The School of Media, Art and Design’s MA by Research offers you the chance to continue your studies at postgraduate level in one of the School’s research specialisms.
As a postgraduate MA student enrolled on this programme you will join a department with over thirty years of experience delivering excellent teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange, and awardwinning professional practice.
You will join a vibrant community of researchers and practitioners and play a role in contributing to the culture of research and practicebased research that exists within the department.
This is not a taught MA, and therefore there are no modules offered. Instead, the individual defines their own set of research questions in conversation with their supervisory team. The range of subjects available for students to research is necessarily constrained by the range of specialisms offered by the supervisors within the School. Areas of specialism include: Animation, Applied Art, Cultural Studies, Digital Media, Film, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Journalism, Media and Communications, Photography, Radio, Television, and Web Design.
The MA by Research in Media, Art and Design will provide you with the opportunity to undertake a supervised programme of independent study and practice in a structured and supportive environment. You will work closely with your supervisors to develop your ideas, refine your research questions, and complete your research project.
