What will you study on the BA Professional Practice, Arts and Creative Industries (specialisation)?
- This course is delivered using online tools, with individual academic advisers provided for students on the course. You will be expected to have regular access to the web and email.
- The content of the course is mainly based on the exploration and understanding of professional practice with the introduction of relevant knowledge and skills to facilitate professional inquiry. Current practice-based experience is essential and all applicants are expected to show that they will be engaged in practice either full time, part time, paid or voluntary, or through professional engagements.
- You will be assigned tasks that involve: creating blogs and wikis; reflective reports; written reports; audio-visual resources, professional artefacts, inquiry projects, and oral presentations. Students will engage in reflection upon their practice, and be expected to communicate with other students and other professionals about their studies, work and ideas. The focus is on the establishing practice of the student rather than content 'owned' or 'held' by the University. The programme introduces higher education capabilities and skills and develops professional practice. This builds in complexity, leading to a major project based upon and designed to benefit professional practice.
The programme consists of three modules:
Establishing Professional Practice (30 credits) - Compulsory
Principles of Professional Inquiry (30 credits) - Compulsory
Professional Inquiry (60 credits) – Compulsory
Themes in the programme include:
