Applications invited for our MA programmes

The IMCC in association with the Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies invites applications for our new MA programmes, starting in September 2011: MA Museums, Galleries and Cultural Institutions and MA Creative Writing: Writing the City.

These join our very successful existing Masters in Cultural & Critical Studies, English Literature, and Visual Culture – which are also open for applications for September 2011 – and are taught by a course team that for each programme is composed of leading scholars, critics, curators, creative writers and fine art practitioners.

MA Museums, Galleries and Cultural Institutions

This new Masters course looks at the changing roles of cultural institutions in the 21st Century. It has been designed for students wishing to work as curators, arts organisers, museum professional and other contemporary cultural managers, and has been developed through the University’s close relationships with museums and galleries in London. You will examine key issues and themes in the museums and gallery sector, and explores how these are dealt with not just in theory, but also on a day-to-day basis by leading institutions. You will learn about the challenges faced by museums and galleries, how they confront them and how they are developing innovative practices in relation to their collections, exhibitions and audiences. Much of the teaching takes place in collaboration with the partner institutions, on site and working with curators and professionals from the sector.

MA Creative Writing: Writing the City

The new MA Creative Writing: Writing the City is the first to focus entirely on the city of London. The course will allow you to explore the city as subject matter from a range of perspectives and across all genres. Taught by professional writers and researchers, the course will also offer plenty of opportunities to network with other writers, agents, TV producers and performance poets. The course aims to provide a theoretical and practical platform to enable you to develop your understanding and become part of the London writing scene. The course is based in the University of Westminster’s flagship building at 309 Regent Street, which means you will be writing about the city in the heart of London with ready access to the capital’s excellent academic, social and cultural opportunities, including the vibrant West End theatre scene.

Applications can be made through UKPass
