The course will give you the opportunity to develop your own approach to the subject. Underpinned by theory and research, you will investigate and test spatial possibilities.

Projects will look at public and private spaces, narrative and designed environments and community engagement. You will work with staff and external communities. We will encourage collaborative and multidisciplinary ways of working. The course will prepare you for a variety of careers in the creative industries and beyond.
