Te Hono ki Toi (Poutiriao)/Master of Professional Creative Practice programme is collaboratively offered by EIT’s two iconic creative practice schools: ideaschool and Toihoukura. It offers a unique perspective from both the European and Māori creative culture allowing a wide selection of media to be advanced. The programme enables the student to further their creative practice through guided reflection, research and professional practice.
Delivery of the programme is “blended” – That is, it is a combination of on-line study, wānanga and research by creative practice. Students may be “based” at either Toihoukura or ideaschool but will have opportunities to engage with staff and students based at both schools and students who may be practicing throughout Aotearoa and indeed the world.
Master of Professional Creative Practice is a 180 credit programme with full-time study for one and 1/2 years at Level 9, consisting of four compulsory courses that provides students the opportunity to create a body of creative work to a standard that develops, extends and refines prior professional practices, processes and knowledge. This will be done through research and critical evaluation to strengthen their creative practice while contextualizing their practice in relation to relevant communities, contemporary concepts, models theory, technologies and professional practice management techniques.
