Digital Media Design (Online Distance Learning) (MSc)

Course Description

Programme description

This innovative programme offers the best of studio-based design learning in an online context.

You will work together, and with colleagues located on campus in Edinburgh, to realise imaginative design outcomes and acquire wide skills in digital visual and audio techniques.

You will investigate practice contexts for application across the arts, entertainment, performance and industry. You will also probe the social, cultural and commercial implications of such developments.

The programme addresses the needs of practitioners, managers, decision-makers and educators who want to be informed by first-hand knowledge of the technical possibilities of digital technology and an awareness of social, cultural and business contexts.

Online learning

Teaching is through a combination of streamed/podcasted lectures, online seminars/tutorials and virtual studio activities.

Projects bring out original thinking and independent achievement within a framework of independent study, virtual team-working and creative ability.

You will also engage closely, though from a distance, with colleagues following our highly successful established programmes in Design and Digital Media and Sound Design.

Some courses may offer opportunities to study for specific periods in Edinburgh.

Career opportunities

The prospects for employment are diverse. Recent graduates from the closely allied on-campus programme in Design and Digital Media are now working in multimedia and web design for architectural and urban design practices, advertising, computer system design and management, and tertiary level teaching. The programme is also ideal if you are considering continuing on to advanced research at a doctoral level.

Entry Requirements

Normally a 2:1 honours degree or its international equivalent. The subject discipline is not as important as aptitude and commitment to study in this area. Equivalent experience may be considered as alternative fulfilment of part or all of the requirement in individual cases, especially in the context of CPD study.
