Taught by some of the UK's leading practitioners and specialists in Printmaking, Art and Design, 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 Printmaking interests to the assignments while extending the boundaries of your current artistic practice through experimentation, research, analysis, and creative exploration.

The majority of this programme is centred around developing and fully completing a substantial body of print based work towards an external public exhibition. This will be supported by research reports and regular presentations on the progress of the project.

Developing Practice – Term 1 (30 Credits)
Through a combination of studio, practice and text based methods you will explore a chosen area of your Printmaking in a contemporary context while enhancing your technical skills. By the end of this module you'll be able to 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 – Term 1 (30 Credits)
Through a series of lectures, seminars and reading groups you'll explore the key concepts, ideas, issues and research methodologies relating to the practice and theory of Printmaking. 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.

Printmaking and Exhibition – Term 2 (30 Credits)
Using a selection of research methods and studio approaches you will propose and create a body of printed work supported by a clear and contextualized written report on the outcomes. To do this you will explore and define a printmaking practice from a design, illustration or fine art practice while engaging with new methods and forms of presentation, such as 3D printing and installation. By the end of this module you will have developed the advanced knowledge, skills and understanding of specialist and crossover Printmaking practice to enhance and inform your final Major Project.

Advanced Research – Term 2 (30 Credits)
Through a series of lectures, workshops, seminars and individual tutorials you will examine a diverse range of advanced approaches to Printmaking research using both historical and contemporary sources. This module is designed to prepare you for your final Major Project by enabling you to explore the work of practitioners and scholars in Printmaking, and the contemporary research problems that they face. By the end of this module you will have produced an illustrated Research Survey demonstrating your investigations and findings.

Major Project – Term 3 (60 Credits)
The final module is an opportunity for you to bring together the knowledge and skills that you have acquired during the course and apply them to a significant project of Printmaking. Using research methodologies, concepts and processes previously explored in the course you will evaluate interrelationships between theory and practice. By the end of this final module you will have produced a substantial body of practice work for external public exhibition, supported by critical and reflective written work that demonstrates your resolution and expertise.
