The School of Creative Studies and Media has a strong reputation for its synthesis of critical/theoretical work and practice, and this degree lies at the heart of its activity. You take first semester modules in creativity and research and in media theory, before embarking on the production of a substantial practice-based dissertation under the supervision of a specialist member of staff. The dissertation includes both a reflective/critical element and a portfolio, and can be undertaken in any of the practice-based disciplines taught in the School, including writing, screenwriting, performance, television and radio production, film and documentary making, digital media writing and production, and journalism. Successful applicants for this programme will have an excellent first degree in a relevant discipline or equivalent practical/industrial experience, and a demonstrated ability to work independently to bring a self-directed project to completion.

Course Content

Modules:

Media, Culture, and Creativity Theory: This module builds on one of the School of Creative Studies and Media Department’s greatest strengths, by bringing students together with other practitioners and researchers from other fields of study in a forum for a wider discourse about current research in the media and creative industries. The module will provide a systematic overview of major 20th and 21st century critical schools and theoretical approaches, which are key for an advanced understanding of how to read and analyse creative, cultural and media artefacts such as fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, film, video games and other new media texts.

Research Methods: This module equips you with an understanding and critical overview of key methodological issues associated with various types of research in the Media, Cultural and Creative Industries, in preparation for the dissertation.

MRes Humanities Dissertation: With guidance from academic staff, students following the MRes Humanities Dissertation module will be asked to choose a topic of their own, for further research. Students will be expected to produce an independently researched piece of work which will reflect the knowledge and skills acquired from the taught modules. The topic chosen may be specific to one culture or comparative.
