This programme of study was designed in partnership with Sheridan College to provide an opportunity for graduates of Sheridan’s Computer Animation postgraduate certificates to complete an Master of Arts degree. IADT accepts the Sheridan certificate as equivalent to the first two semesters of its own programme. Sheridan graduates can complete the MA by successfully completing a third semester comprising of a Major Project module. In order to prepare for this module, students must also take a Research Methods course, offered at Sheridan, where they will undertake preliminary preparation for a self-directed piece of master’s level creative work.
During this module, students will devise a practice based or practice led project, working independently but under supervision, and with the support of specialist mentors in their area of practice and/or research. Projects are determined by the student, and should be proposed in an area in which you already have expertise and experience.
The final project will be presented in a form selected by the student, along with supporting research and reflective elements for assessment by a panel of academic and discipline experts. This can take a number of forms, and will be agreed between students and the teaching team.
Applications will include a project proposal and a statement of the student’s preparedness to undertake the work being proposed. We welcome applicants who have been working in their professional areas and want to return to education to complete an MA, as well as recent graduates.
The Major Project module for the 2021-22 academic year will begin on 25th October 2021, and will end on 5th March 2022.
Applications are due on 1st September 2021, and decisions will be made by 13th September.
Cost of this module is €5,335
