The BA (Hons) Fine Art programme at University Centre at Blackburn College provides a platform for both traditional and contemporary art practice. The Fine Art degree facilitates opportunities for our students to make art works in any media, engage in practice led research and develop their practice as critically engaged participants in the local, national and indeed global community.
