Manchester Metropolitan University
This MA course is a theoretical pathway which takes technical media as its object of study. Complementing the practice MA courses within the Media department of Manchester School of Art, its focus is on the theories and histories of screen, lens-based and digital media, the varied forms of creative practice that they support, and their ubiquity in contemporary culture and society. The course provides a critical and creative environment where media students, researchers, creative practitioners and professionals can conduct intensive, self-directed academic research with expert supervision. The MA is structured to support students in developing, consolidating and executing a focused and substantial independent research project; this may take the form of a dissertation, or a project combining academic writing with creative media practice. For the MFA award, this work is extended and students provide evidence of an engagement with the appropriate professional sphere. Possible directions for these projects include: research and publishing projects at academic level; creative applications of the academic canon; curation, programming, interpretation and marketing in the fields of screen, lens-based and digital media arts.
