Course summary

Course Overview

The Arts MRes course offers you the opportunity to undertake a closely-supervised piece of original research within the broad spectrum of visual and material culture, including historical or theoretical studies in art, design, architecture, fashion, film, television, visual digital media or performance.

You will undertake a specialist research project, based upon your own focused proposal, which may be subject-specific or span arts disciplines.

The centrepiece of the Arts MRes is an extended written Dissertation. This is supported by a framework of three modules, which provide expert knowledge and understanding of appropriate research methods to employ in your project, the wider critical contexts relating to your subject, and how to develop and communicate your research. The programme will enable you to position your research within a wider scholarly field, and furnish you with professional skills such as communication, self-management and planning, preparing you for doctoral study or further career advancement.

Your Future

The Arts MRes is well established as a bridge between undergraduate or postgraduate study and focussed Doctoral research. It can also stand alone as an important step in career development.

Through carrying out a focused project of independent research, MRes Arts students develop skills ideally suited to careers in the contextualisation, communication or promotion of visual and material culture. Whether developing careers in academia, education, curating, cultural management, community engagement, traditional and digital media publishing, or creative practice, MRes graduates possess a directly relevant qualification and skill set to push their ambitions forward.
