NB This course is closed for 2016, but you can still apply for January or September 2017

Study the legal, economic and business background to the regulation of infrastructure, content and trading relations across the digital economy globally. LLM Digital Economy will help develop your analytical tools in assessing different governance and legal claims, and develop rational and consistent argument in discourse about dilemmas in regulation of digital content, information and infrastructure. The course provides a strong emphasis on the evaluation and development of communications (infrastructure) and content (intellectual property) and information law (including social networks) practice to promote knowledge of transactional and regulatory work in the digital economy. You will study alongside students from across the globe and interact with tutors and guest speakers working at the highest level of digital economy / industry.

You will study specialist modules in the Digital Economy, as well as Information Law, Intellectual Property & Social Networks. You’ll study some modules alongside other students on our other LLM courses, which will give you a broad understanding of the context of international commerce and business which provides the essential underpinning for an understanding of the Digital Economy. In addition you’ll have the opportunity to choose optional modules in topics such as globalisation and world trade, transnational law, competition law or corporate governance.

Throughout the course you’ll develop research skills vital both to your assignments and your future career. Our teaching team consists of professionally qualified legal practitioners as well as research-active academics; in 2014, the Government acknowledged our ‘world-leading’ law research*. You can be confident you’ll receive up-to-date career advice as well as the latest legal theory and case studies.

The course develops three inter-related knowledge and skills sets. Firstly, you will critically apply legal discourse to legal dilemmas in the regulation of communications infrastructure. Secondly, students will gain skills to critically appraise how intellectual property and information is protected, and importantly how international trade structures impact on digital economy goods and services. And thirdly, students will understand governance structures, either corporate governance mechanisms or the regulation of anti-competitive practices.

Finally, the new LLM Digital Economy aims to critically evaluate the relationship between theoretical and evidence based practice. Students will be required to demonstrate skills of independent thinking through the completion of a research project. A key theme will be to develop professional skills to become the independent researchers in the digital economy who understand the complex interplay between infrastructure, content, competition and trade in digital goods and services.

The MSc in Creative Technologies and Enterprise (CTE) is designed for people who have a grounding in computing and business skills (whether through study or experience), and are seeking to develop their creative and research abilities in order to adapt to the digital economy or prepare themselves for future research in this field.

The MSc in Creative Technologies and Enterprise (CTE) is designed for people who have a grounding in computing and business skills (whether through study or experience), and are seeking to develop their creative and research abilities in order to adapt to the digital economy or prepare themselves for future research in this field. Future industries depend upon people who are equipped with creative ideas, entrepreneurial skills and technological knowledge. This course will prepare you for a rapidly-changing global digital economy in which your ability to adapt on-the-fly and make creative contributions will be your major resource.

The course has been planned with enterprise partners and offers opportunities for national and international placements throughout. It makes use of Bath Spa University’s close links with Hartham Park, with its superb digital infrastructure and many linked businesses.

The course is connected to the Integrated Master’s in Creative Technologies and Enterprise, which is a four-year programme from Bachelors level through to full Master’s. This ‘stand-alone’ Master’s has a number of features in common with that course, but also some differences, such as the expectation of prior computing and business experience, and the presence of research as a particular feature of the programme.

Underpinning your skills and knowledge will be a solid grounding in entrepreneurship, project management, software programming, and creative thinking. Through a series of creative projects you will have the opportunity to work with commercial and industrial partners to advance your understanding and experience the sector.

COURSE STRUCTURE AND CONTENT

The course will typically include national and international placements, giving you the opportunity to develop your existing skills in whatever sector of the digital and creative industries to which you may currently be committed. You will be undertaking self-devised individual or collaborative creative projects. There will be a considerable degree of autonomy associated with these projects, but they will all be the subject of prior negotiation with academic staff and industrial partners.

You will be taught research methods and undertake your own research project. Research in CTE is inherently transdisciplinary, which creates particular challenges when considering appropriate methodologies. The course will explore these fully, looking at quantitative and qualitative methods, action research and other creative methods.

You will seek to understand, through both practice and theory, the nature of both “creativity” and “innovation”. These are crucial concepts whose definition is the subject if much discussion and research. The course sets out to explore them so that you will be able to apply the knowledge that results in the professional domain. This aspect of the course is characterised by a shared sense of discovery as we work towards a full realisation.

You will encounter emerging technologies that will place you at the cutting-edge of developments in the digital economy. You will also build a solid base of research skills and methods that will provide you with the means to contribute to Research and Development or to develop your own research projects.

Course structure

The course is designed to train digital effects artists to work in industry. Our successful former students are working in London and for international companies in areas ranging from television graphics to architectural visualisation.

Industry links and employability

Creative industry workers are increasingly expected to understand the interface of intellectual property, information law and data & privacy management, and apply this knowledge. Interactive and transmedia projects often involve use of assets and creative input from across the firm – this new way of working in digital media introduces new challenges for workers used to working primarily in a single medium, or with a particular audience in mind.

Despite organisations urgently requiring professional development, there are very few credible opportunities for those working in the digital creative industries. This is pioneering executive education offering just that. We will develop future digital innovators and creative industry leaders. We aim to bridge the gap between understanding the law and understanding digital innovation. Successfully completing the programme will not only ensure you learn from the best people but it will also allow you to attach to your career the CREATe brand.

The programme is aimed principally at individuals working in the following areas
-New commercial, often digital, services that need to formalise after the start-up phase
-Large public sector initiatives involved in digitisation
-Policy organisations (government, PR, NGO).

It may also suit creative industry professionals as well as entrepreneurs in the digital creative economy.

Career prospects

This programme is ideal for those with some experience in the media or creative fields, who wish to augment their practical skills with expertise in intellectual property management. Upon successful completion of the programme, you will be well equipped to work in production and leadership roles in media organisations, or to use your acquired knowledge in the creative economy to work in policy or regulatory research and consulting roles.
