Creative Project (811W3)

60 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

All year

Creative Project will comprise individual supervisions with a tutor who will be allocated to you once your proposed project has been agreed. You will complete a creative project title proposal form at the end of the Spring term and this will be considered and agreed by the MA convenor in consultation with the appropriate tutor. Your choice of creative project will stem from your specialisms and interests as defined by the pathway you have taken in earlier semesters. Within the terms of the Creative Project, you can, subject to agreement by your tutor, undertake a portfolio of musical compositions; a portfolio of film and/or media compositions; a portfolio of studio compositions; a music theatre project; a sound environments project; or an independent project. The Creative Project must constitute a substantive example of creative practice; many such projects integrate an element of public performance and/or display; however, proposed materials for assessment must be agreed at the time of completing the creative project title proposal form (for example in the form of musical scores, sound/video files etc).
