Course content

The MA Professional Practice (Arts) is a highly flexible postgraduate qualification designed for established professionals working in the cultural and creative industries. It has been developed especially to allow you to continue working and integrate your professional expertise with academic learning. In addition, you can make a claim for academic credits for your previous professional achievements through a formal Review of Learning, the first part of the course. This can then form the basis of your major project within your professional field.

Students on the course are actively encouraged to engage in networking within their field, as well as in complementary professions; using social media tools, face to face events and conferences.
