In your first semester you will be set a series of briefs designed
to stimulate your creativity and help you develop the ingenuity
and resilience that professional creative practice requires. You
will begin to outline a self-directed project proposal, which will
ultimately develop into your Independent Major Project.
You will continue to develop your own creative practice, whilst
addressing how artists and designers need to be engaged in
forging the future of their respective fields. You will be given a
chance to explore your ideas with students on other MA courses,
and will also have the opportunity of a work placement.
During this semester, all your attentions turn to the research,
development and production of your Independent Major Project.
The year ends with an exhibition showcase of your projects,
celebrating the end of an intensive period of creative, conceptual,
critical and professional development.
