About this course

This MRes in Art and Design from LJMU develops your research ideas, methods and skills.

  • Prepare for progression to PhD study

The Liverpool School of Art and Design provides the freedom of a truly cross-disciplinary environment, fully equipped with the experts and facilities that will enable you to take a project from conception to its final, intended outcome.

The programme provides a valuable foundation for progression to PhD, while helping you develop skills in research, analysis, conceptualisation and argument, which are highly prized in many areas of employment. The course also offers the full range of research training demanded by the AHRC for doctoral research grants.

Our dynamic, professional and experienced staff excel in innovative and exciting research, which, in turn, contributes to the course's contemporary teaching and learning methods. Our working relationships with Merseyside arts organisations and employers also frequently benefit academic, personal and career development.

This programme allows the exploration and critical appraisal of individually negotiated Art and Design research projects. You will explore subject-specific research practices, with an ultimate view to interpreting these concepts, methodologies and debates in your own final art and design project.

Applying a range of historical, contemporary and critical processes, you will produce a rich and original piece of work using a specialist, descriptive and interpretative vocabulary.
