Art Interdisciplinary Practice (Taught)

Course summary

As growth in the sector continues, the creative industries offer many thriving career opportunities. We have developed this course to equip you with a balance of research, analytical and innovative skills ready for employment within the chosen area of your art practice. The multi-disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary focus of your learning will evolve with an ethos of nurturing a sustainable society, featuring environmental, social, moral and ethical considerations. You will be presented with a range of new and evolving opportunities to develop your practice within a thriving, international, creative community. The course allows postgraduates to specialise in their chosen subject specialism, but also facilitates the cross-disciplinary “conversations” between the subjects, as postgraduate artists and designers meet regularly in their dedicated base room - for critiques, presentations and briefings. Practice is embedded within the specialist studio workshops at Regent Street, within the university’s Creative Industries Building. Students will have the opportunity to hear from invited speakers through Creative Futures and Big Ideas Wales. While you study with us, you will gain greater insight into writing for publication, posters and journals, as well as other essential business knowledge. This will be led by our professionally active staff who will transform your development with their knowledge and experience.


You will undertake four core modules, each worth 30 credits, followed by a dissertation project worth 60 credits.
