Explore Emerson's Graduate Programs

Are you driven to make an impact on the world around you? Civic engagement, digital media, political discourse, data and democracy, social justice, youth participation—whatever your cause, Emerson’s Civic Media: Art and Practice (CMAP) Master of Arts program will prepare you for a life and career of improving the world through media, technology, and activism. This intensive one-year residential program, housed in Emerson’s Engagement Lab, will help you become a leader in the knowledge economy, ready to pursue a wide range of paths, including:

  • Civic engagement roles within non-profit, non-governmental, and governmental organizations
  • Community-building roles in news and media organizations
  • Leadership roles in innovation offices of municipal governments
  • Creative digital roles at foundations and corporations

From local neighborhoods to international contexts and even the developing world, no matter where you want to be, your degree will position you as an innovative leader in the burgeoning field of civic media.

Program Details

Civic Media: Art and Practice (CMAP) is a one-year intensive applied research MA program housed in Emerson’s Engagement Lab. In contrast to traditional coursework, you’ll connect with potential community stakeholders from the outset and work with those organizations as you formulate your thesis project.

The CMAP program responds to the burgeoning landscape of media and technology with a program that is applied, embedded in communities, and represents a deviation from the traditional way a graduate higher education program works. The program is design-oriented and requires the building of technologies, games, public art installations, participatory storytelling platforms, and other processes and practices that support the ambitions of the cohort.

We understand the components of CMAP as follows:

  • Civic Media are the technologies, designs, and practices that support connecting a common purpose, ranging from systematic interventions to the creative and interpretative acts that rest in the realm of art. The program focuses on the challenges of implementation: each student is confronted with the complexity of moving theory into practice, together with organizational partners.
  • Art in our program is understood as the production of creative objects, platforms, and actions that go beyond the walls of galleries and museums and relate to questions of collective good rather than, or in addition to, personal self-expression.
  • Practice is understood here as the application of student experiences in the real world. This does not mean where students will go for jobs once they are finished, but rather the application of all curricular work towards community engagement, whether local, national, or global, and non-profit, governmental, or private.

Learning Outcomes

CMAP pulls all of the core concepts and ideas of civic media into an intensive one-year program, during which students will:

  • articulate a sophisticated understanding of contemporary issues in media, communication, and technology that impact civic life
  • use a variety of participatory design and research approaches and methodologies, including human-centered design and participatory action research
  • employ the appropriate strategies to effectively communicate and work with communities
  • address, in classes and projects, the major scholarly debates regarding the interplay of new technologies, art, and civic and political life
  • discuss, write about, and design projects around the global scope of civic media and be able to situate local problems within a global context

In Demand in Today's Market

There is an increasing number of jobs in civic media within the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Students in the program gain experience working with a variety of community-based organizations and will be prepared for jobs such as:

  • Community Manager
  • Director of Civic Engagement
  • Civic Technologist
  • Civic Artist
  • Digital Strategist
  • Innovation Director
  • Civic Designer
  • New Media Catalyst
  • Communications Director
  • Community Relations Specialist
  • Corporate Social Responsibility Manager

Past graduates of CMAP currently work in various industries and organizations where they apply the skills and knowledge gained from the program, including the Obama FoundationGlobal Family Research ProjectHarvard Kennedy School, and more.

These approaches may include group discussions, problem-based learning, action learning, seminars, reflection and work and web-based learning, further enhanced through a commitment to shared learning.

Assessment is through a mixture of assignments, examinations (short answers and multiple choice), viva, portfolio and practice assessment. The practice assessment requires completion of the Practice Assessment Document that demonstrates achievement of the NMC standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nurses (2004). The NMC standards will be formatively assessed in semesters one and two, whereas in the third semester you will be summatively assessed. Learning contracts will be developed in partnership with you, your practice teacher and an identified educationalist to support the achievement of the NMC standards along with individually identified learning outcomes.

FURTHER INFORMATION

The aim of this course is to prepare and develop registered nurses and midwives to meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) professional standards for specialist community public health nurses. The course offers the opportunity to practice as a Health Visitor or School Nurse or Sexual Health Adviser.

The course will enable registered nurses and midwives to develop professional proficiency underpinned by sound, evidence based theoretical knowledge, within the practice of specialist community public health nursing. The course promotes independent, shared and autonomous learning in the development of a specialist community public health nurse who is fit for practice, purpose and award and who is equipped as a clinician, educator, manager and leader, to proactively meet changing public health care needs and the expectations and demands of individuals, groups and populations in a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic society.

The course will enable registration as a specialist community public health nurse on the third part of the Nursing and Midwifery register. The course has also been mapped to the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework to assist with career progression.

DBS CHECKS

Throughout this course you will be working with vulnerable groups of individuals including children. In order to ensure that the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing offers places on their programmes to the most suitable candidates you will all be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB). The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing will be able to guide you through this process once you have been successfully offered a conditional place at the University. It is important to note that any unsatisfactory Enhanced DBS clearance may result in the offer of your place being withdrawn even if you have already started your course.
