Established 25 years ago and led by Professor Victoria Walsh, the MA Curating Contemporary Art (CCA) programme is recognised both as an international leader in its field and for its commitment to collaborative group project-based work that integrates theory and practice throughout the two years of the curriculum. For 2017/18, we are introducing new areas of focus in response to the expanded field of curating and the widening professional opportunities for curatorial practice and research in a global context.
BA (Hons) Visual Culture at NCAD is the only graduate degree of its kind in Ireland, involving a critical study of art, design and popular culture history and theory, focusing on Post-War and Contemporary materials. An innovative learning experience, the course involved seminars, gallery/museum trips, collaborative projects, workshops, and work experience. This method encouraged a large degree of independent learning and developing new directions in research. Finally, Visual Culture incorporated a substantial degree of Professional Practice and work placement, allowing students to implement their knowledge in the professional environment.
