About the course

The MRes in Visual Cultures is ideal if you have already completed an advanced course of study in art history and theory but would like to further develop your thought and research projects before studying at MPhil/PhD level.

This programme is assessed primarily by a dissertation on a topic of your choice, with additional assessed taught modules in research methods.

It qualifies you to carry out higher research, but is also a degree in its own right and can be tailored to suit your requirements.

Assessment is by thesis and viva voce.

Student Profile(s)

Claire Staunton

165.gif Three years ago, after a BA in French, with an obsession with experimental music and contemporary art, I found myself in an arts consultancy job that I didn’t want. I was becoming more active in producing and programming sonic and public art events at Whitechapel Gallery and with collectives in the street but I lacked the theoretical basis and knowledge needed for a more developmental and involved role. I always felt that going back to university was something that interested me especially considering my first degree was not something I was totally committed to and I missed the academic environment when at work.

I needed a solid knowledge base in contemporary art in order to engage with the works and artists. I spoke to a friend about Goldsmiths. Her glowing recommendation of the Visual Cultures department and her passion for her areas of interest convinced meA. Goldsmiths became more than just a pathway to a qualification and was an opportunity to reach my ambition to be a curator.
