The MA Art and Design programme offers pathways in the following specialist areas:
- Design Futures
- Fashion Design Futures
The MA Art and Design programme will cater to students who wish to develop their academic and research knowledge from within the practical disciplines and wider academic fields of Fine Art and Design.
Typically this might include teachers, aspiring artists or designers, aspiring academics, or recent graduates in Fine Art or Design who wish to further their professional practice. It will also cater for those students with first degrees outside Art & Design who wish to convert their career path by following a more theoretical route in Art and Design.
The MA Art and Design is designed as a gateway to research or advanced experimental practice. Students taking the MA Art and Design will align with specific research and experimental practice pathways, led by academic staff with established practice careers and/or advanced scholarship and research.
The MA Art and Design curriculum is designed so that students:
- Explore and develop concepts, skills or philosophies.
- Develop creative skills.
- Have a trajectory towards progression to MPhil/PhD.
