This modular MA is designed to offer a framework for advanced study and to develop core skills in a number of areas, including:
* research methodologies
* the professional and cultural contextualisation of work
* practical project experimentation and realisation
* critical and reflective evaluation.
All skills are developed as the course progresses, with the aim of preparing students for a major MA individual or group research project.
Modules are designed to encourage interdisciplinary working. The Context and Research module, for example, is delivered to the entire postgraduate community, thus giving students the opportunity to exchange ideas and analysis. This form of dialogue is crucial for the development of new thinking and new directions in art and design.
