Course content

This MA programme encourages sustained engagement with materials within a robust creative community. Students are supported to develop individual specialist approaches including curatorial, socially engaged, gallery practice and enhance existing practical and critical thinking skills through a material-led enquiry. The course offers opportunities to develop live projects as well as studio-based research. A diverse range of academic tutors and visiting professionals will enrich the experience of the course. The programme structure allows you to focus on your own specialism by undertaking a range of core and specialist projects interwoven with a critical studies programme. These skills will cultivate your attitude towards becoming a more rounded versatile creative professional practitioner.

The privilege given to material-led enquiry in our studio-based curriculum is informed by an integrated critical studies programme that provides the conceptual and philosophical frameworks that enable students to produce a body of work and disseminate it appropriately. This dimension of the course invites you to consider the relevance of questions of aesthetics, anthropology, critical and cultural theory, feminist studies and postcolonialism for your practice.
