|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 9 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course is designed to encompass studies undertaken either within ECA or on internship. Students work on a series of projects and are encouraged to collect and analyse research that is creatively informed and critically aware, and develop creative concepts through integrated iterative processes incorporating making, evaluating, presenting and reflection. The course will enable students to develop, and critically appraise, a body of clearly defined project material that communicates a progression of ideas and an awareness of contemporary creative practice and user/audience needs. Students will develop advanced creative methods, techniques, approaches, materials and processes, exploring how practitioners personally conceptualise briefs. They will begin to position their personal practice within the discipline, exploring a range of appropriate design methodologies and strategies for the professional presentation, exhibition and documentation of work, as appropriate.
