School of Art, Design and Printing launches new suite of Masters Programmes
11th July 2011
Specifically designed for honours graduates in fine art, multimedia, design, architecture and humanities, this Masters programme has been developed by the School of Art, Design and Printing in collaboration with the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (GradCAM) which delivers a structured Doctoral programme. The programme is centered around the development and delivery of a major project which can be either practice or theory based. Key features of this approach are the integrated delivery of Masters and Doctoral research methods as well as a special series of lectures providing a survey of key ideas in the study of contemporary cultural practice. The programme leads to the award of one of the following qualifications:
- MA Visual and Critical Studies
- MA Design Practice
- MA Critical Art Practice
The programme combines the self-directed ethos of graduate academic research with the structured environment of a taught programme. Drawing on the diverse research and scholarly activity by staff in the School and the activities of GradCAM it aims to nurture and support an interdisciplinary approach to research and development within art, design and critical theory. This dynamic environment seeks to provide a framework for critical interdisciplinary dialogue and enquiry that facilitates, promotes and leads the interaction between cultural practice, educational practice and the everyday world of work and innovation beyond the academy.
