Course detail

- Description -

Semester One:

Debates and Controversies (30 credit points). This module examines some of the major debates in Historical studies today. The debates and controversies chosen are not exhaustive but are instead exemplars of why historians over disagree over sources, methods, politics, and other factors, and why historical works can be so different. At the same time the module will respond to a diversity of student interests by offering students an opportunity to develop their own reading and historical insights.

Themes in History (30 credit points). This module offers students the opportunity to explore themes in History that draw upon areas of particular staff specialism and that will develop and deepen their knowledge and understand. Divided into three themes of four weeks each, each block will examine key questions, sources and approaches within a theme. We will offer 4-5 themes each cycle to enable a degree of choice within the module’s teaching and learning programme.

Semester Two:

Research Methods for Historical Research (30 credit points). This module will provide students with the appropriate research skills necessary for study at postgraduate level, ranging from advanced usage of the library’s rich range of digitised primary sources to the exploitation of free sites and the development of a comprehensive and relevant bibliography for the dissertation. Sessions are designed to help students fit their emerging research question explicitly within the framework of available secondary and primary sources and to develop strategies for obtaining the most benefit possible from such resources. The module also allows students to practise and develop their oral presentation skills.

Special Topic in History (30 credit points). This module encourages focused study of one field of staff expertise. It is taught by individual consultation and a series of group sessions that encourage group support and shared reflection on the research process. Examined by an extended essay, the module will foster deep engagement with specifically related clusters of historical texts.

Semester Three:

Dissertation (60 credit points). This module is an independent piece of research on an aspect of historical studies that interests you. Students set the agenda and are guided by some general sessions at the beginning and by individual supervision sessions throughout the semester. The final dissertation is approximately 15,000 words in length.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

Students are taught by lectures, seminars and individual tutorials.

The course is assessed by written essays, presentations and a long piece of extended writing (the dissertation).

Career options

Students graduating with the MA in History are well-prepared to undertake a variety of occupations. Some students will progress to doctoral research and academic careers. Others will become teachers or lecturers in further education. Not all MA graduates become teachers or university lecturers. Other options include work in libraries, archives, museums, or full-time work in research for charities, official organisations, government, etc. Others may go into marketing advertising, publishing, the civil service or politics. Our MA programmes have been known to help teachers advance their careers. Others pursue these degrees purely through interest and a love of the past. All graduate occupational outcomes are enhanced by a higher qualification such as this.

The MFA Design provides a learning environment and context that transcends the traditional disciplines within design and ranges from the physical and tangible to the virtual and digital, offering the opportunity for an individual to develop their specific design and making skills, at Masters level, in relation to other areas of design practice. The course is a hot bed of creativity where each student is asked to challenge their current thinking, explore new possibilities, engage in the current debates surrounding design practice and through this become advanced specialists in their own practice whilst potentially creating new territories of practice.

Course detail

MFA Design responds to continuing changes in contemporary design practice and challenges the perceived boundaries between the many and varied recognised art and design disciplines.

The course currently supports the areas of: Ceramics, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interaction Design, Jewellery, Silversmithing, and Textiles.

MFA Design was previously known as MFA Multidisciplinary Design. In the redesign of the course, additional staff members have joined the core team, and we now support a range of design disciplines.This richness of knowledge and experience of academic and technical staff enhances the student experience on the program, and opens up additional possibilities for collaboration and innovation, whilst maintaining the rigour in technical, research and development skills required of a masters student.

This change to the course team has also realigned the course to focus on the attainment of advanced, sustainable, skilled practice through research, which is made possible through the technical and specialist facilities available within Belfast School of Art.The course retains the emphasis of entrepreneurship which was a unique strength of the previous version of the program and is built upon tried and tested models developed in conjunction with NESTA (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts) in recognition of the essential skills necessary for a successful, sustainable practice within the rapidly growing creative industries.

Through ongoing questioning and development during the course a student may identify themselves with a variety of outcomes such as;

Designer Maker – Leading to self employment, professional designer, setting up a SME

Design Researcher – Leading to PhD, research fellowships

Designer Leader – Leading to business leadership or Strategic Thinker within the creative industries.

MArch explores architecture that responds to the complex and changing context of architecture and urbanism and the transformations taking place in society. Urban investigations and an awareness of the shifting conditions of the contemporary city with its differing social structures, geography, culture, climate, economics, energy consumption, technologies and urban patterns, will form the basis of the MArch studio research. Experimentation, critical reflection, debate and a diversity of approaches are encouraged through different practices and methods in order to locate and establish informed positions and skills.

Key benefits

- Based in one of the most culturally significant cities in Europe, the two-year Master of Architecture programme at the Belfast School of Architecture offers a distinctive, exciting and dynamic research-led learning experience leading to exemption from the ARB/RIBA part 2 examination.

- We provide a friendly and supportive learning environment to help you feel at home and make an easy transition to university life.

- We invest significantly in our facilities to provide the best learning experience. Our £250 million Belfast campus redevelopment represents a new chapter for Ulster, providing a state-of-the-art teaching and learning facility in the heart of the city.

Visit the website: http://www.ulster.ac.uk/courses/course-finder/201718/architecture-9723

Course detail

- Description -

The overall intention of Year 1 is to progress from discussing wider global architectural issues to then progressively focus on a very particular context where you can explore different interpretations of what architecture means, before developing individual proposals based on rigorous investigation and research. You will be asked to compile your research into a research fieldbook and then to share your knowledge in a collaborative way. Crits and discussions for the project will often take place in the chosen project context, opening up the process to a more public discourse.

Year 1 students will build on this exercise by undertaking an international study-trip to further inform your understanding of current issues and the relationship between project ideas and the urban/social context of the city in question. MArch students have previously investigated cities such as Boston, Berlin and Barcelona.

Year 2 of the MArch begins by exploring architectural ideas in a more oblique way than just starting a design thesis with a site and brief. These explorations will allow you to cultivate potential ideas and research for your thesis project in a less linear way and which aims to enable you to position yourself relative to the wider culture and debates at an advanced level in the discipline of architecture. The final year design thesis projects are all deliberately located in Belfast, to engage the city the school is rooted in. This allows a unique type of engagement with current issues and the changing urban nature of Belfast.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

The Master of Architecture programme uses a full range of teaching and learning scenarios. There are two main learning activities: Taught Study and Self-Directed Study:

- Taught studies include such activities as reviews (reviews of work, sometimes known in architecture as crits/critiques), tutorials (individual and group), seminars (staff and student led), workshops and demonstrations.

- Self-directed study is carried out within the module timetable but without time-tabled staff contact. You are expected to carry out such activities as ideas development, research, designing, drawing, reading, writing etc.

Career options

Graduates are working in many different practices both nationally and internationally on a range of exciting building and urban projects. The knowledge gained during this professional degree (i.e. RIBA Part II) will not only support a wide range of employment opportunities in architecture practices, urban design bodies, architecture conservation organisations, and many governmental and private relevant institutions but also facilitate the route to a PhD level research.
