MA Creative Education

UK

What will I learn?

Overview

Our Masters programmes offer you an intensive personal programme of creative and stimulating study within a supportive critical and practical framework that enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of your chosen practice.

We encourage diversity in thinking and making, acknowledging the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross-fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of new and vital concepts. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programmes, helping you to make dynamic and challenging work that resonates and reflects your key concerns in light of current national and international dialogues.

Our MA in Creative Education is oriented towards experimental developments in arts and pedagogy. It explores the transformational power of creative learning across different educational models and contexts. In examining the mutable relationship between art and learning, the role of creativity and making in education is fully explored in how the arts are taught.

The MA is appropriate for a wide range of subject specialists: teachers at all levels from primary to further and higher education, managers and support workers in formal education; current and aspiring lecturers, as well as creative and community practitioners. The program accepts learning as a process that takes place throughout our entire lives, where it extends beyond formal places of learning into communities, libraries, museums, nature, workplaces, social & health care and the third age.

Studying education at an art college means that you will use the arts as a lens through which to re-imagine education, whilst emphasising the wide range of ways in which people understand and interact with the world: cognitively as well as emotionally, aesthetically and somatically.

The MA will provide you with the critical skills, resources and creative space to question existing educational arrangements, to seek out alternative approaches, apply pedagogies and explore your own practice as an artist, designer and educator.

As a student on the MA Creative Education course you will gain a thorough understanding of research methodologies, which supports the development of a rigorous inquiry that answers questions relevant to your professional or artistic practice. It draws upon the collaboration with a wider network of cultural organisations in Plymouth and beyond, to provide you with the opportunity to develop new perspectives on your own practice, educational research and the transformative potential of creativity.

Our programmes offer professional skills development to support our students as they progress within industry, self-employment (in the Creative Industries sector) and further Level 7 and 8 studies.

Alumni of our Graduate School pursue careers in the fields of fine art, craft and design, as practising artists, teachers, curators, and as gallery,theatre and technical professionals. Others go on to prepare for doctoral study, and set up viable projects as socially engaged and community-based practitioners.

The second module offers an opportunity to test out the practices being investigated by individual students within an appropriate, live setting.
