MA Live Event Design University of Bolton



Course info


The MA Live Event Design aims to offer you the opportunity to cultivate your own creativity and design approach, whilst developing your knowledge, understanding and critical insight into the principles and practices underpinning design, artistry and innovation within live events and wider creative industries.

Course Details

The MA Live Event Design programme will be delivered using a blended learning approach, combining face-to-face sessions with online and practical work as appropriate. Face-to-face delivery will take place at Backstage Academy on Production Park.

The programme seeks to provide students with a challenging, supportive and inclusive environment where students learn through praxis; combining critical thinking, practical experimentation and reflection. Depending on their eventual career direction, students may opt to explore a range of design areas or focus on a particular area of specialism (for instance, lighting, set/stage or video content design).

A range of learning and teaching methods will be employed, including (face-to-face or online) lectures, seminars, tutorials, discussion groups, guest speakers and masterclasses. A significant amount of personal study time is expected to be undertaken by the student comprising, for example, background reading, online activities, assessment work and preparation for sessions.

The course includes three subject specialist modules and two modules that you will share with students on other postgraduate courses. During the course, students are encouraged to use their continuing professional practice as part of their research process and build on our close relationships with the live events industry; engaging in live projects and developing plans for new creative enterprises coupled with a higher level of academic study and learning.
