Months of entry
This part-time innovative Arts MRes course offers you the opportunity to undertake a closely-supervised piece of original research within the broad spectrum of visual and material culture, including Fine Art practice, historical or theoretical studies in art, design, architecture, fashion, film, television, visual digital media or performance.
You will undertake a specialist research project, based upon your own focused proposal, which may be subject-specific or span arts disciplines.
The centrepiece of the Arts MRes is an extended written Dissertation (or body of practical work supported by an extended written thesis). This is supported by a framework of three modules, which provide expert knowledge and understanding of appropriate research methods to employ in your project, the wider critical contexts relating to your subject, and how to develop and communicate your research. The programme will enable you to position your research within a wider scholarly field, and furnish you with professional skills such as communication, self-management and planning, preparing you for doctoral study or further career advancement.
