Students are provided with a flexible and tailored structured research programme within the Centre for Media Studies, including the development of transferable research skills, specialist knowledge and professional practices. Upon completion of this programme, students will have achieved competence in relevant areas of research, and demonstrated specialist knowledge and skills in their own area of research as well as in knowledge transfer and effective academic communication. This programme will equip them with the professional skills necessary to pursue academic and research careers.

An applicant wishing to undertake a research degree should submit a research proposal in writing, and consult with the Centre on the general suitability of the research topic and on the availability of an appropriate supervisor before submitting an application.

Closing date:
Rolling. Applications are welcomed throughout the year, for registration in September and January of each academic year.

Course Structure

A range of modules, in the form of MA in Radio and Television Production modules, research seminar presentations, conference presentations, language school participation and summer school participation will be offered. Some of these modules may not be available every year, and students will be advised by their supervisor on which modules will be the most appropriate for them, and at what stage of their studies. Appropriate modules offered by other departments/schools within MU will be regarded as Transferable Skills Modules and students will be encouraged to take any such modules that their supervisor deems helpful and appropriate.

MLitt students must take a minimum of 10 credits in taught modules (at least 5 in generic/transferable modules and at least 5 in subject specific/advanced specialist modules) from the Structured PhD programme.

A research degree in the Centre for Media Studies provides the opportunity for an academic career teaching and researching in Media Studies, Digital Media and associated disciplines. It also provides an excellent platform (depending on precise specialisation) for a career in policy development or within the varied media industries themselves.

Overview

This one year (full-time) MA advances practical, research, and writing skills while deepening creative and critical engagement with media of all kinds. The core module in Critical and Creative Media Research develops transferable research, writing, and analytical skills, while optional pathways take students through Irish media history and contemporary media archives; creative interactive computing and digital identities, and writing for screen media and screen production.
Students will be offered the flexibility to pursue traditional scholarly and practice-based research, with most modules permitting a combination of critical and creative assessment options. Electives in Digital Humanities, Sociology, Law, English, and History are available for students keen to explore the interdisciplinary character of media.

Course Structure

A single compulsory module, Critical and Creative Media Research, lays the foundation for the programme in Semester One. Students have the freedom to select individual pathways that combine critical media studies and practical work, honing creative computing, audio-visual production, and screenwriting skills. Modules in Irish Media History, Media Archives, and Identity Technologies explore media in cultural and historical context across formats and platforms, from print to celluloid to digital. The MA programme culminates with a supervised individual thesis project that may assume a variety of forms, from scholarly essay to a practice-based project, where creative outcomes are contextualised and framed theoretically. A Postgraduate Diploma is available to students who do not wish to complete a thesis.

Career Options

This programme offers practical training and transferable skill development for individuals from a variety of educational and experiential backgrounds in humanities, social sciences, and IT fields. It is designed for students who aspire to careers in creative and research-driven areas within media industries such as Marketing, TV, Film and Web Production, and user design, as well as for those who intend to pursue doctoral research in Media Studies or Digital Arts and Humanities.
