The School of Art, Design & Printing Dublin Institute of Technology is offering a suite of Masters programmes specifically designed for honours graduates in fine art, multimedia, design, architecture and humanities. It has been developed by the School in collaboration with the Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media ( which delivers a structured Doctoral programme. The programme is centered around the development and delivery of a major project which can be either practice or theory based. Key features of this approach are the integrated delivery of Masters and Doctoral research methods as well as a special series of lectures providing a survey of key ideas in the study of contemporary cultural practice. The students will also avail of studio space throughout the program if required.

The programme combines the self-directed ethos of graduate academic research with the structured environment of a taught programme. Drawing on the diverse research and scholarly activity by staff in the School and the activities of GradCAM it aims to nurture and support an interdisciplinary approach to research and development within art, design and critical theory. This dynamic environment seeks to provide a framework for critical interdisciplinary dialogue and enquiry that facilitates, promotes and leads the interaction between cultural practice, educational practice and the everyday world of work and innovation beyond the academy. As part of the MA Program the students will be given the opportunity to take part in an intensive international program (for one week) with a group of MA programs from Saint Lucas Antwerp, Belgium and Ecole Cantonale d'Art du Valais, Serre, Switzerland.

The programme allows specialisation within a dynamic mix of critical and practical disciplines in art, design and/or critical theory – realised within the context of critical and philosophical debate. The series of thematic streams on offer will reflect the current practice, scholarly and research activity of staff and will be available to students in the Project Initiation, Project Development and Project Delivery modules. Initially, the following thematic streams will be offered:

• Text and Type - including Typography
• Narrative and the Image
• Design Participation and Usability - including Interior Design
• Art and Temporalities
• Semiotics and the Visual
• Memory and Material Culture
• Interpretation, Representation and Criticism
• Transdisciplinary Practices
