MA Worldbuilding with Creature Design


Leeds Arts University    Postgraduate Courses

Full time September MA 1 year full time

About the course

We are intending to bring together our MAs in Worldbuilding and Creature Design. This is in response to industry demand for pre-production specialisms and will enable us to bring together practitioners who want to create immersive worlds along with opportunities to develop creatures that can interact with imaginative, yet to be explored environments.

The course is the first of its kind in the UK. The Creature Design aspects open career opportunities in film, game and comic industries as well as work supporting scientific research, such as visualising prehistoric life or paleo reconstruction, evolution and life on other planets, known as speculative biology. The Worldbuilding aspects invites students to create richly-detailed cultural, historical and futuristic worlds for careers in the entertainment industry, production and research.
