University for the Creative Arts

Crafts

The course concentrates on the written histories and critical analyses of craft organisations, artists, theories and craft exhibitions, as well as discussions from management, educational and theoretical perspectives. The key outcomes of the course are a substantial essay, or an essay plus practice outcome in the case of makers. The use of museum and private collections (including artist collections) as a focus for study will be a strong feature on our course. This course is studio-based for practice-based students and library/museum-based for students engaged solely on written outcomes and study. The intensive written component of the course is directed by museum professional staff of the Crafts Study Centre. You will undertake a combination of lectures, tutorials and visits but, primarily, our course focuses on independent, self-directed study.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree (normally 2.1 or above) or equivalent qualification in a chosen subject or a related discipline, and/or relevant work experience, demonstrating the ability to study at postgraduate level. No formal portfolio is required for this course. We will require you to attend an applicant day which will include an interview. This will also give you the opportunity to visit us, meet the course team and see the facilities. If you wish to bring work for discussion at your interview, you are welcome to do so.

Course modules

Stage 1: Theory and analysis; curatorial practice. Stage 2: Research design; exhibition design. Stage 3: Final research dissertation.

Assessment methods
