Online Masters in Visual Arts

Top Online Masters Programs in Visual Arts 2017

Visual Arts

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Visual arts courses often cover skills in aesthetic arts. However, there are many applied art forms included in visual arts courses. These programs can cover graphic design, fashion design, decorative art and industrial design. These can help students prepare for a position in a particular field.  

Since all classes are online, students will not have to appear at classes. Schedules may not be as stringent when taking lessons online. Students can work on and carry out assignments when they are ready and at their personal pace. In several online degree courses, students are not expected to take elective classes unless needed by their major. This allows students to zero in on and study particularly what they need to learn for their business. For many students who have a passion for to learn information relevant to their major, online degree programs work excellent as this approach will save time and aid students gain their degree faster.

Top Online Master's Degrees in Visual Arts. This postgraduate course has been developed to enable students to respond to demands of a rapidly changing industry. Those changes are being driven by government strategy, the demands of building information modelling (BIM) and the widespread use of architectural visualisation techniques. The course will allow you to develop a deep understanding of visualisation techniques, their implications for design, construction and collaboration, and the ways in which they will affect your discipline area and working practice in the future. The course contains hands-on experience with a range of software packages, providing a foundation upon which students can develop their ideas and project work. Building on our expertise in a range of visualisation fields, the course contains modules dealing specifically with building information modelling (BIM1 and BIM2), design visualisation, urban visualisation, virtual collaboration and information visualisation. The course culminates in a student-led dissertation or advanced visualisation project. Each module contains a practical introduction to key software and techniques, although it should be stressed that the course emphasis is on application and critical evaluation, rather than on software training. Entry requirements We welcome applicants holding an honours degree in architecture, architectural technology, surveying, engineering, planning or any associated discipline. The course will also be of interest to graduates from a design background, including interior design and product design. Applicants who comply with any of the following criteria should apply: - A good Honours degree in any discipline from a recognised university. - Applicants who do not hold an Honours degree but who have relevant industry experience over a reasonable time period will be considered. - For international students 6.5 IELTS or its equivalent in TOEFL is required. Course Fee All Students - £2400 Stage 1 - £2400 Stage 2 - £1600 Stage 3 All course fees are reviewed annually and subject to change. Published fees apply to the course's mode of delivery. [-]

Masters in Screen Studies

Birmingham City University Faculty of Art, Design and Media
Campus or Online Full time Part time 1 - 3  September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham + 1 more

MA Screen Studies plunges you deep into the latest debates around the function and importance of screen based media within a rapidly-changing media landscape. Drawing on a combination of film and television theory, the Screen Studies master’s degree at Birmingham School of Media, encourages you to actively participate in, and contribute to the development of ideas in the field and to the strong research culture of the school. This media theory geared master’s degree, available on-campus or by distance learning, gives you space to think about the ways in which audiences make sense of media, as well as the formal and aesthetic qualities of media texts, as a way into exploring your own practice or scholarly or media research interests. Convergence Culture The point of departure for MA Screen Studies is what Henry Jenkins famously described as ‘convergence culture.’ Increasingly, audiences watch television online, through mobile or tablet devices, and access movies through a range of platforms and formats, cinema being just one. The ability to make and broadcast video has begun to change the ways in which we understand the relationships between producers and consumers. Media convergence is about much more than technological change, and in this master’s degree you will explore new ways of thinking about production, distribution and consumption of screen-based media and our relationship to it. Key Facts The Screen Studies MA reflects the changing nature of the media industries and the need for postgraduate study to cross disciplinary boundaries. The master’s degree is a mix of theory and practice, determined by you. You will be actively involved in assessment design; you produce the work that you want to be assessed. The MA course is adaptable and designed to reflect your individual interests and needs. You'll be taught by a team of highly active academic researchers and media practitioners. [+]

Entry Requirements

Anyone undertaking this course must possess an upper second class bachelor’s degree or higher in a relevant subject area. Previous study in Film, Media and or Cultural Studies or professional experience would be an advantage. We particularly welcome non-traditional applications, particularly from applicants with some professional or production experience. We therefore accredit prior experiential learning.
