Designed to build the new expertise required for the ever-changing, fast developing 21st century media practice, this exciting course fosters individuality, confidence and creativity, focused on the processes of making and critiquing media that is socially, politically, economically and ethically engaged.
Students are taken seriously as media producers. We offer a creative space in which you will have the opportunity to build on your existing knowledge and practice, adopting new perspectives and learning new skills to help you thrive in the next stage of your career as a media producer – mastering techniques in the use of applications such Studio Artist, ISADORA and Klynt.
Why choose this course?
Technological advances have transformed the 21st century media landscape and led to a rethink of traditional media forms – anything and everything from music to television, books and movies – and their channels of distribution.
Grounded firmly in practice, this course aims to provide a detailed understanding of contemporary global media production and consumption – especially digital media – within a historical context. By making you aware of how key historical practitioners have shaped media alongside the latest practical, technological and theoretical developments within the profession, we hope to provide you with the means to construct new forms of imaginative material.
International experience opportunities
Our course is designed to reflect the increasingly international context of media production; this is reflected strongly in the course curriculum and is a response to the international nature of the cohort. Your own cultural heritage will influence the discussion and content of the course.
You will have the opportunity to engage with an international cohort of students. We also offer a range of short visits and field trips abroad, which are reviewed annually. Recent fieldtrips have included: Yorkshire, London and Skye (availability and additional costs may apply).
From the outset, this course is designed to prepare you for a broad range of positions as media practitioners by developing your technical and creative skills. The creative media industries offer career opportunities in a whole host of different organisations – production companies, publishing and broadcast outlets and art agencies.
