Course content

Research profile

This programme is for students who have a background in digital media, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, interaction design, composition, architecture and art or design practice, and wish to extend their study through a series of practical, research-led projects.

Students work in collaborative contexts to develop skills in conceptualising and implementing creative projects that make extensive use of digital technologies.

The compulsory element of the course is Digital Studio Practice, which is supported by postgraduate research methods training and a series of optional, lecture-based courses, reading courses and a final dissertation.

On completion of the degree graduates will be able to contribute knowledgeably and critically to practice-led research that involves advanced technologies. The programme provides an opportunity for you to test your aptitude for PhD study in the area.

Programme Structure

The core of the course is Digital Studio Practice (40 credits in semester 2), supported by Postgraduate Research Methods (P00487 in semester 1) and a series of optional lecture-based courses, reading courses and a final dissertation. The MSc in Digital Studio Practice also provides an opportunity for students to test their aptitude and interest for PhD study in the area.

Training and support

All of our research students benefit from ECA’s interdisciplinary approach and all are assigned two research supervisors. Your second supervisor may be from another discipline within ECA, or from somewhere else within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences or elsewhere within the University, according to the expertise required. On occasion more than two supervisors will be assigned, particularly where the degree brings together multiple disciplines.
