Master Media Design and Communication
Our programme allows you to move flexibly and fluently across the rapidly expanding field of hybrid media practices: from software art, e-publishing, to a variety of lens-based practices for both new and traditional platforms. All elements of the course support your independent projects, providing skills that facilitate self-directed research.
The central elements of the course are:
- Free and open source software development
- Participatory media practices
- Film & video editing skills
- Practice-based thematic projects that focus on a particular aspect of the contemporary media ecology
- Research methodologies which helps you position your own work within the current context
- Archiving, recording and presenting your work
All these elements provide tools to differentiate your work in an increasingly complex and competitive field. Students of the Media Design & Communication programme come from a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and cultures, and their work encompasses a range of approaches to creating an individual media language: developing skills to create ambitious individual and group projects. Within this context the Master programme provides opportunities for specialisation in: Networked Media and Lens Based Media.
