Course content

This is a unique and innovative programme that explores creative practice, meaning-making and learning in and out of school. You will learn about the meanings of literacy and creativity in the context of an increasingly socially diverse, digitally mediated and multimodal culture. We will be examining learning in different locations, both in and out of school. We will think about what counts as text and literacy, the nature of authorship, and the kinds of cultural practices that take place in different places and spaces.

The MA Creativity, Arts, Literacies and Learning is aimed at:

primary and secondary teachers with interests in literacy, English studies, media, drama and creative arts
arts and creative practitioners with an interest in learning and education
recently qualified teachers with an M-level PGCE, who subject to approval may be able to carry over 60 M-level credits

The course will be taught by a team who have recognised expertise in teaching and research into creative practice and creative pedagogies, literacies and media production. They have strong links with national and local arts organisations, educational facilities and schools and will draw on these for outside speakers and workshop leaders.

Innovative Features

As well as developing academic and intellectual skills, the programme will develop practical skills including the promotion of creative approaches to pedagogy. The course will offer opportunities for you to develop your own creative capacities both as individuals and through collaboration, producing texts appropriate to different contexts of practice and using various media.

Opportunities for practice-based placements in schools and/or community-based projects will be available.

Approaches to assessment will encourage the submission of practice-based portfolios alongside more traditional, academic essay-based approaches.

As well as appealing to a wider constituency, the programme is designed as a subject-based route of progression for former PGCE students in English studies and the arts holding up to 60 M-level credits.
