Overview of the Programme
Develop your artistic skills and understanding of research driven practice through our MA Art Practice course.
As your creativity matures, this course will allow you to advance your skills through the practice of contemporary and traditional methods of production, reflective approaches to studio activity and academic enquiry.
The course provides a foundation for research activity, from which some students go on to take PhD studies.
Much of the learning is “situation based” – meaning your experience is not dictated by materials, but the context in which your work is developing, both in terms of how the research informs your practice and how the work you do informs the need for future development. You will also have the opportunity to exhibit work and to take part in live commissions as opportunity allows.
Key Course Features
You will work with experienced artists and designers.
Opportunity to learn new skills in painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, animation, illustration, graphics, graphic novels, ceramics and jewellery metalwork.
Take part in Creative Futures, an event to focus upon career options for those with creative skills with visiting speakers from a wide range of art and design professions.
Take the opportunity to collaborate or form a collective to enhance your career potential
Explore your potential as a researcher as you learn about the methods and protocols of supervised study.
Assessment and Teaching
Assessment will be conducted throughout the course and will require evidence of coursework (typically portfolio) including evaluations of the practical work for each module.
Master’s degree students are creative and innovative so find opportunities for career development in many fields of activity. Recent graduates have commenced careers as self employed artist/designers, lecturers, illustrators, special needs facilitators, theatrical prop makers, game designers.
Students need to have an initial degree in a relevant subject, classified as First Class or 2:1, or evidence of recent activity in the subject equivalent to these classifications as determined by interview. All applicants are expected to hold a good and relevant initial degree, or provide a port folio of their own work, demonstrating equivalence to an initial degree.
