MA Art & Design with pathways

The MA in Art and Design programme as a whole is designed for students who wish to develop their academic and research knowledge from within the practical disciplines and wider academic fields of Art and Design. In the MA you will submit a written dissertation, and, if wished, a practical piece of work. You choose the balance between these theoretical and practical interests. Typically students might include teachers, aspiring artists, aspiring academics, or recent graduates in Art and/or Design who wish to further their professional practice.

The MA encourages you to develop your practice in a critical yet supportive environment. Our aim is to enable you to sustain your practice and to succeed at the highest level. In order to help to work towards this, you will be allocated a personal tutor and subject-specialist member of academic staff. However you will also have access to and guidance from other specialists in each area.

We offer our MA in a number of specialist pathways.

Specialist Pathways:

Art and Science
Death and Visual Culture
Ecologies
Philosophy

Career Potential

The programme is mainly intended for art and design graduates who want to explore intellectual and creative territories that are current and challenging. MA graduates are well placed to pursue their career as either practicing artists, designers or communicators in a variety of professional or creative industries contexts, or to develop their careers in education and academia.
