This programme is ideal for adventurous students who do not wish to be restricted within the boundaries of a single art discipline. Many artists today, while working primarily in one art, would see their work as informed by other media and traditions.
Why study Creative Arts?
Creative Arts encourages an entrepreneurial approach to creative practice. It combines the opportunity for original, practical work with the challenges of critical thought and reflection across eight subjects of which you choose two:
Mixed Media Textiles
You will be encouraged to explore and develop your own style and creativity and to be as experimental as possible. There will also be an emphasis on translating this into the world of industry.
Typical offer range for UK / EU applicants
280–320 UCAS Tariff points. Preferred subjects – Art, Art and Design, Fine Art, Photography, Textile Design, Dance, English, Music, Theatre Studies, Drama or Visual Arts (depending on subject choice).
Art Foundation course is also acceptable.
Offers may be based on portfolio of work (depending on subject choice).
This is a joint degree, but through optional and project modules the balance between your two subjects can be flexible.
The subjects are mainly delivered autonomously; that is, when you are doing art you are completely involved in that area. However, there are modules where you can explore relationships between disciplines, for example a module where composers and choreographers work together.
Cross-subject and collaborative projects are major pieces of independent work in Year 3, and offer opportunities to work across your subjects and to collaborate with like-minded artists. Examples have included: a music-theatre event, dance with film, a CD of songs to specially written texts, art installation with music or sound design, and film with a music score.
For details of modules please refer to the course descriptions for each subject within Creative Arts.
You choose modules from your two Creative Arts subjects (some of which may be compulsory modules), along with elective modules.
Years 2 and 3
You continue your two Creative Arts subjects and, in Year 3, undertake an individual project. Projects may be within one of your two subjects or you may use them to explore relations between the two disciplines. Alternatively you may undertake a collaborative project where you work with another artist.
Creative Arts students have gone on to become visual artists, dance practitioners, arts administrators, composers, writers, teachers, lecturers, and workshop leaders. Some Creative Arts students have maintained their spread of work across both subjects (for example, film-maker Kathy Hinde has also been active as composer with her music played by pianist Joanna Macgregor). Others see themselves as primarily a practitioner in one subject, but with their work informed by their experience in the other area.
Collaborative working, which is encouraged and supported in the programme, has an additional career benefit, in that you have two industries through which your work may reach a public, rather than one.
