Our different approach to literary media means that this course raises conceptual questions about how we define literature and culture and what ideological issues are raised by doing so. Read more

Our different approach to literary media means that this course raises conceptual questions about how we define literature and culture and what ideological issues are raised by doing so. It gives you a chance to consider how a literary canon can be created or contested, and explores what value judgements are made in the process. Notions of censorship, conformity, transgression and innovation are explored alongside a theoretical consideration of the material and institutional contexts in which culture is produced. 

The course enables you to combine the skills of literary analysis developed during an undergraduate degree with a series of new theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of English in a range of different media. It invites you to explore the proposition that literature exists in a number of different forms, from film to print fiction, and from the internet to television. In other words, the course de-privileges the idea of the printed text and considers it alongside the kinds of narrative that exist in other media.

Our team includes leading national and international scholars in the fields of modern and contemporary literature, media studies, cultural studies and new media writing. In addition, the Faculty of Media & Communication has a number of practising media professionals whose experience of working within the media industries complements the academic expertise of our researchers. This combination of academic rigour with professional practice is ideally suited to helping you develop transferable skills during your Master’s degree.

The Faculty of Media and Communication has extensive experience in the research and teaching of corporate communication and public relations, having been one of the first UK universities to launch undergraduate studies in PR in the late 1980s. This course draws on the expertise of academics who are engaged in leading-edge research and consultancy work, and you will benefit from studying in a department with an excellent reputation within the industry, as well as strong links with both the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA).

This course offers you the opportunity to specialise in a variety of areas of communication management, whilst developing insights into the latest techniques used in communication research, planning and evaluation. A professional ‘Boot Camp’, with the collaboration of public relations and communication agencies and relevant professional associations, will offer you the opportunity to be embedded within agencies or in-house communication departments for up to two weeks, typically in London. By the end of the challenge, you will be able to draw on real-world experience and will be able to start to develop your professional career, capitalise on networking opportunities and evaluating and planning your own career trajectories.

The MA Creative Media Arts. Data and Innovation is designed to respond directly to your needs as someone with the ambition to build a career in one of the growth sectors in the UK. Read more

The MA Creative Media Arts: Data and Innovation is designed to respond directly to your needs as someone with the ambition to build a career in one of the growth sectors in the UK: the creative and cultural industries. The course delivers a unique combination of media art and design methodologies alongside basic management and business analytics, to help you build a successful career or venture within this dynamic sector. The curriculum has been developed in response to important research findings, demonstrating that growth in the wider economy is being driven by a creative sector founded on a fusion between digital technologies, creative practice and the wider arts and humanities. It's what we call the “fusion hypothesis”. Drawing extensively on this concept we have developed a programme that brings the cultures of art, technology and enterprise into new and generative combinations. 

With its emphasis on focused innovation and rapid prototyping the course is unusual in combining a critical media arts perspective with a deep understanding and engagement with the business-led dynamics of the creative industries.

The course is delivered in the context of Bournemouth University’s world renowned Faculty of Media & Communication, known for its contacts at the heart of the media industry. The programme has been developed and lead by leading practitioners from media art contributing business-led research and development insights from the design sector aimed at developing advanced enterprise and creative projects. The image at the top of this page was taken at the Museo Jumex in Mexico City and features work entitled Squidsoup by Liam Birtles, one of the senior lecturers on this course, just one example of the international reach our team has in this field.

Studying this Master’s degree is an ideal next step for applicants from both creative media and the arts and humanities, including areas such as graphic design, visual communications, fine art, performance, audio and sound, and theatre and media production, as well as those from interdisciplinary non-creative backgrounds, such as computer science, geography and engineering, who can demonstrate interest through a creative portfolio or other work experience.

You may have an undergraduate qualification in a related subject or may be able to show your suitability for this programme of study through associated work-experience or evidence of and outputs from other related activities.
