Sunderland's MA Curating is one of the few courses in the UK to specialise in curating across art, design, media and culture and has a unique delivery system which aims to fit the needs of national and international working arts professionals, as well as full-time international students.

Course overview

This course is for people who want to work either in the traditional areas of curating fine art and cultural artefacts or in emerging areas such as curating digital art, media or live art. We will equip you for careers in the gallery, non-gallery and digital sectors.

The second intensive block will take place in London in February, accessing key curators and institutions during visits to organisations including Tate, V&A, and Wellcome Collection.

This block is also available as a professional development short course, building on a history of masterclasses including in New York and the UK. With accreditation of prior learning, this 60-credit block can also be taken as an accredited qualification leading to a Postgraduate Diploma.

Graduates from Sunderland can be found in curatorial and academic roles across the world, in cities such as New York, Stuttgart, Vancouver and London. Our graduates are also employed here in the North East by galleries and archival services.

You will be taught by academic staff with research interests that range across art, design, media and culture, with particular specialisms in public art, performance art, and new media art.

Interiors can be viewed as places where people relate to one another. They can be designed to play host to any human activity and give shape to it in the process. Indoor environments communicate with their users by involving them in physical, emotional, and social terms. Interior design is one of the most dynamic areas in the field of design as a whole. This area of endeavor now includes and reaches beyond the traditional definition of designing architecture’s intimate elements. And the change has had direct effects on the profession of interior designer.

This Specializing Master is devoted to those who wish to specialize in planning interiors, from large public spaces to private areas, from offices to places for entertaining. Upon completing the program, students are to have acquired a strategic vision of the project, the method, and the technical skills they will need to work as qualified professionals in the field.
At the end of the Master, participants will have acquired capacities and strategic visions about project. They will be able to collaborate at an higher level with design studios as Interior Designer or Corporate Consultant, to work for real estate services, distribution, hospitality or furniture industries
