This course will allow you to explore a range of contemporary visual and arts-based research methods and you will develop your skills in collecting, analysing, editing and disseminating visual and arts-based data.
This programme is a unique, research-based course, which does not follow the traditional model of lectures and exams. You will join the research community through an ongoing series of workshops and optional lectures. The MRes will enable you to excel in both the academic sector and the job market through individually tailored learning experiences.
Your assessment will be based on a final dissertation of no more than 12,000 words and an arts-based or visual output such as an ethnographic documentary, non-factual film, photographic or arts-based project.
Your dissertation will be read and evaluated, and you will be invited to make a oral presentation of your work.
The use of audio-visual, creative and innovative methodologies is becoming part of our daily language within and outside academia. This MRes will help develop your research, dissemination and public engagement skills as well as your own personal creativity and research skills; skills that are highly sought after in the current job market.
