About the Courses


MA Interdisciplinary Arts

The Interdisciplinary Arts Practices MA programmes are located within the School of Arts between the fields of Fine Art and Music. The Department is situated within the School of Arts known nationally and internationally for the strength of its research culture.
The programme is comprised of four taught postgraduate courses for visual-artists, composers and interdisciplinary practitioners. These include:
• MA Composition and Sonic Art
• MA Contemporary Arts
• MA Contemporary Arts & Music
• MA Social Sculpture

These courses locate creative practice in an interdisciplinary context and have been designed for visual and sonic artists, composers and musicians working in a broad spectrum of media. They are of particular relevance to students wishing to expand the scope of their creative practices by questioning boundaries, initiating shifts in perception, and embarking on work relevant to contemporary life. A concern for location, context and audience is a central aspect of the program.

Funding opportunities

Things to note about the AHRC:

• If you wish to apply for an AHRC award you must first discuss this with the Postgraduate Administrator for Arts as you will need full support from the School.
• We would recommend that you make the application under the AHRC’s ‘Research Preparation’ scheme.
• You must already have been offered a place on a postgraduate course before you can apply for AHRC funding.

MA Fine Art: Drawing for Fine Art Practice

Delivered by Swindon College, School of Art as part of the OBU Associate College Partnership. This is a practice-based Masters programme offered as either full or part-time routes. The programme aims to make a contribution to the strengthening position of Fine Art Drawing as a major component of visual art production, promoting the language of drawing as a broad, experimental code that underpins so much of contemporary Fine Art practice, research and pedagogy.

As perhaps the oldest form of communication, drawing has remained a form of invention and revaluation in Fine Art practice. Students will be invited to re-evaluate their practice through studio investigation and critical analysis, considering the context in which the work is made and how the work operates conceptually, contextually and aesthetically. Investigation into a range of related practices, including those in the boundaries between drawing and other Fine Art disciplines from traditional works on paper, to painting, digital technologies and multidisciplinary approaches will be promoted. Study will culminate in a major body of practical work at the MA degree show.

This course is being delivered on the Swindon College Campus.
