What will I learn?

The course will culminate in a module entitled MA Major Project, and this will include the production of a body of work for public display and a supporting text based component.

Throughout the course, you will engage in dialogue with your peers irrespective of your own preferred discipline.

You will be supported by academic staff whose research profile directly influences their teaching.
