Through a combination of studio, practice and text based methods you will explore a chosen area of Jewellery Futures in a contemporary context while enhancing your technical skills. By the end of this module you'll be able to employ a variety of reflective methods to develop your own creative research proposal with the advanced communication skills to present, discuss and evaluate your work effectively.

Critical Debates – Term 1 (30 credits)

Through a series of lectures, seminars and reading groups you'll explore the key concepts, ideas, issues and research methodologies relating to the practice and theory of Jewellery Futures. With particular focus on the cultural and social contexts within your chosen discipline, you'll produce a portfolio of critical responses to contemporary debates in research and professional practice.

Advanced Research – Term 2 (30 credits)

Through a series of lectures, workshops, seminars and individual tutorials you will examine a diverse range of advanced approaches to jewellery research using both historical and contemporary sources. This module is designed to prepare you for your final Major Project by enabling you to explore the work of practitioners and scholars in your chosen area and the contemporary research problems they face. By the end of this module you will have produced an illustrated Research Survey demonstrating your investigations and findings.

Jewellery Futures – Term 2 (30 credits)

The final module is an opportunity for you to bring together the knowledge and skills that you have acquired during the course and apply them to a significant project encompassing Jewellery Futures.
