The Creative Media MA is an innovative programme that stays responsive to key developments in contemporary digital media, culture and society.

It engages with some of the most exciting and pressing cultural and social issues of our time, such as activism, big data, the cultural and creative economy, everyday life, future cities, social wellbeing and identity.

It covers key theoretical debates in media and cultural studies and draws from local, national and global contexts to help you develop the critical and methodological skills that are necessary for researching the role of digital technologies in culture and society.

You will be taught by leading academics in visual communication, social media, smart technologies and media production for social change. Our knowledge-exchange activities engage us with diverse businesses, communities and policy actors including media, publishers, digital companies, community groups and NGOs, which will allow you to make professional contacts during your studies.

The course offers flexible modes of study through online distance or campus learning – full-time or part-time – with entry points in September and February. There are also opportunities to complete shorter programmes at both certificate and diploma level.

Course structure

The Creative Media MA is structured as follows:

Core modules:

Practising Media Research (MA and PGDip)
Professional Media Practice: Industries and Cultures (MA and PGDip)
Dissertation/Project (MA)

Options:

Big Data, Culture and Society
Collaborative Documentary Media Production*
Digital Cities
Locative Media
Social and Digital Media Activism
Sonic Media
Media Access in a Networked Society
Participatory Media Production for Social Change*
Digital Media and Web Technologies (Shared option from the Digital Media Arts MA)*
Cultural Theory (Shared option from the Cultural and Critical Theory MA)*

(*On-campus-only mode)

It is possible to complete shorter programmes in Creative Media at postgraduate certificate and postgraduate diploma level.

During your studies, you'll be granted flexibility in content, form and delivery. This flexibility is increased through the availability of online distance education modules. Not only is it possible to switch modes from on-campus to Distance Learning, you may also choose to complete the entire degree through Distance Learning.

Distance learning

Students can complete the Creative Media MA in online distance mode, either through part-time of full-time study. Distance learners follow the same weekly syllabus as on-campus students and engage online on a continuous basis with the teaching staff and their peers.

Each module has a guide that contains detailed information about the module content, readings and assessments, as well as clear instructions on how to engage with it. The University of Brighton’s student intranet system, studentcentral, is used to teach and deliver the modules.

If you are a distance learner, each module sees you: reading the module guide and collected readings to grasp the shape, content and pathway through the teaching material; participating in asynchronous online discussion boards to engage with the weekly topics; and conducting independent research and background reading to support all parts of your module study in preparation for the assessment.

Module tutors facilitate discussion and offer guidance throughout.

Provisions:

• Seminar discussions are facilitated in a number of ways to enable distance learners to participate. These include live video conferencing, online chat rooms and discussion forums.

• Masterclasses, lectures and on-campus seminars are video or audio recorded and uploaded for students to access online on studentcentral within 48 hours of the class. A range of seminars will also be streamed live online.

• All weekly readings are electronically accessible online via the studentcentral reading list.

• All assignments are submitted electronically via studentcentral (with the exception of physical artefacts, which are submitted via postal system).

• One-to-one tutorials are conducted either online either using video conferencing or via a telephone conversation.

Careers and employability

Creative media is both a description of what we do and an instruction for future practice. We take the best elements of media education, creative industries, communication/media studies and literacy theory and offer students a suite of modules that can be customised to fit career goals, family and working patterns, and personal interests.

Graduates of the MA will be able to:

• demonstrate a range of analytical, critical, collaborative practice and professional skills relevant to the digital media sector.
• understand how cultural, social and economic differences operate in mediated environments, and how they are changing with new media technologies.
• use a range of research methods and work within diverse disciplinary and professional paradigms.
