Course content

The MA Ceramics & Maker course aims to enable you to identify your true interests and concerns as an artist, designer or maker and to develop appropriate methods to explore your ideas and articulate or express them effectively in imaginative or innovative ways through a range of media.

This Master’s degree encourages you to engage with key theories and contemporary debates, fostering your understandings of the ways in which these influence the development, expression and communication of your ideas, which will impact upon the success of your future practice as an artist, maker or academic.

The MA Ceramics & Maker course is for individuals seeking to extend and develop their practice as well as deepen their knowledge and understandings of the subject, as future practitioners, researchers or academics.

The MA programme allows each student to:

  • Develop their authorship of advanced studio work
  • Be analytically rigorous
  • Develop a greater capacity for reflection

You will be encouraged to challenge norms and question conventions through fusing materiality and concept. This approach is underpinned by a critical and historical approach discourse - a critical language for both fine and applied art and design.
