History of Design, New MA Programme + MRes Humanities Launch
British Council, New York Office, British Consulate General, 845 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10022
13-14 June 2016
The RCA’s School of Humanities offers interdisciplinary training in critical, curatorial, historical and theoretical approaches to art, design and architecture, at the heart of the world’s leading university of art and design (QS, 2015 & 2016). Graduates go on to leadership roles in universities, museums and galleries, arts programming, journalism and publishing, or to work as independent researchers and writers.
In 2016/17, V&A/RCA MA in History of Design will fully launch a new programme that integrates practice-based, public-facing methods with design and material culture-led historical research.
At the same time, the School will launch MRes Humanities, a new and distinct one-year Master’s in Research programme that will foster experimentation, risk-taking and critical and creative thinking through humanities research.
Introducing History of Design and the MRes, Dr Sarah Teasley, Head of Programme, V&A/RCA History of Design, and Professor Jane Pavitt, Dean of the School of Humanities, will also discuss:
- Preparing for research and curatorial careers in the arts and humanities
- What practice-based, public-facing history can do
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
This event is aimed at graduates and early- to mid-career professionals in art and design-related humanities, gallery or museums work, or those considering a career transition into these areas.
For those interested in applying to the School’s MA or MRes programmes, one-to-one consultations with Professor Pavitt and Dr Teasley are also available on 13 June.
