This is a one year full-time/two year part-time taught MA programme, multidisciplinary in nature which focuses on the growing area of social practice. This MA is distinctive in that:

    • It is delivered through theory and practice
    • It is open to practitioners of art and design
    • It is also open to experienced graduates outside the art and design fields.

    The course offers you a strong theoretical and critical grounding in the area of social practice, equips you with appropriate research skills, educates you in the roles you will play within communities/ situations/spaces, and ultimately, offers you a deep level of authentic experience and situated learning through the delivery and documentation of your self-chosen social practice project.The programme is delivered by both LSAD staff and a varied range of visiting lecturer specialists through an exciting mix of active learning, field research and engagement in the wider world.
