Professional Practice is embedded throughout all programmes and at all levels at the College to ensure that you develop the necessary range of intellectual, professional and contextual skills in order to maximise the opportunity for success in your chosen career after graduation.
The Professional Practice course provides an introduction to aspects of working in the visual communication industries and starts our students on the process of researching and planning their careers.
The study of Visual Culture involves creative, critical, and practicable knowledge of the polymathic field of the visual arts, situating an academic schooling in aesthetics and contemporary art theory within broader cultural and historical contexts.
It seeks to address key issues in contemporary art, theory, criticism and curating as a means of equipping you to work ambitiously in a globalised artworld.
While we study visual culture in its broadest sense and as a theoretical practice in its own right, we also investigate ways in which you can develop your practice in relation to the studio, diverse art spaces, public sites and virtual communities.
