Course overview

This course offers the opportunity to explore the boundaries of contemporary visual arts practice across a range of media for example:

  • 2D/3D media
  • printmaking
  • photographic arts
  • ceramics
  • sculpture
  • drawing
  • painting
  • digital arts
  • critical theory

This course offers two routes through the programme of study.

It provides the opportunity to either explore visual arts practice across a range of media or the opportunity to analyse and theorise issues within visual culture through independent research and writing. The context of your artistic practice will be within a broad Fine Art/Art and Design/Media framework.

You can specialise in a particular media area or work across different media.

As an Arts and Media student, you will have the opportunity to learn from both practitioners and experienced professionals. You will work with artists and designers a well as local and national galleries, museums and exhibitions. You will develop your creative ability within a well-resourced learning environment which offers excellent studio and workshop facilities. Students will also achieve PgDip and PgCert awards in this course.
