MA in the Contemporary (Paris)


Course Description

The MA in the Contemporary is an interdisciplinary programme in the field of contemporary culture. This programme is a unique collaboration between the University of Kent and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London which allows students to choose from a range of modules, each focusing on different aspects of contemporary culture.

Jointly taught by academics and practitioners in the School of English and the School of Arts at the University of Kent and the ICA, the programme allows students to enrich their academic knowledge with a practical study placement at the ICA. Students will also be invited to attend an induction at the ICA at the start of their studies to introduce them to the facilities and will be encouraged to make use of the ICA’s programme of seminars and events.

Following a similar structure to the MA in the Contemporary, this programme allows you to spend your first term at our Canterbury campus, whilst participating in the collaborative module taught partly at the ICA in London, before relocating to our Paris Centre in the heart of historic Montparnasse for the spring term. Students will be able to choose from a wide variety of modules in the areas of Contemporary Literature, Creative Writing, Film, Drama and History and Philosophy of Art. Whilst at the Paris Centre students are offered a range of modules inspired by Paris and its unique cultural history. The ICA will coordinate a study visit to Paris which, in partnership with key galleries and artists, will seek contextualise contemporary culture in an international setting.

The MA in the Contemporary will provide students with a deep understanding of the relationship between disciplines in the arts and an appreciation of the way in which interdisciplinary thinking makes it possible to grasp and respond to key issues in contemporary culture. This pioneering educational opportunity will equip students with the skills, knowledge and professional experience to progress into areas such as artistic practice, related higher postgraduate research, arts management and policy and a variety of other careers within the arts.
