The MFA is a multidisciplinary programme in which studio practice and contextual enquiry are integrated into the common aims of exploring and promoting new developments in the field of contemporary fine art. Studio practice is supported by the appropriate theoretical frame and by relevant forms of research.
The programme is practice-led and process oriented in relation to artistic practice. It is also committed to the acquisition of theoretical principles within aesthetic thought and the development of rigorous research methods relevant to innovatory studio practice, the production of ground-breaking art and the critical interrogation of the artist's role in society.
