Course summary

OVERVIEW

MA Arts, Health and Social Change brings those working in or interested in developing their skills in arts, health and social change together to learn from leaders in the field in the context of research and practice.

You will hold a critical belief that culture and the arts have a significant part to play in health and social change and a conviction that a collective approach offers new ways of reimagining public health.

This course stems from the research-informed direction of Arts for Health at Manchester Metropolitan University, a leading research, advocacy and education centre, re-imagining and undertaking, multidisciplinary research into the fundamental questions about arts, health and social change. This ties explicitly to the Manchester Institute for Arts, Heath & Social Change. The programme benefits from the rich networks and strategic working relationships within Manchester, the UK and internationally.

We invite participants from a range of arts and health disciplines and/or professional backgrounds which might include traditional art school roots and psychology and healthcare but may also embrace subjects from visual anthropology to the digital and literary arts. People with professional experience wanting to further develop their practice and theoretical understanding of the field will form a key cohort in this Masters.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The programme will enable individuals to gain the knowledge and practical experience to propel their careers in this fast developing field. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
