Master of Letters in Fine Art Practice
The Master of Letters (MLitt) in Fine Art Practice is a postgraduate programme in the School of Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art (GSA). It is an intensive 12-month-long taught programme, with five specialist pathways: Painting; Photography and the Moving Image; Print Media; Drawing; and Sculpture. The programme is studio-based and centred on practice, and is intended to provide opportunities for students to pursue in-depth subject specific study in fine art practice at postgraduate level.

The Sculpture pathway provides unrivaled studios and workshop facilities in the centre of the city, with access to high-end workshops and exhibition spaces, offering ambitious working opportunities in terms of scale, space and install.

Photography & The Moving Image
The Photography & The Moving Image pathway specialises in the use of the camera and other lens-based media to investigate the problems and issues of making art with photographic and time-based technologies and practices.

Print Media
The emphasis throughout the Print Media pathway will be the development of ideas related to the techniques and applications available through print. Whilst grounded in the history and traditions of printmaking this pathway seeks to explore print as a contemporary fine art medium.

The Painting pathway will encompass both the realisation of ideas through historical painting methodologies and processes and the engagement with the newer territories of the expanded field in painting. Equal importance is placed on the development of practical and conceptual skills, facilitated by practice-based workshops, surgeries and seminars.

Drawing has always and will continue to be a direct process in terms of the realisation of ideas in visual terms. The Drawing pathway will address the inclusivity of drawing, it’s capacity for exploration, investigation and discovery and will embrace historical and contemporary approaches.

Master of Letters in Curatorial Practice

MLitt in Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art)
This 12-month MLitt programme, jointly run by The Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, is embedded within the city, drawing on its community of artists, gallery professionals, institutions and international connections. Taught by dedicated staff and guest faculty, including curators and artists, the programme strikes a balance between discourse and practice. Working in different contexts, including a dedicated studio space at the heart of the School of Fine Art, participants develop their individual interests, hone their thinking and acquire practical professional skills whilst initiating and producing real exhibitions, projects and events.

Five fully funded SFC places are available to Scots/EU students on this programme and will be awarded through interview.
