The MA Creative Media is an innovative and a cutting edge masters programme at the University of Brighton, responsive to the fast changing and dynamic media and digital industries and economies. The course provides students with conceptual, theoretical and applied knowledge suited to flexible skills development and application across a diverse range of sectors and professions including the creative media industries, arts, education and academia.

Students on the course will be able to critique and participate in media debates and practice through theory and key concepts. They will also develop their ability to deploy relevant cultural, social, theoretical, professional and practice-based frameworks that allow them to operate critically and successfully in creative and global media contexts and economies.

The MA Creative Media is distinctive in that it:

*offers flexible modes of study, through online distance or campus learning, full-time or part-time, with entry points in September and February
*gives students the option to complete the MA entirely through online distance learning
*allows students to choose multiple routes of study through the course with opportunities to specialise in a number of different areas
*combines creative media theory and practice to develop theoretical and professional skills with real world application
*provides cutting edge research-led teaching by subject experts
*attracts international students from a range of academic and professional backgrounds across the arts, humanities and creative media industries
*provides training for doctoral research

Who is the MA Creative Media designed for?

The MA Creative Media has broad relevance to students, mid-career professionals, those pursuing a new or developing interest in digital and creative media, and others hoping to add to an existing skill set of academic or practical knowledge. The course combines the digital fabric of learning with academic and applied interrogation of an extensive range of media-related developments in economy, society and culture.

The flexible modes of study (online, campus, full-time, part-time) combined with students' own choice of route through the course, makes the MA Creative Media particularly attractive to the following types of applicants:

Academics, teachers and educators

Those already working, or seeking to work, in education (at all levels), or those wishing to pursue an academic career, can further their media subject knowledge and expertise, with the option of proceeding on to doctoral study at the end of the Creative Media MA. Students can start the course directly from their undergraduate studies, or join after a few years outside of formal education. Many of the students on the Creative Media MA have come back into formal education following a period of time away. Through masters study at Brighton, they can reflect upon their existing educational and professional practices, and further their subject knowledge. The part-time and online distance mode of study is particularly suitable for students combining MA study with existing work commitments.

Creative media practitioners and professionals

Media professionals and practitioners from the digital media and creative industries, arts, broadcasting, policy and journalism can develop their theoretical and professional skills on the Creative Media MA, as a way of enhancing their career development. Students learn about a diverse range of disciplinary and professional paradigms, and how to write for different platforms, whilst critically reflecting upon their own professional practices. The part-time and online distance mode of study is particularly suitable for students combining masters study with existing work commitments.

Creative media managers and innovators

Those seeking to pursue a leading role in a cultural and creative organisation or independent creative businesses will gain strategic, conceptual and creative thinking, and entrepreneurial skills as well as a critical understanding of the nature of cultural industries and creative organisations which will advance your understanding of how to operate efficiently within the creative media sector. As an MA student you will have the opportunity to independently manage a creative media project or focusing on developing a business out of an existing creative media practice, whilst also reflecting on the process itself. The programme’s incorporation of cutting-edge scholarship within the realm of multi platform media and the digital economies will appeal to those with strong visions of the creative industries in the 21st century.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Master of Arts Creative Media at the University of Brighton.

Course detail

- Description -

Our Digital Asset & Media Management MA takes a comparative and interdisciplinary approach, allowing you to explore and critically assess competing theories and practices from across new media digital management, archival, and information science. This will provide you with a well-rounded understanding of the requirements across many domains. In recent years there has been an explosion in the volume, complexity and range of digital content in a variety of media. This has been called the big data revolution and is closely connected to the increasing interest in the digital economy as an engine of growth.

There are very few institutions of any size that do not create and depend on the management, reuse and curation of digital media and information. Government, the public sector, Higher Education, cultural and creative industries and business all make and use these assets every day. This makes the skills we will give you increasingly attractive to employers. As well as developing the practical skills you need to manage digital media assets, you will also develop your critical and reflective capacities and increase your understanding of the interdependence between digital processes, technology, society and curatorial practice. This will enable you to enter into a technologically complex and fast-moving digital world of work.

Reasons you should consider the MA in Digital Asset and Media Management:

- Broadcast and publishing industries are increasingly using digital media in new ways, on new technological platforms such as tablets and mobile.
- Archives and libraries are increasingly depending on born digital materials and cultural heritage organisations are digitizing and making available digital materials relating to our history and culture.
- Businesses rely on digital media and content to develop, run and manage their future prosperity, leading to a big data revolution.
- Research managers and data scientists work with large volumes of digital data, running experiments, simulations and visualisations.
- Employers are looking for skilled professionals with knowledge and expertise in managing their valuable digital media assets.

- Course purpose -

The programme will prepare students for work or research in an economy and society which increasingly recognises the value of digital media and digital assets in general. Managing these and understanding how to exploit them within a complex digital information environment presents significant challenges for organisations. As a consequence there is an increasing demand for professionals with digital asset and media management expertise. The MA responds to this demand for digitally literate professionals to work in the educational and heritage institutions as well as the publishing, broadcast, and creative content industries. The programme aims to equip students with a range of strategic, technical and practical skills to provide direction and leadership in these areas.

- Course format and assessment -

Lectures on theoretical topics; demonstrations; practical classes and exercises.
The programme consists of a mixture of compulsory and optional modules (including an internship module), and a compulsory dissertation.
Modules are assessed by coursework and/or examination.

[Career prospects]]

All institutions concerned with the effective management of their information and media assets, for example, museums and galleries; archives; media organisations; publishing houses; government and industry; healthcare and law firms.

The School of Media, Art and Design is delighted to offer a new MA by Research with a range of exciting specialisms. As a postgraduate MA student enrolled on this programme you will join a department with over thirty years of experience delivering excellent teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange, and award-winning professional practice. You will join a vibrant community of researchers and practitioners and play a role in contributing to the culture of research and practice-based research that exists within the department.

Visit the website: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/courses/postgraduate/media-art-and-design-by-research.aspx

Course detail

The MA by Research in Media, Art and Design provides the opportunity to undertake a supervised programme of independent study and practice in a structured and supportive environment. The programme may be undertaken either full time over one year, or part time over two years.

Suitability

This MA by Research is open to anyone who can satisfy the entry requirements. Individuals who would like to develop their research skills to a higher standard, whether they are using traditional research methods or practice-based research approaches, are particularly encouraged to apply. The MA by Research is offered both full-time and part-time, and given the emphasis placed on independent research, the course is well suited to graduates looking to continue their educational journey in a flexible fashion. The MA by Research is also a proven, and important developmental stepping-stone towards doctoral study.

Content

The MA by Research in Media, Art and Design is not a taught MA, and therefore there are no modules offered. Instead, the individual defines their own set of research questions in conversation with their supervisory team. The range of subjects available for students to research is necessarily constrained by the range of specialisms offered by the supervisors within the School. Areas of specialism include:

• Animation
• Applied Art
• Cultural Studies
• Digital Media
• Film
• Fine Art
• Graphic Design
• Journalism
• Media and Communications
• Media Studies
• Photography
• Radio
• Television
• Web Design

Format

Students are supported principally through regular tutorials from a specialist supervisor. All supervisors are members of staff within the School of Media, Art and Design who have significant research experience and have been granted supervisor status by the Graduate School. A supervisor will help the student adopting the traditional research mode to frame the research topic and provide ongoing guidance about carrying out secondary and primary research and writing up the findings.

A supervisor will help the student adopting the practice ­based mode to devise and produce their project and to set it within a critical framework. Face­to­face supervisions will take place on a regular basis during term time, and supplemented by telephone, email and Skype guidance as needed. The schedule of supervisions will be agreed by negotiation between the supervisor and the student. Tutorials can be scheduled around a student’s other commitments and meaningful distance learning can be facilitated. Work­in­progress is reviewed by a panel of supervisors half way through the registration period. Following advice from this review students complete their theses or projects.

One of the few fixed commitments is the integral research seminar programme, which MA by Research students are required to attend, typically one afternoon each fortnight through October - June. The seminar programme is built around the department’s own research seminar series and is designed to integrate the student body by addressing issues of common interest, such as aesthetics, genre, form etc. Some seminar presentations will be tutor-led, others student-led. Every Masters student will be expected to deliver a research paper during the seminar programme. Students choosing the practice ­based mode will be expected to present work-in-progress for group critique.

Students choosing the practice­based mode will have access to the department’s extensive range of specialist equipment, which they will be able to book, and to its specialist facilities at times that they are not in use for taught classes.

Assessment

The MA by Research in Media, Art and Design is offered via two modes:

A traditional research mode that consists of supervised academic study culminating in the submission of a thesis of 25,000­-30,000 words.

A practice­based mode that consists of supervised work on a body of creative practice that culminates in the submission of a project or portfolio equivalent to 20,000-25,000 words, together with a reflective analysis of no less than 5,000 words and no more than 10,000. The combined word count equivalent for a practice-based submission should not exceed 25,000-30,000 words.

The MA by Research is assessed using the Graduate School’s validated doctoral framework, which means that MA by Research students produce a single thesis (whether written or comprising both practice-based and written elements) that will be submitted at the end of their study. The thesis will then be examined both internally and externally and four possible outcomes will be achieved: Pass, Pass with Minor Corrections, Pass with Major Corrections, and Fail.

What can I do next?

The programme leads to a significant qualification in its own right but could also fast­track successful applicants to MPhil and ultimately to PhD qualifications.

The skills and specialist period knowledge developed during the programme provide additional grounding for careers in media, art and design.
