What Will You Study
Lancaster's degree in Fine Art and Film, taught by the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA), gives you the opportunity to study art practice alongside the history and theory of film.
Your Fine Art courses will provide you with the opportunity to integrate Art Practice with Art History/Theory at a high level. Throughout your degree you will develop creative and technical skills in painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art and their hybrids. We have no ‘house style’ so you will develop the practice and ideas that best reflect your aims and values as a young artist. Your tutors will be professional artists and publishing historians/theorists and the mix of academic and creative skills gained at Lancaster makes you highly attractive for postgraduate study and employers.
Film at Lancaster is a stimulating and intellectually engaging course which provides a framework for the close analysis of individual films. You will study cinema history and the social significance of films and will develop a detailed understanding of the techniques of film production. You will also have the opportunity to produce short films in all three years of your study. You can choose from a range of specialist courses and will develop skills that can lead to postgraduate study and careers in the media, advertising and marketing.
You'll begin your degree with core modules including Modernism in the Arts, An Introduction to Film Studies, and Fine Art Practice. In your second year, you'll study subjects such as Studio Practice, Global Cinema and our LICA interdisciplinary module Critical Reflections. You will then complete your degree by choosing from a selection of Fine Art and Film modules on offer such as Documentary Drawing, Contemporary Fine Art Practitioners, and Film and Comic Books.
