The MA in Art History and Curating offers a theoretical and critical approach to the study of art history and curatorial practice. Read more
The MA in Art History and Curating offers a theoretical and critical approach to the study of art history and curatorial practice. Focusing mainly on the modern period (19th and 20th centuries), the programme will address key developments in art and art history up to the present day. For students who do not wish to undertake a full MA, a Postgraduate Certificate is also available.

The programme would appeal to graduates who have studied Fine Art, Art History or any other Arts and Humanities discipline, or those from non arts backgrounds wishing to pursue a new subject. It will also appeal to those already working in the museums or galleries sector wishing to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD). There are opportunities to participate in overseas study tours and in recent years the department has visited Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bilbao, Milan, Paris, Florence, Venice and New York. London visits and regional exhibition visits may also take place, depending on the exhibition programme for the year. The Arts play a significant and growing role in wealth creation and the regeneration of urban and rural environments. Visiting galleries and museums has never been more popular. The numbers of Art Education and heritage sites are expanding and all look to recruit postgraduates with a background in the Arts and Art History.

Study Details / Module Information

At the outset you will be introduced to the Art History and Curating programme through a series of lectures, seminars and tutorials, delivered by specialist academic staff. Your tutors will provide you with a firm foundation and knowledge of visual cultures and applied arts primarily in Europe and the U.S. enabling you to understand your own learning and study needs within the context of the subject. A contextual journal is introduced that will underpin your academic studies facilitating a personal and individual perspective.

You will continue to develop your theoretical skills through continuous tutorial consultation and supervision enabling you to devise your own work programme from the range of courses on offer. Teaching is by lectures, seminars, tutorials and gallery visits to enable the first hand study of artworks; their context and curation. We expect a critical approach towards writing with an awareness of contemporary art practice and the historical socio-political and cultural forces that inform it. Your programme of study will be agreed with your subject tutors, and will make full use of the museums and galleries on Merseyside and beyond.

About the MSc programme

This programme focuses on understanding the dynamics of humanitarian and complex emergencies as well as providing a solid foundation in development issues such as poverty reduction, wealth creation and the expansion of human capabilities. This is a flexible programme that provides students with an academically rigorous graduate level interdisciplinary training in the fields of international development and humanitarianism. While the core course, Key Issues in Development Studies, and Managning Humanitarianism provides an excellent overview of the key issues and debates in international development, optional courses enable you to shape your studies to your own needs and interests.

A valuable part of the programme is the humanitarian consultancy project, where you work in a small team on a current policy issue for a humanitarian, development or emergency based organisation. Past clients have included UNICEF, UNHCR, the UK Disasters Emergency Committee, DFID, International Alert, the ICRC, MSF, NATO, the UK Army and Save the Children. This exposure to the real world of organisations and practitioners is an excellent experience which will boost your employability.

IEMA Approved for the Associate Certificate in Environmental Management course.

This one-year course is intended for students with a keen interest in integrating environmental management with business practices.

Sustainable development is a principal goal and a key policy feature of many of the major institutes and governments of the world. A key element of achieving sustainable development is the balance of Environmental, Economic and Social development drivers. This course will take an integrated view of environmental management within a business context and will provide the specialist interdisciplinary training that is required to fully integrate sustainable development objectives into businesses management. By integrating modules from Bangor Business School and The School of Environment, Natural Resources and Geography, it will train students to be sophisticated environmental managers who can interpret legislative and audit requirements and deliver them in a manner conducive to continued economic development. The programme includes highly topical case studies from across these sectors reflecting changing strategies and alternative approaches.

Course structure
The course has 2 parts. Part 1 runs from October to May and consists of six taught components and must be completed successfully before proceeding to part 2. Part 2 is the research element of the course, this is where you complete your dissertation and it runs from June to September. You will use your knowledge and skills developed in part 1 to develop your own research ideas and to examine your chosen topic in detail.

Part one subjects:

Organisations and People ASB 4431: To provide an integrated analysis of management, organisations and people, developing the conceptual, strategic and practical skills necessary for managers in complex, global organisational contexts, drawing on key issues arising from contemporary research in organisational behaviour (OB) and human resource management (HRM).

Strategic Management ASB 4413: This module introduces the language of strategic management and explores the link between strategic and operational management. You will develop a critical understanding of the strategic processes that lie at the core of business management processes and how to place strategic decision making within a dynamic business environment.

Finance for Managers ASB 4007: This module is designed for those who aim to achieve a basic understanding of financial management and control, and who require an understanding of finance in order to manage an organisation effectively.

It takes the student through the actual process of developing a business plan and its different components, the market and sustainability.

Key learning themes in this module include:

Strategic Environmental ManagementDXX4524: This module is designed to provide an understanding of the principles of sustainable development, environmental legislation, environmental auditing and assessment, and green technological development. This module has been accredited by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) and successful completion qualifies the student to become an Associate member of IEMA.

With the support of leading researchers, including those working in our Centre for Philosophy of Religion and Centre for Religion and Public Life, you’ll develop a wide range of skills while exploring a subject that is vital for understanding the world we live in.

You’ll find plenty of resources at Leeds to inspire and inform your studies. The Special Collections housed in our world-class Brotherton Library include extensive collections of archive and early printed material, including hundreds of theological works from the 17th century onwards.

This foundation will enable you to gain specialist knowledge in the areas that suit your interests. You’ll choose two optional modules from the range we offer, allowing you to focus on topics such as Muslims and multiculturalism, or philosophical approaches to spirituality.

During the programme you’ll acquire skills in research and interpretation and good social and cultural awareness. You’ll demonstrate this with your dissertation – an independent study on a research topic of your choice – which you’ll submit by the end of the programme in August. You can even go into greater depth if you swap one optional module for an extended dissertation.

If you choose to study part-time, you’ll study over a longer period and take fewer modules in each year.

Overview

Passionate about PR and communications? Want to boost your employment prospects? Southampton Solent’s MA PR & Multimedia Communications programme is designed to help graduates build on traditional paradigms of public relations, exploring critically how the PR industry relates to advertising, marketing and journalism.

With an emphasis on the emergence of ‘peer-to-peer’ communications on digital platforms, this course can help improve the employability of both recent graduates and existing practitioners.

- The course curriculum emphasises content creation and management across paid, owned, earned and shared platforms.
- Students study alongside industry experts with a wealth of first-hand insight to share.
- The course is delivered through interactive seminars. These small group sessions allow for open discussion and regular feedback.
- Students will learn how to commission work and manage relationships with advertising, marketing and brand journalism specialists.
- Work placements and freelance projects are a core part of the curriculum, helping to ensure that students graduate with a range of relevant workplace experience.
- Small class sizes allow for flexibility in the curriculum, helping students to tailor the course to their own interests.
- Assignments can be adapted to suit each student’s unique career ambitions or, if they are working, their employer’s needs.
- Students benefit from a range of guest speakers and practical events including a crisis simulation, an ‘eCampaign’ in a day, and participation in industry events.

The industry -

Modern PR practitioners have to grapple with communication that knows no boundaries. The stakeholder relations manager, the corporate journalist, the digital promoter, the brand content manager - these are the jobs of the future, and the graduates filling these posts will need to know how to do their public relations in an integrated way.

The corporate narrative now has to compete with the user generated content. Traditional news and feature journalism is being pushed aside by citizen journalism and brand journalism, causing PR practitioners to re-think their influencer strategies. Advertisers who were once focused on campaigns in print media are now using rich online content, while native advertising is blurring the lines between public relations and advertising. Those who can surf the waves of this multifaceted world will be the most effective (employable) strategic communicators.

The programme -

As the roles of digital newsroom manager, multimedia advertiser, marketing professional, and corporate PR continue to converge, it is increasingly important that students gain first-hand experience of these functions. With opportunities for networking, live client briefs and portfolio development all built into the course, graduates leave Southampton Solent with a wealth of industry relevant experience to show potential employers.

The ‘Professional Development’ unit gives students work-placement and freelance opportunities, enhancing their professional skillset. Students will also be able to pitch for paid work at Solent Creatives, who specialise in connecting students with businesses who need creative support. These projects can help students to strengthen their portfolio of professional work. For full details of each individual unit, please see the ‘course content’ tab.

Learners are encouraged to carry out additional work experience alongside their regular studies. The course team’s close links with industry have helped past students to negotiate placements at top local and national agencies.

As one of the country’s top creative universities (Which? University Student Survey, 2014), Southampton Solent is proud to offer students a range of high-end media facilities. Students also have the opportunity to access an extensive media loans service, where they can borrow high-end video production and photography equipment.

The course concludes with a major project or dissertation. This is another opportunity for students to specialise their knowledge, conducting in-depth research into an area that complements their unique career ambitions.

Course Content

Units include:

- PR in a Multimedia World (30 credits) - this unit covers how the theory and practice of PR changes as communication moves across paid, owned, shared and earned media. Paradigm shifts from traditional PR approaches are considered in the context of actual PR campaigns currently running.
- Multimedia Campaign Planning (30 credits) - students get the opportunity to develop and implement a number of campaign activities across a wide variety of platforms, testing their ability to integrate paid, owned, shared and earned media in a PR campaign.
- Media Measurement & Evaluation (15 credits) - this unit introduces students to the measurement techniques applied in advertising, marketing, promotion and PR sectors, including the evolution of RoE (return on engagement).
- Research Methods (15 credits) - this unit raises the students’ research skills to master’s level and includes SPSS software and other methodologies that are relevant to their particular areas of interest. This is a shared unit.
- Professional Development (30 credits) - this unit positions the MA programme in terms of the student’s career aspiration, identifying skill sets and development needs in a personal development programme. This forms the basis of a freelance/workplace project and informs the student’s choice of dissertation topic.
- Major Project/Dissertation (60 credits) - the culmination of this MA programme. Theory and practice learned in the previous units inform a final research project.

Teaching, learning and assessment -

Work experience:

Manufacturing is at the heart of engineering, as everything in our daily lives needs to be made. Manufacturing engineers therefore play a vital role in the creation of wealth and in sustaining and improving the living standards of society. The Advanced Manufacturing Technology & Systems Management course is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, and it aims to provide our students with the tools, knowledge and understanding of this broad based discipline that demands expertise in many diverse topics.

This course is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, having evolved from the very successful MSc course in Machine Tool Technology, and is regularly updated in line with subject developments and changing industrial practices. Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management has developed into a broad based multi-disciplinary field, demanding expertise in many diverse topics. The structure of the course reflects this by requiring in-depth study of a number of topics ranging from the fundamentals of manufacturing processes to the management of manufacturing systems. More specialised study takes place during the dissertation project where students undertake individual research projects of industrial relevance. The MSc course has a strong practical orientation and it aims to produce engineers with the theoretical and practical experience which will enable them to analyse and investigate problems and to engage in design, development and research involving manufacturing technology. The course also prepares graduates for the management of manufacturing systems. Whilst the course is intended primarily for those wishing to pursue an industrial career, it is equally relevant as preparation for research in advanced manufacturing technology and systems management.

Teaching and learning

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management MSc is a full time course which is studied over 12 months and there is one start date each year in September.

Throughout the course you will develop advanced technical skills in both manufacturing technology and systems management, as well as soft skill such as team working, presenting and report writing, all of which will enable you to pursue a career in both general and specialised engineering industries or develop an in-depth knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia.
During the course you will visit a number of companies, such as Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover, and have the opportunity to attend industrial guest lectures, which will not only further enhance your understanding of manufacturing but also to give you an insight into the practical application of many of the subject areas you will be studying. Moreover, many of the dissertation projects, one of which you will be working on as part of this course, originate from and are run in collaboration with industry.

Career opportunities

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management MSc has a strong focus on employability, which will give you the best chance of securing your ideal job after graduation. Most academics who teach on this course have strong links with industry, which you will benefit from, not only by having the opportunity to visit a number of companies and attend industrial talks but also to work on a dissertation project that is closely related to an industrial problem.

Each year Manchester careers fairs, workshops and presentations attract more than 600 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors illustrating how employers target Manchester graduates.

After graduating with an MSc in Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management you will be in a strong position to seek employment with companies such as: Rolls Royce, Airbus, BAE Systems, Siemens, Jaguar Land Rover, Bentley Motors, Nissan Motor Company, Bombardier Transportation, to name just a few.

Destination of Leavers Survey

MA in Film and Screen Studies offers a unique combination of critical and creative approaches to the past and the future of audiovisual media- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-film-screen-studies/

The 21st century is when everything about the moving image changes.

MA Film and Screen Studies will equip you with skills and knowledge to address current transformations of moving image media in a globalised world, from the media in your pocket to architectural screens.

It explores both the old and the new, philosophy and history, theory and practice, to help you understand the challenges of the 21st century's culture of moving images, changing artistic and political contexts as well as ever developing technologies.

Innovative approach

What distinguishes the MA in Film and Screen Studies is its innovative approach to learning and research. It takes you well beyond the borders of traditional film studies. It encourages you to think critically and imaginatively, across media forms, disciplinary boundaries as well as conceptual and creative work.

You'll have the option of two pathways:

-Moving Image Studies Pathway
-Media Arts Pathway

Students taking the Media Arts pathway will have the opportunity to submit some work in non-traditional forms.

Globally renowned academics

Teaching and supervision draw on the diverse research strengths of the globally renowned academics at one of the world's leading media and communications departments, which also has strong traditions in audiovisual practice.

You'll be taught by scholars of international standing who have expertise in the interface between film criticism and creation; new screen technologies; in early cinema and the media archaeology of modernity; in artist’s film; and in non-fiction film (eg documentary and avant-garde).

Contact the department

If you have specific questions about the degree, contact Dr Rachel Moore.

Pathways

The MA offers two pathways:

MA Film and Screen Studies: Moving Image Studies Pathway:
The moving image media today are a concentrated form of culture, ideas, socialisation, wealth and power. 21st-century globalisation, ecology, migration and activism fight over and through them. How have the media built on, distorted and abandoned their past? How are they trying to destroy, deny or build the future? This pathway explores new critical approaches that address the currency of moving image media in today's global context – their aesthetics, technology and politics. It seeks to extend the boundaries for studying moving images by considering a wider range of media and introducing students to a wider range of approaches for investigating moving images' past and present.

MA Film and Screen Studies: Media Arts Pathway:
The most intense and extreme forms of media, experimental media arts, test to breaking point our established ideas and practices. From wild abstraction and surrealist visions to activist and community arts, they ask the profoundest questions about high art and popular culture, the individual and the social, meaning and beauty. This pathway explores these emerging experimental practices of image making and criticism. Students on this pathway are encouraged not just to study but to curate and critique past, present and future media arts by building exhibitions and visual essays of their own. Short practical workshops will enable students to make the most of the skills you bring into the course.

Structure

The MA consists of:

two core modules (60 credits in total) comprising one shared and one pathway-specific core module
option modules to the value of 60 credits
a dissertation (60 credits) on a topic agreed in conjuction with your supervisor (on the Media Arts pathway up to 50% of the dissertation can be submitted in audiovisual form)

Core modules

The core modules will give you a foundation to the subject. The shared core module in Archaeology of the Moving Image introduces current debates in film and screen studies through the key notion of media history.

Pathway-specific cores develop new ways of conceptualising the cinematic today, focusing respectively on the political aspects of media forms and styles in Politics of the Audiovisual (the Moving Image Studies pathway) and on artists' use of various screen media in Experimental Media (the Media Arts pathway).

Option modules

We offer a wide range of option modules each year. Below are some examples of modules that are currently running. For a full list, please contact the Media and Communications department.

Intercollegiate options

Students on the MA in Film and Screen Studies can also take one option from the MA Film & Media programmes at other University of London colleges. Please consult the Screen Studies Group website for further details of other programmes and the Film and Screen Studies Convenor at Goldsmiths for more details on how to take part in options at other colleges. Options taken under this scheme are deemed to count for 30 credits at Goldsmiths.

Assessment

The MA is assessed primarily through coursework essays and written projects. Practical modules may require audiovisual elements to be submitted. It will also include a dissertation of approximately 12,000 words.

Skills

You will develop skills enabling you to analyse, contextualise, historicise and theorise current and future developments in screen-based media and to communicate your ideas in written and, on the Media Arts pathway, in audiovisual form.

Careers

Possible careers include film and video distribution, film exhibition, museums, film and television criticism, new media criticism, new media art, and other jobs associated with screen culture, as well as further academic study.

Surveying project

Our surveyors look at financing a project, procuring construction work, financial management and the entire construction process. We want our students to have 'real world' experiences while studying at LSBU, of field work is a major component. We create these situations by inviting guest speaks in to give up-to-date lectures, having great industry links and taking our students into situations where they would like to work. Most of our surveying and construction courses give our students the opportunity to carry out a construction project. Their work will take into account current construction technologies, energy efficiency solutions and environmental and sustainability issues. The project is very detailed and is carried out across site visits, analysing on-going construction projects and an appraisal of eco-technologies. These factors can be influenced by a construction's location so our field trips can take our students both overseas to expanding countries like Dubai or round the corner to building developments happening on our own campus.

Market report and case study analysis

Students on our MSc Surveying courses can choose to study International Real Estate & Construction as an optional. For this complex module students need to go on a study visit to an international city which has an emerging real estate and construction market.

Past students have gone abroad to take in either Dubai in the United Arab Emirates or Shanghai in the People's Republic of China. The field trip includes visits to real estate companies and construction firms, site visits and meetings with various professionals. From these briefings, students need to produce a country report that includes a detailed strategy including how they could break through in the real estate or construction market in these overseas destinations.

Professional links

Accreditation is a mark of quality assurance and professional relevance.

The MSc and the PgDip is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and is a recognised qualification for students to progress on to the Assessment of Professional Competence Graduate Training Programme.
