This Art and Design in Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) will enable you to share and investigate art education from theoretical, historical and practical perspectives.
It addresses key issues such as globalisation, alternative models for art education, new technologies and embodied learning. Students will explore the relationship between practical and theoretical modes of enquiry and learn to conduct research using appropriate methodologies.
Teaching and learning
Teaching methods include studio practice, lectures, seminars, and gallery-based learning delivered by IOE staff, visiting artists, lecturers and professionals working in universities, galleries and schools. Assessment is based on coursework assignments and the dissertation.
UCL Institute of Education's Art and Design MA students have a strong record of success in obtaining leadership roles in arts organisations and education.
Alumni are currently working as lecturers in further and higher education, heads of arts faculties in secondary schools, freelance artist educators in galleries and museums as well as careers advisers for the arts.
Many students use the course to explore new areas of critical and creative inquiry which has led to the establishment of alternative models outside of formal education. Graduates have also been very successful entering PhD programmes.
