The MA Fine Art programme, run by the Dublin School of Creative Arts at DIT, offers a unique opportunity for focussed study in an interdisciplinary environment that mixes studio practice with intellectual and historical inquiry.
The programme is one of five delivered through the Creative Arts Masters Platform. Students on the MA Fine Art programme will join those on the other studio-based programmes in Interior Design, Visual Communications, and Product Design, and those on the Contemporary Visual Culture programme, where students study the theory and criticism of contemporary visual culture or the history of art and design. The Platform allows specialisation within a dynamic mix of practical and critical disciplines, placing particular emphasis upon practice engaged with critical and historical debate.
The MA Fine Art is a twelve-month, full-time or twenty-four-month part-time programme divided between core modules, including Discourses in Contemporary Art and Design, Research Methods, and a Discipline-Specific Seminar Series, and modules designed to provide core and advanced studio skills. In the third semester, students deliver a final project in their specialisation.
Fine Art students will benefit from state-of-the-art printing and 3-D workshops, off-campus Project Spaces, and individual on-campus studios during the third semester, when students will deliver their final project.
Part-time students will take a total of 25 credits of coursework in the first year, and 55 credits in the second year.
