Course content

The MRes in Arts and Media is an exciting opportunity to experience research within the disciplines of art and design, performing arts and media. This can be accomplished either through practice-based or more traditional text-based approaches.

The programme offers you a unique opportunity to critically evaluate the tools of research through taught modules, and then to apply these in an extensive research project in an area of arts and media in which you are passionate.

Our programme is situated in the Faculty of Arts and Media, where there is a vibrant community of staff and students pursuing arts and media disciplines using a variety of methodologies with a plethora of outputs. The programme is geared towards facilitating your research interests, and you will be matched with staff who share these and will be able to guide you in your explorations.

The campuses where the programme is taught have the facilities which you would expect in order to be successful in arts and media research: specialist studio spaces (for making, performance and production) together with specialist equipment, technology and software.
