Our MA Creative Practice has been devised for creative practitioners, graduates and professionals who wish to examine, strengthen and deepen their practice. It addresses the needs of graduates who want to continue to develop their practice and identities in the context of the creative and cultural industries.
This unique course will encourage you to pursue a practice-based research project for the duration of the course, offering an individualised learning experience. It is ideal if you have experience as a creative professional but have a need to devote additional time and energy to your work in a specialist arts environment. The course is intellectually demanding, but not theory heavy: learning will be dynamic and interactive, and you will be encouraged to share and collaborate with your peers.
You will have opportunities to use workshops that are pertinent to your disciplines and our extensive library resources.
Expert staff will be on hand to give you individual advice and insight. You will be encouraged to forge links within industry or practice communities, leading to the development of original work which has relevance to a specific market or audience. Students will maintain contact with other creative practitioners and develop freelance or other career paths in the context of a portfolio career. This course will prepare those who wish to develop ideas for application to a practice-based PhD.
