About

The only Arts Education MA in the UK based in a School of Art, we provide a unique platform for the art educator. Arts and Education Practices MA is provided by Birmingham City University.

Overview

What's covered in the course?

Our students come from diverse phases and sectors in the field of art and design education and the expanded fields of gallery, community and self organised educational practices. Through the course individual perspectives and experiences meet with those of your peers providing you with the stimulation and challenges that different perceptions can bring. We seek to evolve a dialogue through direct experience and engagement with the arts and their value as taught subjects, both within the institution and outside of it. Arts and Education Practices MA is provided by Birmingham City University.

Our taught modules strengthen your subject knowledge and connect you with contemporary creative and educational practice.

The course core modules are taught primarily on Tuesdays, with some lectures taking place in the evening or at weekends to allow for your work patterns. Taught sessions and tutorial contact are balanced with online content and assessment is spread throughout the year to ease workload.

MA Arts and Education students follow a core modular structure that explores the past, current and future practice of arts education. You can personalise your learning through your choice of an optional module and pursue your interests within the expanded field of arts education through research and practice.
