NN Contemporary (Northampton), Corby Cube Gallery and Rugby Museum and Art Gallery. The course often offers international study trips, typically one European option and one long-haul destination. Recent visits have included France, Italy, Spain, India, Vietnam and the USA.

As well as the existing connections between this course and regional galleries and art organisations, you are encouraged to engage with external activities and events, nationally and internationally. A group of MA Fine Art students also attended a printmaking residency at the world-renowned Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium.
