About

This Creative Practice programme at the Atlantic Technological University will give each student the opportunity to direct their own study tin the direction of either Research-Led/Based or Practice-Led/Based.

Overview

You can complete the Creative Practice programme at the Atlantic Technological University in a minimum of 3 Semesters (15 months) or take a maximum of up to 5 years in a part-time mode. The programme is 90 credits, with 30 credits of taught modules and 60 credits of 1:1 supervised research.  

The Research-Led/Based approach will provide students with the opportunity to conduct advanced enquiry into a research question. The student may employ a wide range of research methods derived from the social sciences or the arts to address concerns that are encountered in their creative field/industry. The student has a choice of assessment modes:

  • through a written dissertation (100% and 24,000-30, 000 words)
  • through a combination of written dissertation (no less than 60 % and 15,000-18000 words) and other research artefacts (up to 40%).   
  • The Practice-Led/Based approach provides students with the opportunity to pursue advanced enquiry into creative disciplines through practice. The focus is on the development of the student’s own creative work. The student’s dissertation will be split between a practice component (60%) accompanied by a written element (40%) of 9,000 - 12,000 words.

    So in summary, our Master of Arts allows students to foster either a practice-led industry based research element or applied practice as the primary. 

    The programme is designed as Level 9 Masters study for applicants who already hold an Honours Degree (2:2 minimum) in a cognate area.

    Career Opportunities 

    Official statistics from the CSO indicate that a total of approximately 13,000 people were employed in Creative Sector in the West of Ireland in 2015. The industry consists of close to 5,000 companies, the large majority of which are small to micro in scale. The creative, cultural and craft enterprises in the western region have a value of €729 million. The results of the Economic & Social Impact Assessment: West of Ireland Creative Sector Report (May, 2018) suggest that employment in the overall creative sector has experienced healthy growth in recent years with more than half of all business less than five years old. It is predicted that this rate of growth will continue up to 2040. On this basis, employment in the creative sector of the west of Ireland could reach over 15,000 by the end of the decade. Our programmes are intended to support this growth and facilitate industry-led research that will promote the development of the creative industries from the region and beyond.
