Course Description

MASTER OF ARTS IN CREATIVE PRACTICE



The MA in Creative Practice offer artists, designers and filmmakers a creative and critically informed environment in which to develop and consolidate their practice.

The course will support imaginative, experimental and interdisciplinary enquiry through a range of media and approaches.

Students will choose one of four strands in which to base their study

  • Contemporary art studio practice
  • Digital cultures
  • Film and lens based media
  • Socially engaged practice

The course is structured so as to balance general and specific demands of various practices.

Students will be encouraged to work collaboratively as well as be independent, self-directed critical thinkers.

The emphasis of the course is on the student completing a large practice-based project.

This culminates with the production of a final exhibition, film screening or project presentation with a thesis demonstrating appropriate critical contextualization of the practice based work.
