Art - Fine Art

What is... Fine Art?
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.
