Our MA Curation Practices is ideal for those who wish to focus on the expansive field of curation within the education, arts and heritage industries, in addition to the growing areas of practice within the commercial sector. Perfectly situated in a specialist arts community, you will be surrounded by the study and production of creative artefacts.
This professional course will provide opportunities for you to develop a synthesised skill set, including collaborative creativity, communications and learning strategies, underpinned by scholarly research in curatorial discourse. Specialist tutors, visiting lecturers and in-house professional curators provide a stimulating curriculum that includes topics such as the use of new technologies and audience engagement.
You will have access to our student exhibition areas, and a range of ‘off- site’ spaces through our partnership network.
Our library offers a wide range of study resources as well as a curated collection of artists’ books and the University archive. The University is located in close proximity to unique national collections, thereby providing access to a range of curatorial subject matter to serve your individual interests.
In addition to the acquisition of a skill set relevant to contemporary curation practices, you will graduate with a developing portfolio of informed curatorial projects. You will take responsibility for your own learning and personal development by forging contacts and securing spaces for curatorial projects.
