  • Objectives
    This cutting edge Masters programme aims to equip students, who want to make a difference, with a theoretical and practical understanding of how the arts can contribute to the processes of reconciliation, the peaceful transformation of conflict in a range of settings, and enhanced understanding of global interdependence. The MA is a response to the global need for innovative, creative approaches to relationship building at all levels of society.
  • Academic Title
    MA Creative Conflict Transformation through the Arts
  • Course description
    Module Information:

    There will be 4 taught modules with a major dissertation/project which is equivalent to two modules.  

    In Semester A there is a module which examines the roots, nature of conflict and traditional approaches to resolution, and another module, ‘Creative Tools for Transformation’,  which examines in theory and practice arts approaches to conflict in a range of settings.  

    In Semester B research methods are explored, with particular reference to case studies.  The other module  asks students to undertake an arts intervention, with tutor supervision, in a community setting of their own choice. 

    The dissertation may be a traditional written study or an in-depth practical project either in the UK or overseas.

    Career Opportunities:

    The MA will enhance career effectiveness in a range of professions, e.g. within education - the teaching of  Global Citizenship,  applying creative approaches to bullying, racism and diversity,   the school’s relationship to its community, within community, youth and social work -  creative approaches to mediation and conflict,  to workers in Development - encouraging confidence, self esteem and building creative webs of relationship across boundaries and barriers etc.  For artists – an exploration of how aesthetic imagination can provide the key to constructive change.

    The course is closely linked to the ARROW programme (Art; a resource for Reconciliation Over the World) which works with partners in the West Bank, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, South Africa and elsewhere, and which has been described by Archbishop Desmond Tutu as ‘exciting, especially as it is so apt for the times.’
