Artistic Research is integral to the academic programme at Burren College of art. In BCA’s PhD programme, which is accredited by NUI Galway, students focus on a research topic, which they explore through artistic practice in order to make a significant contribution to new knowledge. Research at BCA represents the plurality of approaches to contemporary artistic praxis, is interdisciplinary and often informed by collaboration across multiple fields.
