Arts and Community (Q3311)

30 credits, Level 6

Spring teaching

This module gives you the opportunity to work with cultural organisations and/or communities outside of the university. Its structure will be different each year that it runs in order to respond to new projects presented by, or forged with, external groups.

Indicative activities might include: creating a publication for distribution at a local venue, co-curating an exhibition, learning how to present research on museum collections in an engaging and accessible way, or creating new archives. Taking this module, you will be able to explore some of the practical applications of the skills that you have developed throughout your degree.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.
