Course summary

This programme gives artists, practitioners, and teachers the opportunity to enrich and consolidate theories of contemporary art and learning. Engage with practice and theory, develop innovative research approaches, and critically debate the changing nature of contemporary art.

Why study MA Arts and Learning (MAAL) at Goldsmiths?

  • You’ll be taught by staff who are nationally and internationally renowned and published artist researcher teachers.

  • You’ll draw on the international scope of contemporary art practices in London. This degree has partnerships with international galleries including Tate Modern, the Whitechapel Gallery and the Showroom Gallery.

  • You’ll be part of a diverse student community, and will have the opportunity to develop and maintain collaborative peer networks and support.
