The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) provides a development opportunity for students who have an interest in establishing themselves as professional artists or scholars, or career designers, filmmakers, or photographers. This Master's encourages participants to explore the latest trends, develop their own ideas, and build their confidence in the public realm.
UC offers the MFA in Film, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture.
The Ilam School of Fine Arts | Te Kura Kōwaiwai provides opportunities to gain valuable exhibition experience through an ongoing professional relationship with the Christchurch Art Gallery | Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
