Recognising the range of methodologies used in socially engaged art that draw on educational concepts and forms, the MA SEA is a site for experimental learning and critical debate in socially engaged art and education practice. The programme is coordinated by artist Fiona Whelan and Nuala Hunt - Head of Continuing Education in NCAD. Other staff include artists Chris Maguire, Glenn Loughran, Ailbhe Murphy and Marie Barrett as well as adult educator Anne Gallagher and community worker John Bissett.

The MA SEA will attract students from a range of disciplines who want to immerse themselves in a trans-disciplinary enquiry. Applicants should have a Level 8 (BA Hons) degree in art or design or in another discipline with a personal and demonstrable commitment to the arts in social contexts.
