Art and Design

Forth Valley College


Stirling Campus


Unique to Forth Valley College, this new general first year degree programme is ideal for those who would like to try a range of art and design activities before defining their specialism.

The vast majority of degree programmes now require you to study either Art or Design, there are no such barriers within this interdisciplinary programme. In year 1 you will have the opportunity to work across a broad range of specialisms. You will carry out a variety of art and design based projects, deciding on a specialism by Easter, supported by feedback and advice from staff. Your practical project work will support a growing critical and contextual understanding of art and design theory.
