This programme builds on London's position as one of the most important musical centres in the world, with a diverse range of concert halls, theatres, cultural institutions and arts events that reflect its cosmopolitan and multicultural society- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-arts-admin-cultural-policy-music-pathway/

Although professional management practice is a major element of the programme, the 'creative arts event' is the starting point for all teaching.

A music pathway has been added to the MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy, which is run by the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths.

Instead of specialist theatre modules you take one 30 credit module from the MA Music or MMus programmes, and your dissertation/placement/business-plan will be directed towards musical organisations.

The MA introduces the key issues that concern the management of culture and in particular those within the performing arts.

Through both analysis of contemporary and recent practice, and practical work in a range of areas, you will develop a critical approach to the discipline.

The pathway provides an overview of the following areas:
arts funding structures in the UK (with reference to EU countries and the USA)
marketing for the arts
audience development
sponsorship
education programmes within the arts
programming
culture and tourism
cultural policy (including the role of the arts in national and cultural identity) and principles and structures of management
The aim of taught modules, projects and placements is to introduce you to new models of practice. These will be investigated and evaluated as a way of developing an understanding of management principles. Through this process, you will also be equipped with the necessary practical skills to enhance your potential as arts administrators.

Computer security is one of the key challenges in contemporary computing. You will gain critical knowledge within the cyber security and digital forensic domains, combining academic principles and industrial practice. The course is informed by current research in security and digital forensics, and is underpinned by our experience with external partners in law enforcement, financial institutions, and other knowledge transfer activities. Course specialisms include network security, penetration testing, incident response, malware analysis, cryptography, audit and compliance, and host and mobile digital forensics. The specialisation you gain in the taught modules is further developed through an extensive research-based MSc dissertation project, leading towards a mastery of a subject area and enhancing your particular specialism.

This MSc is also one of a very small number of courses certified by GCHQ, recognising UK universities which are excellent in Cyber Security.

What you’ll learn

This course focuses on the areas of securing computer, network and communications systems, incident response, and the forensic investigation of digital devices and networks. Computer security is a growth industry, and is vital in modern computing environments. You will gain foundation knowledge in all the key areas of computing cyber security, both defensive and offensive, as well as post incident response. The digital forensic aspects of the course include network and computer forensics, allowing you to develop the knowledge required to conduct computer-related investigations across networks, systems, and other digital devices. Cyber security and digital forensics are becoming significant computing disciplines, with an acknowledged skill shortage coupled with growing employment opportunities.

Our industry informed course combines thorough coverage of academic theory aligned with extensive hands-on practical activities, supported by online and blended materials with virtualised lab environments that complement our on-campus specialist facilities.

The School of Computing has developed close ties with industry, law enforcement, and the public sector, through partnerships with organisations such as Cisco Systems, Guidance Software, Dell Secure Works, NCA, NCC, Police Scotland, and many others. The course benefits from this by including many guest lecturers by industry experts. Through the dedicated cyber security and forensic research group extensive cutting edge research is also carried out in key domains by an ever growing cohort of Phd students. The programme also has an affiliation with The Cyber Academy here at Edinburgh Napier, which integrates formally with a range of international initiatives including into a European Centre of Excellence, along with the EU-funded DFET project, which is building a world class virtualised infrastructure for Cyber Security teaching and training, with strong links into law enforcement industry and academia across the World.

Modules

• Host-Based Forensics
• Network Security
• Security Audit and Compliance
• e-Security
• Incident Response and Malware Analysis
• Computer Penetration Testing
• Dissertation

Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.

Careers

The continued growth in the current requirement for cyber security and digital forensics professionals means there are a wide range of careers which can be followed after graduating from the course, such as security consultant/analyst, penetration tester, network security analyst, forensic investigator, audit/compliance consultant, security certification engineer, incident response analyst, cisco security engineer/architect, sys admin, network engineer.

The programme develops a range of key skills currently needed in industry, covering areas such as network security, penetration testing, security monitoring, incident response, malware analysis, operating systems, network and computer forensics, virtualisation and malware analysis. Materials from many professional courses are integrated into the curriculum, towards helping students prepare for sought after professional certification such as Cisco Security Certifications, CISSP, and CREST.

You choose one 'Shared Module', and then you take the Management and Professional modules which are broken up into Business Planning for Arts Organisations and an Internship.

The Shared Modules will allow you to continue to develop your understanding of a creative practice, or a specialist area of management. This module, therefore, comprises studies in one area of creative practice eg. Music, Theatre and Performance, Visual Arts, Entrepreneurship, or Cultural Diplomacy. (For some modules it will be necessary for a student to have a background in the area they wish to study as they are primarily concerned with the discipline rather than its administration/management – for example in music).

Summer term

Taught one day a week, you will have lectures and seminars that cover contemporary arts management issues such as: copyright and performing rights; touring; cultural leadership and diplomacy; and further develops some areas introduced earlier in the year, such as arts and tourism. During the term there are also timetabled sessions for individual tutorials relating to your dissertation.

If you are a graduate seeking to enhance your prospects in wastes management or change your career direction, then you should consider this Master’s programme. It has been specifically designed to meet the needs and demands of the modern wastes management industry.

The School of Science and Technology at the University of Northampton is a Centre for Excellence in Wastes Management and our MSc course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Waste Management.

If you do not meet our standard entry requirements, it is possible to undertake a single module and, upon successful completion of this module, progress to the full MSc qualification, contact us at to discuss this option.

Course content

The programme is divided into three stages. To complete the Master’s level qualification you must complete six modules and an independent research thesis to a total of 180 credits. During the course, you complete three compulsory modules and choose three optional modules in stages one and two. Optional modules are subject to staff availability and student interest. Each 20 unit module will be equivalent to 200 hours of study and the module guide, which you will have access to during your studies, has details on how these are allocated. The Research Thesis is worth 60 credits and is therefore equivalent to 600 hours of study.

The research thesis (dissertation) is the final compulsory module in stage three. This ensures that you study the same broad themes within wastes management, but are also able to tailor the focus and level of the qualification to suit your individual needs, experience, interests and career aspirations.

You can also take certain modules as a ‘one off’, either as a taster before deciding whether to study the course in full, or as an opportunity to update your skills in a particular area.

The MSc in Biomedical Science (Online) is a part-time, distance learning programme designed for students working in a hospital/laboratory setting. Read more
The MSc in Biomedical Science (Online) is a part-time, distance learning programme designed for students working in a hospital/laboratory setting. The programme comprises 4 structured stand-alone online learning modules from the Biomed Online Learning Programme and a workplace based project.

Students apply for the MSc programme after completing four online modules and once they have their project idea approved. The project is conceived by the individual but carefully scrutinised by a suitably qualified team drawn from the university and workplace before implementation and normally conducted in the workplace under guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner, and the whole overseen by an academic supervisor from the university. This helps to ground the programme with relevance to workplace requirements.

The online learning modules each offer Continuing Professional Development credits and each has been designed to be relevant to workplace practice. Students are given a free choice of modules, currently sixteen, so that they can tailor their studies to the needs of their workplace and their individual areas of interest. The online modules run for two intakes each year - October to January, and April to July.

The programme is not intended to be an 'end point' in an individual's personal development, but as a stage from which they can continue career development and increase their potential to make greater contributions to overall employer needs.

The Biomed Online Learning programme is managed by a consortium of NHS Trusts, Pathology Joint Ventures, Public Health England and the University of Greenwich.

For further Information please contact the Biomed Admin Manager:

Science - Biosciences

Bioscience in essence is the use of science to explain human physiology and disease and to use the knowledge of science to develop treatments. It is the application of science rather than the study of things for their own sake.

Bioscience degrees are a result of the ever advancing needs of specialist knowledge as new scientific breakthroughs are made. They are partly a product of this specialisation and partly a response to students interested in human-focused study.

Investigative journalism is at a crossroads in theory and practice. Crises of ethics and funding have brought profound changes to the nature of long form journalism, the ways in which it is produced and the institutions that invest in it. This innovative MA brings together leading practitioners and institutions to deliver advanced training in emergent investigative newsgathering and publishing skills applicable to a range of professional contexts, within and beyond journalism. At the same time, the degree introduces students to critical accounts of the the media's watchdog function and journalism's evolving social role.

In partnership with the Centre of Investigative Journalism (which provides bespoke training workshops for the degree's core courses) and Google (which has provided funding assistance for scholarships), this MA addresses new challenges whilst also reflecting the constants that underpin investigative journalism ethics and storytelling. Above all, it presents an opportunity to both study and do investigative journalism, under the guidance of award-winning journalists and experienced academics.

(‘Corpora’ is the plural of ‘corpus’.) You will learn how to design, analyse, and exploit corpora in language teaching, dictionary writing, and translation for English or any other language.

You will be given freedom and flexibility to tailor the course content to your needs and research interests as we offer a unique selection of general and specialized elective modules from which to choose. Our teaching staff will provide you with support and guidance in selecting the most suitable combination for your research topic.

Semester I will focus on developing general linguistic knowledge and research skills, which you will be able to apply to your chosen area of expertise in Semester II. You will learn about words, meanings, and linguistic creativity, broaden your knowledge of grammar, and acquire basic research and professional skills. You will also have an opportunity to learn the essentials of computer programming by attending our elective module in Python.

Semester II will introduce you to corpus linguistic methods and their application to three areas of research: language teaching, lexicography, and translation. You will start planning your dissertation and engage in one-on-one consultations with your supervisor.
