  • Objectives
    This course aims to develop the expertise and creativity of practitioners in their particular field by providing a culture of critical interrogation of practice and the opportunity to learn the skills and ideas of another discipline which can feed and stimulate your own work. As part of this process students will be encouraged to collaborate with each other in a spirit of intellectual and creative enquiry. * As a film maker you might want to be informed by an artist’s approach to the visual and collaborate on an installation, or work with a writer on a script for an animation or a feature film or an interactive project. * As an artist you might want to explore the way the internet communicates in relation to your own artistic practice and distribution, or explore our relationship to the body through sculpture and film. * As a writer you might work with an artist on an installation or museum project.
  • Entry requirements

  • Course description
    The MA in Creative Arts is an innovative inter-disciplinary MA in the fields of film, art, writing and new media which foregrounds the equal relationship between theory and practice, provides an opportunity for practitioners to collaborate across a number of creative fields and to develop new skills applicable to their particular discipline.

    In the School of Creative Arts and Humanities there is a strong commitment to offering courses that combine theory and practice. This approach enables students and practitioners to consider the relationship between maker and reader and between practitioner and theorist and to push at the boundaries between form and content.

    This MA in Creative Arts will encourage and support analysis of practice and the shifting boundaries between existing and emerging forms of creativity which already exhibit multi or interdisciplinary practices.

    Who is it for?

    It is envisaged that students will already be engaged in practice in their particular field and that the College will provide a course and an environment outside of the usual pressures of the marketplace, the deadline and the budget. Theoretical analysis will be viewed as an integral part of practical tasks. Students will have an opportunity to reflect on the ideas and ideals which lie behind their work and collaborate with other students, visiting practitioners/experts and the tutors on site to critically engage with, and possibly transform, their own practices enabling them to:

        * reflect on their own creative processes
        * document these processes, and
        * make these materials, and critical reflections available to a wider audience.

    This exciting and challenging interdisciplinary MA will broaden awareness of cross artform concerns, question the boundaries of contemporary creative practice, encourage shifts in perception and produce work with a critical edge which is relevant to contemporary life. There is also the opportunity to explore other means of distribution and exhibition.
