Professional development modules
Arts in Society
This module examines the issues and debates that surround curatorial practices in the visual arts. Through historical and contemporary case studies, gallery visits and visiting speakers, students will examine a range of approaches to curating and exhibition making. The module will be relevant to students with an interest in exhibitions as a medium for the production and dissemination of knowledge, and offers them an opportunity to participate in collaborative projects and to develop an exhibition proposal of their own design.This module is designed to encourage students to think about the broader context of the Arts: to appreciate, evaluate and communicate the value of the Arts beyond the academy. Students will engage with the practices and techniques required to produce advanced research and develop the skills to communicate this research to a variety of audiences.
Research Methods: The Laboratory of the Arts
This module enhances students’ research skills, to support engagement in high-level research on a disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and transdisciplinary basis. An array of research techniques and methodologies will be critically reviewed and students will develop skills in gathering research insights from a range of sources drawn from across the Faculty.

The Language Centre offers modern language modules which will provide you with language training ranging from beginners to more advanced levels. This may be useful for your masters course or a future PhD, and also in seeking employment in professions based overseas or with an international presence in the UK.

The modules listed above are provisional and subject to change. Participation on all the modules depends on them being compatible with the timetable for the modules taken within your department, and with the course syllabus. The modules may also be capped, so (like any subsidiary module) registration on to them cannot be guaranteed. Not all modules are available for all courses.
The modules we offer are inspired by the research interests of our staff and as a result may change for reasons of, for example research developments or legislative changes. This list is an example of typical modules that we offer, not a definitive list.
If you have questions about any of these options, please contact Dr Jonathan Tallant, Head of Postgraduate Teaching, Faculty of Arts
Instead of the modules outlined above, you have the option to take up to 30 credits of modules from a list of masters-level modules offered by different disciplines across the Faculty of Arts.
