Programme Overview

Sculpture & Environmental Art at The Glasgow School of Art is one of the few specialist undergraduate programmes in the UK, and the only one in Scotland, dedicated to exploring relationships between object-making, art in public and social engagement, underpinned by contemporary critical and cultural debates and conditions. Sculpture & Environmental Art is taught by practising artists and researchers at the forefront of the field and is designed for students dedicated to achieving both artistic excellence and cultural relevance in our fast-changing world. Renowned for our globally successful and locally engaged practising alumni, including Turner Prize winners and nominees past and present, Sculpture & Environmental Art is a diverse community of practice situated within Glasgow's distinct and dynamic artistic and cultural ecology. All GSA degree programmes are validated by the University of Glasgow.
