Masters in Visual Arts

Visual arts are forms of art that focus on creating pieces of work that mainly make use of the visual environment, while trying to convey messages of emotion, ideas or information. The field of visual arts covers three main sub-fields: fine art (painting, drawing, graphics, sculpture, architecture), decorative art (tapestry, ceramics, mosaic art, glass art, jewellery art) and contemporary art (artistic photography, art print, video art, animation, graffiti art). This discipline relates to similar disciplines such as art and art history, graphic design and cultural studies.
Students of visual arts usually have the chance to learn about visual expression culture, post-modernism, animation, art history, film, graphic design, photography, print media, and more.
Graduates will gain general competencies to explore the artistic message expressed in visual language, as well as conduct functional or aesthetic creations using various basic materials and techniques. They will gain knowledge of design techniques, master the use of colour and understand theories of composition.
Career opportunities for visual arts graduates include: desktop publisher, photographer, make-up artist, drafter, craft artist, exhibition designer, glass blower, graphic designer, illustrator.
