"MA Critical and Creative Analysis was a profound and engaging opportunity for personal and professional development. Intellectually and academically, I was surrounded by supportive and brilliant faculty and peers who challenged and nurtured me to propel my understanding of cultural theory, as well as my critical capacity.
I had the flexibility with choosing courses to design a platform to develop my skills and interests in feminism and qualitative research methodology. I also had the fantastic opportunity to engage with some of the outstanding lecture series and events that Goldsmiths hosts. The flexibility of the MA dissertation design allowed me to combine a practice element to implement the new skills I had acquired in social research, and take advantage of the fantastic internal resources at the College (e.g. the Women’s Art Library).
I also had opportunities to participate in research projects, such as the Sociology Department’s collaborative experiment in real-time ethnography that worked in partnership with the Richard House Children’s Hospice. The rigour of academic training from the programme has served to secure my funded placement in the doctoral programme at the Institute for Cultural Practices at the University of Manchester.
Additionally, I am continuing to enjoy the generous intellectual support of both faculty and peers that I met while at Goldsmiths, which has had such a positive impact on my personal and professional trajectory to this day."
