Course content

The MA by Creative Practice is designed for professional practitioners, recent graduates and professionals who wish to update and re-establish their own personal development. The MA is based on an individually negotiated programme of practice and research rather than a pre-arranged programme of teaching. There is a strong emphasis on supervised independent learning, personal responsibility, reflection and evaluation. It is a practical course for the practical student.

Study Details / Module Information

The programme consists of four taught modules, one of which is formally timetabled and the others taught through tutorial contact. You must complete 180 credits to graduate with the MA and each module will be assessed. Assessment methods will vary and may include written papers, practical outcomes such as exhibitions, performances and presentations, market research and other aspects of professional creative practice.

- Theoretical Research and Professional Practice (30 credits)
- Negotiated Creative Practice (30 credits)
- Autonomous Creative Practice (30 credits)
- Creative Practice Final Project (90 credits)

Assessment for Theoretical Research and Professional Practice takes the form of three 3000 word written assignments, other modules are assessed on practical outcomes, supporting contextual work, marketing strategies etc. Negotiated Creative Practice and the Creative Practice Final also include a viva voce.

All staff teaching on the MA by Creative Practice are professional practitioners in their respective disciplines and research interests reflect this. Recent publications include chapters in books such as Introduction to John Godber Plays 3 (London: Methuen, 2003); conference papers such as Interventionist Theatre: Theatre in Conflict Resolution (University of Leeds, Bretton Hall, 2004); Living Place Project and its Impact on Regeneration and The Application of CAD/CAM in the Production of Abstract Sculptural Form, presented at the 2005 International Design Conference, Yunlin University, Taiwan. Staff also have works in a wide range of public and private collections such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and exhibit at exhibitions including Collect at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Music compositions by members of staff have been performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Members of Fine Art and Design staff held a group exhibition Staff and Alumni ’08 as part of the 2008 Liverpool Biennial, as well as having solo shows in Liverpool and beyond and taking part in international sculpture workshops. Throughout the year, Visiting Professors Joanna MacGregor and John Godber contribute to events within the Deanery, including the annual Cornerstone Festival.
