Art Writing MA

UCA's new MA in Art Writing is designed to help you become an expert in the conceptual and analytic understanding of contemporary art.

Through small group seminar teaching at UCA Canterbury, you will use writing as your tool to articulate ideas, analytic methods and research projects – whether it's a short review, an essay, a draft document or a longer analytical study. The skills you will gain on this course will intensively prepare you for doctoral study (available at UCA), as well as for working professionally and strategically in cultural institutions of all kinds, and engaging with participants and organizations in all sectors of the global art world.
