Our MA Creative Arts Education course is designed for those who wish to return to the study of education, with a view to revisit topics covered previously or to address new issues that have emerged as a result of changes in the creative arts education landscape.
To apply for this course you must be working in a teaching or supporting learning content for a minimum of one day a week across each year.
This course is delivered in two parts, between September and April on Saturdays (10:00am - 5:00pm) at our Epsom campus. Indicative attendance requirements are as follows:
-Part 1: Critical issues - requires attendance every other week -Part 1: Investigating pedagogy - requires attendance at four all-day sessions and some tutorials throughout the unit -Part 2: Researching pedagogy - requires attendance at all day sessions and tutorials every other week for the first 15 weeks, and then intermittently for tutorials if required -Part 2: Reflective account of practice - requires attendance on three days across the unit.
As a UCA student, you'll have access to excellent facilities at each of our campuses, including library and student development services for support with dyslexia, a disability or with learning in general.
Our course provides you with the opportunity to focus on developing teaching practice, at the same time as professional art and design practice. This dual professionalism is highly valued in FE and HE contexts.
And developing a small-scale research project provides you with experience of producing, writing and disseminating research. Past participants have found this valuable when applying for practice-based research funding or writing PhD proposals.
A successful career in teaching or supporting learning in FE and HE contexts requires three key ingredients. These include a subject discipline qualification (preferably at Masters level), significant professional art and design or professional support practice, and a teaching qualification.
Postgraduate Certificate in Creative Arts Education from UCA or Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching or Higher Education Academic practice, or equivalent from another institution or Diploma to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) orFellowship of the Higher Education Academy and Five years' (full-time equivalent) teaching/support for learning practice.
