Research Methods for Arts Higher Education

In this unit (that is mandatory on the MA Academic Practice) you will identify an academic practice topic that interests you, and refine this topic into a feasible research enquiry. You will test a range of methodologies and methods that might be appropriate for your study, leading the design of a research proposal that you will then develop and implement within the Dissertation unit.

During the unit you will:

  • Attend a series of workshops, presentations and seminars
  • Identify literature relevant to your topic and produce an annotated bibliography (2000 words)
  • Practise using a selected research method and write an evaluative account (2000 words)
  • Produce a research proposal (3000 words).
