Overview Our four BA Fine Art degree pathways embrace fine art as an open discipline constructed from many different studio practices and a critical involvement with ideas, culture and society. You will explore a range of artistic practices (including installation, performance, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, digital arts, film and video) through making, research and critique. Our suite of BA degrees opens the door to a wide range of creative and professional possibilities. Why study BA Fine Art at Middlesex University?
