Design: Ceramics MA Bath Spa University




Course info


In this course, you’ll be part of a lively ceramics community based around comprehensive workshop provision and studio spaces shared with multidisciplinary BA students specialising in Ceramics. As postgraduate students, you’ll have the opportunity to extend and hone your making skills in conjunction with developing your understanding of how a Ceramics specialisation might relate to production in art, craft or design contexts.

Through study of historical and contemporary theory and practice, you’ll deepen your knowledge of the field and develop your abilities in critical thinking and writing. Drawing on recent developments in artistic research, you’ll also explore methods for generating writing from practice. We’ll help you to become theoretically and critically aware, so you can identify and communicate effectively with the audience/market for your practice, and/or progress to research at MPhil or PhD level.

The course moves from taught modules through to a self-directed Master's project. The four modules taken in the first two trimesters lead to the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip), while the successful completion of the double module in the third trimester leads to the award of MA Design (Ceramics).

At the end of each trimester, modules are assessed by internal staff and moderated by an external examiner. Practice modules are assessed through a studio exhibition of work with a supporting statement. Theory modules are assessed through written assignment and verbal presentation. Typical career destinations include: Exhibiting; Ceramic design; Museum work; Arts administration; Public art; Research; Teaching. This course also have the exit awards with following course duration: PG Dip full-time: two trimesters (one academic year); PG Dip part-time: four trimesters; PG Cert full-time: one trimester; PG Cert part-time: two trimesters.
