This programme is designed to meet the needs of committed students who are interested in exploring and exploiting their own possibilities as writers, and in critically examining their own writing. It is unique in combining creative and life writing in a stimulating and enriching programme.

We examine relevant literary and cultural theory as well as the politics and practicalities of language and writing from the point of view of the writer.

Practitioner-led, the programme offers you the opportunity to work with a range of published writers who visit the College to give readings and lead workshops.

Visiting writers have included William Fiennes, Jackie Kay and Aminatta Forna. Poetry Masterclasses have been led by Sharon Olds, Les Murray, Derek Walcott and C K Williams. We also expect to draw fully upon London’s rich tradition as a converging point for culturally diverse literary practices.

Our graduates have gone on to have successful careers as writers and have won awards including the Guardian First Book Award, the Eric Gregory Award, the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award, and the Dylan Thomas Prize. Two of our graduates (Ross Raisin and Evie Wyld) were recognised in Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 2013 list.

Modules & structure

There are three main components of the Masters:

  • Creative and life writing workshops
  • Contemporary Contexts for Creative and Life Writing
  • One-to-one tutorials

There will be two core modules: a two-term workshop in creative and life writing, and a one-term Contemporary Contexts for Creative and Life Writing seminar module.

Workshop in Creative and Life Writing

All students attend this two and-a-half-hour compulsory workshop – part-time students attend in their first year. In the first term you will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of genres in creative and life writing, and then in the second term to develop your individual interests in poetry, fiction, autobiography and biography, or perhaps a fusion of those genres.

Each term you submit a piece of your own writing together with a critical account of how you have structured and developed it. Presentations of your work to other students with an account of your aims and approaches form an additional important element.

Some workshops will be taken by visiting writers, introducing you to a range of practices, concerns and techniques. The workshop also enables you to debate issues raised in the Contemporary Contexts module in relation to your own practice.

Contemporary Contexts for Creative and Life Writing

This is a two-hour seminar module, made up of informal talks by visiting speakers, followed by a seminar. These talks might be by practising writers, biographers, critics or philosophers (from both outside and inside Goldsmiths).

Our notable visitors have included Ali Smith, A L Kennedy, Daljit Nagra and Jon McGregor. Wide-ranging topics have included: the role of the writer and politics; writing the self; the relationship between contemporary fiction and biography; the relationship between fictional and non-fictional autobiography; writers and their readers; the publishing world; contemporary ideas about language; gender and writing.

In both the Contemporary Contexts module and the workshops you will be asked to consider works by significant contemporary writers in relation to your own writing practice. Assessment is by a critical essay on a writer or literary issue. Full-time students take the Contemporary Contexts module in their first term and part-time students in their second year. 

Tutorials will be offered at regular intervals during the year (12 in all).

Options

You also choose an option module lasting one term. Full-time students take the module in the second term, while part-time students take it in the second year (second term). You can choose from a specialist workshop in fiction, poetry or life writing, or an option from the list of MA options offered by ECL including topics such as European Avant-Garde, Postmodernist Fiction or Re-writing Sexualities.

Assessment

Assessment is by the submission of four pieces of writing of 5,000 words each – either an essay, or, for workshops, a piece or pieces of creative or life-writing – plus a critical account of how you have structured and developed your work. You will also be assessed on a portfolio (maximum of 20,000 words) containing a piece or pieces of creative or life-writing together with a critical account of how you have structured and developed your work. In all cases, the number of words applies to prose. 

Careers

Graduates of this programme include Tom Lee, Lucy CaldwellRoss RaisinAmy Sackville, Rohan Kriwaczek, Evie WyldSara GrantNaomi FoyleBronia Kita, Lijia Zhang, Ashley Dartnell and Suzanne Joinson and the poets Emily Berry, Andy Spragg, Kate Potts, Jack Underwood, Abigail Parry, Anthony Joseph, Katrina Naomi and Matthew Gregory.

You will account for assignments in seminar papers, presentations or performances that explore how the assignment connects to the course unit, how systemic practice and theory have been applied, provide insight into the specific practice, explore the developments that emerge from it and the learning it creates.

Assessments of seminar papers and presentations provide an opportunity to consolidate and share learning from the course and practice and provide another level of feedback, reflection and discussion on practice learning.

Careers

The course helps your employability and career management in developing your abilities:

• to account for your practice as leader or consultant facilitating the development of organisations and the achievement of objectives
• to engage with and make sense of a job opportunity from a wider contextual awareness and mindfulness of the organisation as whole.
• to engage with the emergent possibilities rather than only the set properties of a particular job or position
• to use your reflective skills to account for your own practice, abilities and experience and how these contribute to developments in coherent and compelling ways.

This challenging master’s programme can help prepare you for a role in contemporary advertising in an account management, media planning, creative or agile role.

Customer engagement is increasingly key with the benefits of ‘big data’ providing detailed analytics for campaigns. Media planning is becoming more scientific and measurable, moving customers up the loyalty ladder to generate content for brands. Advertising is the catalyst to delivering integrated campaigns and Southampton Solent’s MA Advertising and Multimedia Communications programme prepares students for making a strategic contribution.

Recognising the close relationship with marketing and public relations, the course focuses on emerging forms of advertising which blur the boundaries with journalism and the importance of content marketing. Teaching is delivered by a team of industry professionals and the course covers the development of contemporary integrated marketing campaigns.

As the roles of multimedia advertising management, digital newsroom manager, marketing professional, and corporate PR manager are converging, students are encouraged to develop a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach, and will have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience by preparing campaigns for live client briefs. Students are also encouraged to seek work-placement and freelance opportunities through the University’s student run agency, Solent Creatives, as well as prepare competition briefs for the Design & Art Directors Association (D&AD) and the Young Creative Network (YCN).

What does this course lead to?

Graduates from this course will be well placed to pursue careers in national or international advertising agencies in roles such as account management, media and communications officer, or creative director.

Who is this course for?

This course is ideally suited to those who are looking to further their career in the advertising and communications industry. The curriculum will appeal to students with a particular interest in the integration of advertising, marketing, PR and journalism to create innovative strategic campaigns. 

What you will study

Year one

Advertising in a World of Converging Communication (30 credits)

This unit covers contemporary advertising practice and theory combining traditional mass media approaches with emerging social media and mobile channels. This unit develops practical skills and a critical awareness of the issues and practices within advertising in a world where increasingly the target audience can skip ads and brands combine paid, owned, earned and shared media to engage consumers. After introducing advertising principles, the unit moves on to explore the digital mix, content marketing, native advertising and immersive, augmented experiences. The traditional advertising roles of art director, copywriter, account manager and media planner are still important industry pathways but are increasingly challenged by agile practice, this unit considers the implications. Assessments are designed to test application of your learning in both theory and practice. 

Multimedia Campaign Planning (30 credits)

Students get the practical opportunity to develop and implement a number of campaign activities across a wide variety of platforms, testing their ability to integrate paid, owned, shared and earned media in a PR campaign.

Media Measurement & Evaluation (15 credits)

This unit introduces students to the challenge of measurement techniques applied in advertising, marketing, promotion and PR sectors, including the evolution of RoE (return on engagement)

Research Methods (15 credits)

This unit raises the students’ research skills to Master’s level, including SPSS and other methodologies that are relevant to their particular areas of interest (Shared Unit)

Professional Practice (30 credits)

This unit positions the MA programme in terms of the student’s career aspiration, identifying skill sets and development needs in a PDP, which forms the basis of a freelance/workplace project- and informs the student’s choice of Major Project or dissertation

Major Project/Dissertation (60 credits)

The culmination of the MA degree, where the theory and practice learned in the previous units informs the student’s principal learning outcome- a campaign that demonstrates their professional attainment or a dissertation that critically examines a crucial industry issue, generating original thinking. Both project and dissertation require primary research to a master’s level.

Facilities

We provide a stimulating learning environment and access to state-of-the-art resources to help you make the most of your time with us. Flexible spaces, Wi-Fi facilities and learning zones all contribute to our lively and contemporary study environment at Solent.

Past students on the University’s creative advertising courses have benefitted from visits to London-based advertising and creative agencies.

Students who are in work while taking the course have the opportunity to adapt the topic of their assignments in several units to suit the needs of their employers.

Placements

The Professional Practice unit requires students to undertake a work placement or complete a freelance project. Students are encouraged to source their own client (through Solent Creatives) or to find a work placement that is appropriate to their career ambitions. The minimum requirement for a placement is two weeks, however placements and projects can vary in length, depending on client needs.

Why this course?

The 21st century is witnessing an unprecedented growth in technological innovation, across all business sectors.

Today’s business professionals are required to have a strong understanding of how technology and innovation must meet with the demand for technology driven products and/or services.

Yet, the majority of business undergraduates lack the necessary educational background that would allow them to fully understand how emerging technologies open the way to new business opportunities. Likewise, graduates from engineering lack the necessary business background that would enable them to focus their innovativeness and skills in economically sustainable ideas for new products and/or services.

This course simply lays the bridge for the two disciplines to come closer.

Our Department of Marketing in Strathclyde Business School and the Department of Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management (DMEM) in our faculty of Engineering, have collaborated to develop a masters level programmes to bridge this gap.

What you’ll study

The course comprises two teaching semesters. Semester one consists of the core classes, namely Brand Management & Product Strategy, Strategic Marketing, Innovation Management and Financial Implications of Innovation.

In semester two there is the opportunity to focus on specific topics that may be of interest to individual students.

The semester comprises four electives coming from Marketing, namely Marketing Research, Export Marketing, Services Marketing and B2B & Key Account Management; and four electives coming from Design, Manufacture & Engineering Management, namely Strategic Supply Chain Management, Management of Total Quality & Continuous Improvement, Design Methods and Supply Chain Operations.

As a student studying this course, at this stage you will need to combine two classes from Marketing with two from DMEM in such a way that the resulting set of the four electives will best fit your career vision and plans.

Major projects

During the second semester, together with another three to four of your colleagues, you'll have the opportunity, as a group, to get involved in the Marketing Works projects.

The two departments supporting this course pull together their resources and substantial links with industry to secure opportunities for the students to get involved with a real-life problem facing a company.

During this project, under the supervision of one of the lecturers in the course, your group will act as a “consulting agency”, will meet with the customer and receive briefing and then work together to prepare a realistic and efficient solution to the customer’s problem.

This is a unique experience that will enable you not only to use your newly acquired knowledge and skills in practice but also give you a better understanding of the challenges laying ahead after graduation.

Course awards

Upon successful completion of all the requirements (taught classes, Marketing Works project and Dissertation) you receive a Master of Science in Innovation & Marketing Management.

This requires you to collect 180 credits. A Diploma in Innovation & Marketing Management is also available for students who manage to collect no less than 120 credits.

Unique in Europe

This is the only Masters course available in Europe that brings together the field of Marketing and Engineering in an integrated course that allows graduates to pursue a professional career in either direction with tremendous success.

Course content

Modules

  • Brand Management & Strategy
  • Strategic Marketing
  • Marketing Research
  • Export Marketing
  • International Services Marketing
  • B2B & Key Account Management
  • Dissertation
  • Business Works
  • Innovation Management
  • Financial Implications of Innovation
  • Strategic Supply Chain Management
  • Management of Total Quality and Continuous Improvement
  • Design Methods
  • Supply Chain Operations

Learning & teaching

Teaching will involve lecturing, case study discussion and analysis, in-class learning exercises and group tasks.

All classes (core and elective) will involve at least one guest lecture from practitioners to allow students to grasp the perspective from the real business world.

Where necessary and appropriate (for example “Marketing Research” class) students will also have to attend workshops to build the required practical skills.

Assessment

Assessment will rely on class work and exams (for core classes). The latter will account for no less than 50% and the former no more than 40% of the students’ total mark. Final mark for elective classes will rely on an individual major assignment the students will have to submit.
