The two-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) provides an immersive education in the development of professional practice as an ecologically oriented artist while the one-year MA provides a Masters-level education in art appropriate for a diverse range of applications.
Studio Research provides for the development of artistic practice alongside students of the MFA/MA in Studio Art. These modules provide for studio-based experimentation and innovation, leading to the production of a substantial body of work. Studio Methodologies is a series of taught studio courses examining the methodology of Art & Ecology, with reference to historical examples. Theory and Art & Ecology consist of seminars contextualising the theoretical framework of Art & Ecology. In addition, Environmental Studies draws on expertise from within the College of Science at NUI Galway in engaging with scientific approaches to ecology, with the first module led by an environmental scientist.
