Undergraduate in Fine Arts

Our multidisciplinary Degree in Fine Arts offers not only traditional approaches to drawing, painting and sculpting, but also allows you to specialise in contemporary practices, such as photography, video production, animation and the use of digital technologies.

During your time at the UGR, you will have the opportunity to study in a city with a tremendous historical, cultural and artistic heritage. Granada was the last city to be reconquered by the Catholic Monarchs in 1492 after almost eight centuries of Moorish rule. The Alhambra palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the most notable example of this artistic legacy. The city also offers a broad range of cultural events, activities and festivals held throughout the year.

As a student on this course, you will gain the necessary skills to create your own artwork independently, by learning how to effectively employ a multitude of techniques, technological tools and project management strategies. You will also learn about the culture industry, the problems contemporary artists face while working within it, and how to solve them. Students also learn how to develop the critical and analytical tools required in order to assess individual artworks and the role of art in society.

Our degree offers practical courses in a wide variety of disciplines, such as drawing, painting, photography, video production, animation, comics and illustration, ceramics, figure painting, abstract painting or casting.

Theoretical knowledge on the history of art, aesthetics, contemporary art theories, art analysis, the public and private institutions that promote art, legislation that regulates intellectual property and copyright, provide our graduates with the tools to develop their ability to critically analyse the social, philosophical and cultural factors that influence artistic movements.

Recently, there has been a noticeable increase in the demand for artists, designers and professionals skilled in the arts and visual cultures. Creativity, which is inevitably linked to art, is nowadays one of the most valued attributes in the job market.
