School of Media, Arts and Humanities - for students and staff

MA Masterclasses

Specialist practitioners, mostly from outside of the University, will present and discuss their work and experience. The emphasis is on giving a sense of behind the scenes activity, their processes and tips, and also in connection with employment and funding initiatives. The sessions will take place on Wednesdays, 2-3.30pm on Zoom, including opportunities for Q&A and chat. Masterclasses are aimed, firstly, at MA students on media-practice modules but are open also to other students and researchers interested in attending.
