What Will You Study

Lancaster's degree in Fine Art and Film, taught by the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts , gives you the opportunity to study art practice alongside the history and theory of film.

Your Fine Art modules will provide you with the opportunity to integrate Art Practice with Art History/Theory at a high level. Throughout your degree you will have the opportunity to develop creative and technical skills in painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art and their hybrids. We have a wide ranging view of what fine Art can be in the 21st century and have no ‘house style’. Our aim is for you to develop the practice and ideas that best reflect your aims and values as a young Fine 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 offers stimulating and intellectually engaging modules, which provide 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.
