Research and Practice (20 Credits)
This unit will support you to develop your understanding of the role and value of various research methods. Through a particular focus on practice-based research and different methods of analysis, critique and contextual writing, you’ll explore a variety of approaches to research and its impact on practice.
Engaging with Practice (40 Credits)
With a focus on identifying and enhancing your individual interests, this unit will encourage reflective approaches that enable you to choose your postgraduate direction.
Emphasising the need for independent learning supported by both individual and group tutorials, you’ll be given opportunities to consolidate your practice and organise your learning through presentations and knowledge exchange with both visiting practitioners from industry and postgraduate tutors.
Project Development (40 Credits)
You’ll test and challenge your own practice, building on work developed in previous units. As part of this, you’ll be involved in a range of iterative experiments to help you critically reposition and contextualise your practice.
This unit will help to reinforce your own critical position in relation to your practice while offering the opportunity for you to position, consider or analyse work from a politically, socially and culturally informed standpoint.
Critical Contextualisation (20 Credits)
You’ll develop a multidisciplinary theoretical background that can critically contextualise, support and inform your Project Development Unit.
Supporting an integrated approach between research and practice, this unit will help you to develop academic language skills as well as research and analysis methods to help you to study on a range of postgraduate courses at London College of Communication.
