MA Media Communications and Critical Practice


Course Description

Introduction

Explore contemporary media and communications alongside the cultural and creative industries. With work-placed learning included as an integral part of this course, you have the chance to develop your knowledge in situ - previous students have applied their skills within major London institutions from Tate Modern and The British Council to Film London and the BBC.

Content

This unique Masters programme explores contemporary media and communications alongside the cultural and creative industries. Work-place learning forms an integral part of this programme and previous students have gained placements at London institutions such as the Tate Modern, Arts Catalyst, The British Council, Film London and the BBC. Alumni have gone on to work for BBC factual programming, the British Council, branding consultancies, and to PhD study.

The boundaries between different media are blurring as everything moves towards convergence. This new course, with its emphasis on transforming media and cultural practices, offers a broad approach that spans different sectors.

The course has been designed for postgraduate students considering a career in the media, culture or media arts industries, or those who want to work in research and education in these areas. You will be introduced to a dynamic mix of theoretical and critical approaches to the media, including the history and development of media and culture in different contexts.

You will learn about how content is produced and consumed in the new multi-platform and digitalised media environment. In addition you will gain practical experience and benefit from a programme of visiting lecturers, many of them industry professionals with first-hand experience of working in different areas of the media. During the course you will visit galleries, exhibitions and other cultural events.
