Master of Arts Architectural Interior Design, Year 2

Interior design courses

Aims of the programme:

Part 2 (60 credits Dissertation)

Following completion of Part 1, Part 2 leads to the achievement of the Master’s Award Validated by Wrexham Glyndŵr University in partnership with and delivered by Inchbald School of Design

The research module is delivered through a series of tutorials following a module launch outlining the requirements of the dissertation stage.  The module seeks to integrate theoretical knowledge with practical application of skills.  To do this, the student will be required to negotiate and agree a topic for research and analysis and whether the learning outcomes are to be achieved through a written submission or a written submission with a related body of practical work.  The dissertation may be up to be 15,000 words on a subject agreed in advance with dedicated tutors and the Course Director and will be described as submission by dissertation.  A student negotiating a body of related practical work will be permitted to submit a smaller word count dissertation of minimum 5000 words with a notional learning time given to practice of 400 hours – this will be described as submission by project.  Both submission by dissertation and project will be assessed against the same learning outcomes as theory and practice are fused.  This proposal and negotiation stage will come under the control of the Faculty Committee for final approval and ratification.

 

Regular tutorial and seminar support is given throughout the module by the supervising tutors.  Students are required to pursue their research as self-directed study and independent learning, with supervisors identified in relation to their specialist subjects and specific interests.

Students may amend, vary and change the subject area of their submission whilst in the initial stages of research. They are advised to consult one or more of the MA tutors in relation to any proposed change which must be recorded in a written tutorial record. It is made clear to students that the research undertaken in any given area may lead to a refinement of further investigation that can re-direct the thrust of the investigation.
