Course summary

Drawing and the visual expression of narrative – or storytelling – lie at the heart of this programme. We believe that the use of hybrid approaches and high-level crafting should inform the handmade mark, the filmic image and the created artefact and you will often find yourself working with mixed media. Our MA covers a broad spectrum of media, including physical paper or other material-based leaves within books, magazines, newspapers and posters, as well as computer, video or projection screens and stereoscopic viewing systems. You will explore and redefine the application of such media as a means of conveying and explaining information, entertainment and aesthetics within a broad range of contexts such as the medical, botanical, scientific, technical, social, cultural and ethical. Through practical exploration and reflection of digital and traditionally physical forms you will develop an appropriate synergy between practice and theory, establishing your specialist signature of work. Your final project will be tailored to your own area of professional practice and your personal creative passion, culminating with an exhibition of your work in the end-of-year MA Degree Show.
