Designed by You - MA (Specialist Title) via Creative Practice

If you’re after an innovative and exciting master’s that is tailored to your career aspirations, then look no further! We offer you the chance to expand your creative practice through a range of projects of your choosing.

Design your own masters degree

The team at the University of Bolton will help you develop a body of work perfectly suited to your ambitions, whether that is in Animation, Art and Design, Fashion, Dance, a combination of these, or any other creative discipline on our list.

The other parts of this master’s degree are split between two taught modules:

Academic, Creative and Professional Development

This module is all about developing your research and analytical skills, critical competencies and prepare you for a career in the creative and artistic industries. Leaving this course with the ability to apply for funding, assess and critique work and organise exhibitions will both empower you and open up considerable opportunities.

Creative Practice within the profession

The second module is an invitation to develop within the creative professional world you wish to join. Each member of the team is committed to making sure you leave our course with the skills needed to both develop your profile within the industry, but also get your work to audiences who will appreciate it.

It’s all about development

You will not only work with talented, seasoned academics who deliver course content but each one of them has industry experience, are practising artists and performers, or have real-world links to organisations, supporting your networking opportunities.

We will help you develop your academic, personal and professional skills, so that you get to the end of your MA (Specialist Title) via Creative Practice, with an industry-relevant creative CV and portfolio.

Where it can take you

This master’s degree will lay the foundations for a journey into the world of creative arts, whether that is employment at an art organisation, freelance writers and illustrators or charitable work. 

By choosing a personalised degree, you are taking control of both your personal and professional development, standing out from the crowd in a highly competitive industry, that rewards drive and passion.
