Fine Art looks for new ways of understanding the world and our place in it by using new and traditional techniques and materials to create original and expressive works of art. The BA in Fine Art aims to equip the student with the appropriate skills to realise ideas,foster an articulate and critical understanding of contemporary art and help them develop their own unique creative potential as a professional artist.
Graduates go on to become professional artists. Many graduates also continue to pursue postgraduate study in Ireland or abroad and also find employment in the cultural and creative industries working in galleries and studios as arts officers, curators and arts administrators. The BA in Fine Art is registered with the Teaching Council of Ireland and some graduates pursue a career as art and design teachers.
