With the OCA you can choose a specialist degree route if you have a particular discipline you’re interested in, but alternatively the BA (Hons) Creative Arts degree route provides an exciting opportunity if you have a passion for more than one creative arts practice.

It allows you to choose from the range of courses, combining the study of art, creative writing, art history, printmaking, sculpture, film making, music, visual communications and photography. You may choose to study poetry and music, for example, or art alongside creative writing.

The range of choices available through the Creative Arts degree is exceptional, enabling you to build the programme around your interests. Our MA in Fine Art is the only distance learning programme of its kind in Europe and is an ideal course for artist practitioners, art teachers, tutors and graduates wishing to take their studies further.

The OCA’s Undergraduate degree structure

Through accreditation of previous study or of a portfolio of work it may be possible to gain credits which provide exemption from some Level 1 and 2 course units. The MA programme follows a different structure, please view the MA Fine Art page for more details.
