Arts MA

Course Description

The Arts MA at DMU provides you with an opportunity to design and pursue your own personal arts study programme at master’s level, while being supported and supervised by leading national and international scholars. The programme allows you to study in a way that is most appropriate to your own individual circumstances, and has been designed to suit your preferred learning style. You can take up to 90 credits from our taught postgraduate provision, while the rest of the programme will be completed through negotiated learning agreements. There are a wide range of subject areas to choose from, and you can create a programme of study which is interdisciplinary and unique to your specialist interests or skills. The programme also allows you to be supervised by leading national and international scholars, researchers and practitioners drawn from the unique breadth of specialist areas available in the Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities.

You are able to exercise choice and control over the aims of your course, the content and context of your studies, and the criteria against which your achievement is assessed. You can take up to 90 credits from our taught modules (subject to approval), and you design your programme of study between and across the subject areas that we offer.

The wide range of specialisms that we offer on the Arts MA includes:

• Arts and Festival Management
• Education and the Arts
• Dance
• Drama
• Performance
• Photography
• Video
