Course summary

This distinctive MA course offers you the opportunity to study a range of approaches to ceramics at postgraduate level.

You’ll develop skills and knowledge through an exciting combination of material investigation and research. This will allow you to contextualise your practice in relation to current debates in art, craft and design and to develop an individual production strategy.

Approaches of past students range from sculpture and installation through to studio ceramics and design for products.

Overview

You’ll be part of a lively ceramics community based around comprehensive workshop provision and studio spaces shared with multidisciplinary BA students specialising in Ceramics. As postgraduate students, you’ll have the opportunity to extend and hone your making skills in conjunction with developing your understanding of how a Ceramics specialisation might relate to production in art, craft or design contexts.

Through study of historical and contemporary theory and practice, you’ll deepen your knowledge of the field and develop your abilities in critical thinking and writing. Drawing on recent developments in artistic research, you’ll also explore methods for generating writing from practice. We’ll help you to become theoretically and critically aware, so you can identify and communicate effectively with the audience/market for your practice, and/or progress to research at MPhil or PhD level.

The course moves from taught modules through to a self-directed Master's project. The four modules taken in the first two trimesters lead to the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip), while the successful completion of the double module in the third trimester leads to the award of MA Design (Ceramics).

How will I be assessed?

At the end of each trimester, modules are assessed by internal staff and moderated by an external examiner. Practice modules are assessed through a studio exhibition of work with a supporting statement. Theory modules are assessed through written assignment and verbal presentation. The final Master's project is assessed through exhibition and your Evaluative Report. There are no written examinations.

This course also have the exit awards with following course duration: PG Dip full-time: two trimesters (one academic year); PG Dip part-time: four trimesters; PG Cert full-time: one trimester; PG Cert part-time: two trimesters.
