MA Culture, Criticism and Curation works with two distinctive approaches: it examines culture as a broad field while treating intellectual and practical work as a form of joined-up enquiry.

The course aims to make research accessible to new and larger audiences, removing it from a solely academic environment.

Taking advantage of its location in an art school, the course integrates theoretical issues and practical skills.

It interrogates history and considers how new knowledge is presented in the public realm.

MA Culture, Criticism and Curation will teach you how to become both an innovative practitioner and a strong researcher, with the skills to communicate to specialist and general audiences alike.

Project work is a combination of theory and research. Learning through doing is fundamental to the course.

MA Culture, Criticism and Curation promotes a community of practice, which is central to student development.

The course is designed as a series of intensive workshops, combining seminars, discussions, site visits and practical projects.

These are often interdisciplinary and the course encourages a holistic approach to critical, practical, peer-to-peer, group and independent work.
