This module requires you to reflect on and employ your insights, skills and experiences from across the programme to complete an independent project that evaluates and advances research relating to current arts and cultural sector issues and practices, and your professional development. You will employ collaborative approaches to engage with relevant academic staff and research groups, the programme partnership network and peers to explore and undertake an independent project. There will be flexibility to select a project and output pathway. You will apply research and project management methods and techniques and demonstrate academic and professional ethical awareness. In integrating theory and practice, your analysis and final output will engage with and extend your understanding of current issues and debates and industry and professional contexts.
