Artist Teachers and Contemporary Practices

This Masters gives artists, practitioners, teachers and educators, in informal and formal learning environments, the opportunity to extend, enrich and consolidate the overlapping practices and theories of contemporary art and learning and teaching through individual and collaborative research. The MAAT can be a pathway before or after the completion of a UK QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) programme, such as the PGCE (Secondary): Art & Design.

Entry requirements

You should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least second class standard in an appropriate arts-based area with additional experience in learning contexts and a commitment to arts education.

Course modules

Core modules: Revisiting Practice, Critical Pedagogy and Contested Spaces, Independent Studies. You also choose one other option module. To enable greater flexibility and a more equitable experience for full-time and part-time students, the MAAT programme has a modular structure, with the majority of teaching sessions usually conducted in the evenings. This also enables part time and full-time students to attend the same evening teaching sessions and therefore form a collaborative and supportive learning environment.

Assessment methods

The MA Artist Teacher and Contemporary Practices utilises a number of complementary assessment strategies. These have been devised to appropriately assess the range of learning outcomes and are underpinned by the ethos of the programme these include, exhibition/presentation/performance, essay, viva voce.

Sponsorship information

Funding may be available from schools' CPD budgets.
