The Dublin School of Creative Arts is delighted to present a new MA in Visual and Critical Studies, which studies the theory and criticism of contemporary visual culture and the history of art and design. We offer the MA as part of the Creative Arts Masters Platform, which offers a unique opportunity for focussed study in an interdisciplinary environment along with MA students in art and design studio practice.

The MA Visual and Critical Studies is for graduates of visual culture, art history, design history, and philosophy of art. It is designed to provide students with the opportunity for focused study in contemporary visual culture, supported by archival and textual research.

Students of Visual and Critical Studies benefit from an extensive library at DIT, access to local art and design archives, the possibility of collaboration with local and national arts institutions, and the opportunity to work with faculty on live research projects.
