Digital Media Arts

The course allows students to gain practical experience and knowledge of the ways that a range of contemporary digital media are produced and used, both alone and in combination. Working in one or more specialisms which can include video, kinetics, animation, games, photography, social and interactive media, students are encouraged to experiment with combinations of media through digital 'sketches' and then, through developing more extended works informed by their individual interests, to pursue a substantial, practical enquiry into an original creative application of digital media in a major project.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have an Honours degree (2.2 or above) or equivalent professional experience in a digital media area or a strong interest in one or more areas of digital media combined with an Honours degree (2.2 or above) in an unrelated area. Accreditation of professional experience may be possible for practitioners without a 1st degree. With your application, please supply a link to an online portfolio of digital media work. Your portfolio should show evidence of creativity and innovation in 1 or more of the subject areas covered by this course. While we will take your technical skills into account, we are particularly interested in your vision and ambition for what digital media might be. We also require a personal statement. A minimum IELTS score of 6.5 overall with at least 5.5 in any component (or equivalent) is required for those whose 1st language is not English.

Modules include: creative economies; major study; media discourses; practice 1 (media); practice 2 (media); research and enquiry.
