Course content

What will you study on the MA Fashion?

Our exciting postgraduate programme offers a multidisciplinary framework for advanced independent, creative and challenging areas of study. Through a combination of practical and theoretical work, you will study practical, contextual and current forms of fashion communication. You will study current communication processes in order to question and disrupt the established fashion communication industry and position yourself at the forefront of emerging fashion narratives.

What will you gain?
  • You will gain invaluable insight into your own cultural identity, creative practice and specialist areas of interest
  • You will be able to produce a unique and innovative body of work that demonstrates your creativity and innovative thinking
  • This unique opportunity to define your area of specialism allows you the space to create compelling still or moving image, new practices in digital media, insightfully written narratives, emotive and engaging content or find new ways to challenge the future of fashion communication

This course is divided into five modules taken over three semesters (if studied full time). Each module is designed to be flexible, allowing you to bring your own fashion interests and pathway choice to the assignments while extending the boundaries of your current artistic practice through experimentation, research, analysis, and creative exploration.

  • Modules
    • Developing Practice (30 credits)

      In this module you will explore a chosen area of fashion in a contemporary context while enhancing your technical skills. You'll employ a variety of reflective methods to develop your own creative research proposal with the advanced communication skills to present, discuss and evaluate your work effectively.

    • Critical Debates (30 credits)

      In this module you'll explore the key concepts, ideas, issues and research methodologies relating to the practice and theory of fashion. With particular focus on the cultural and social contexts within your chosen discipline, you'll produce a portfolio of critical responses to contemporary debates in research and professional practice.

    • Body and Space (30 credits)

      In this module you will explore the relationship between fashion and the body through both practical and written work related to your chosen pathway. Looking specifically at dialogue between our bodies and our garments, you'll justify how your work is influenced by this relationship and how you might inform and evolve your practice.

    • Advanced Research (30 credits)

      In this module you will examine a diverse range of advanced approaches to fashion research using both historical and contemporary sources. This module will enable you to explore the work of practitioners and scholars in fashion, and the contemporary research problems they face.

    • Major Project (60 credits)

      Using research methodologies, concepts and processes previously explored in the course you will evaluate interrelationships between theory and practice. You will produce a fully-realised, original body of work with significant commercial or conceptual relevance, supported by critical and reflective written work.
