Course content

The MA by Dissertation in Art and Design gives students an intellectually-stimulating and creative environment in which they can further develop their potential as an artist or designer in a self-directed programme of studio research. Created to enhance the breadth and depth of students' artistic abilities and capacities for self-direction and professionalism it allows students to develop an individual practice and engender the required excellence to successfully become a creative professional.

Graduates gain the artistic, intellectual, communication and technical skills and tools in professions that must understand their practices through social, cultural, ecological and economic implications of sites, markets, communities and regions. Graduates organise, plan and design spatial relationships and environments, public art projects and exhibitions in collaborative, productive and creative interdisciplinary ways.
