Course Summary

This is an innovative research programme exploring diverse exchanges between the creative arts, humanities and physical and social sciences. It combines research and practice to provide a critical environment within which students are encouraged to challenge existing disciplinary definitions. It focuses on interdisciplinary research methodologies and experiments with creativity across media and fields of knowledge, including new technologies when appropriate. Drawing on resources within Edinburgh College of Art and the wider University, this is a programme that is tailored to support each student's individual research project for which a proposal should be submitted as part of the application process. It can function as a research degree in its own right or as a step towards doctoral study.Prospective students might have had experience as creative practitioners beginning to engage with interdisciplinary working methods or have completed study in a specific subject and now seek to apply that knowledge through creative practice. In special cases equivalent experience may be considered as an alternative for previous degree qualifications.
