MA - The Contemporary

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The MA in the Contemporary is an interdisciplinary programme in the field of contemporary culture. This new programme is a unique collaboration between the University of Kent and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London which allows students to choose from a range of modules, each focusing on different aspects of contemporary culture. Jointly taught by academics and practitioners in the School of English and the School of Arts at the University of Kent and the ICA, the programme allows students to enrich their academic knowledge with a practical internship at the ICA. The MA in the Contemporary will provide students with a deep understanding of the relationship between disciplines in the arts and an appreciation of the way in which interdisciplinary thinking makes it possible to grasp and respond to key issues in contemporary culture. This pioneering educational opportunity will equip students with the skills, knowledge and professional experience to progress into areas such as artistic practice, related higher postgraduate research, arts management and policy. The course has been designed to enable students to develop a range of transferable skills which will assist them in pursuing careers in a variety of fields. Students will be able to choose from a wide variety of modules in the areas of Contemporary Literature, Creative Writing, Film, Drama and History and Philosophy of Art. Students will also be invited to attend an induction at the ICA at the start of their studies to introduce them to the facilities and will be encouraged to make use of the ICA's programme of seminars and events.
