The School offers a flourishing undergraduate programme (BFA), a Masters in Fine Art (MFA) and an established postgraduate DPhil programme made up of both practice-led and theory-based doctoral students. It also supports a wide-ranging portfolio of art-making and research activities by its students, staff and visiting scholars in which fine art is prized as a vital component of contemporary culture with a broad range of practical, historical and theoretical references.
The Ruskin’s intimate size and its dedication to fine art practice and theory within a stimulating and dynamic interdisciplinary structure allows it to sustain close relations with other academic departments across the University and with the University museums.The Ruskin is committed to the highest standards of teaching and research and to identifying innovative and accessible ways of strengthening the profile of fine art for the benefit of the scholarly community and the wider public.
