Studying for an MA Art by Research is designed to allow independent research in an area of your choice, supervised and supported by a team of academics. You will have access to a range of training opportunities provided by the University with the aim of developing your research skills.
Example research areas include:
- Art and Design histories
- Contemporary curatorial practice
- Fine Art research through practice
- Contemporary Art Practice
- Art and text
- Live Art
You can join an international research community within the College of Arts, where you will have the opportunity to benefit from an interdisciplinary ethos and expertise in art, contemporary curatorial practice, conservation, cultural heritage, sustainability and design across the Schools of History & Heritage, Fine & Performing Arts, Film & Media and Architecture & Design.
The MA by Research is available as either written thesis or practice-based, where documentation of creative practice undertaken during the research period replaces part of the thesis component. Students are expected to undertake self-led and self-managed research with the support of a supervisor.
