Interdisciplinary Creative Practices

University of Edinburgh · Edinburgh College of Art

Entry requirements

We normally expect students to enter with at least a 2:1 honours degree or its equivalent if outside the UK. The subject discipline is not as important as aptitude for critical thinking and commitment to interdisciplinary study. In special cases equivalent experience may be considered as an alternative for part or all of the requirement. Prospective students might have had experience as creative practitioners beginning to engage interdisciplinary working methods or have completed study in a specific subject and now seek to apply that knowledge through creative practice.

Course content

The MSc by Research in Interdisciplinary Creative Practice is a unique programme of study that responds to emerging practices that work across diverse disciplines in the creative arts, humanities and physical and social sciences.

The programme is predicated on the understanding that the convergent nature of Information and Communication Technologies has facilitated the adoption of methods from across disciplines but recognises that practitioners often require a deeper appreciation and experience of such methods to assure their ability to undertake such practice.
