Course Introduction

The Information Experience Design MA programme provides its graduating students with the transferable skills to work in collaborative, interdisciplinary ways with a range of emerging practices in digital and transmedia design; the programme has a cultural and independent creative outlook, supporting practice that is not restricted by industry expectations; this is not a programme that expects to engage with students whose primary practice is limited to predictable patterns of styling information delivery nor is it designed to promote ambitions that are overtly commercially prescribed or autobiographical; projects encourage students to work closely with news and current affairs exploring political, environmental, and inclusive design agendas by engaging in areas such as: data analytics and visualisation; identity development and interpretation; exhibition and museum design.

Course Modules

Core theories and methods: seminars and presentations by staff and visiting speakers; initial curricular project work; communal assignments; presentations of their own work to each other and to tutors; students are required to choose from a series of project options which cover a range of issues and approaches, managed and critiqued by specialist tutors; individual projects (these conclude with a publication and/or other output, and form the basis for the work'in'progress shows at the end of the Autumn term).

Course Additional Entry

Students will normally have: a BA or equivalent overseas qualification, or sufficient work experience to demonstrate the appropriate intellectual, creative and personal qualities to engage with the demands of the programme; portfolio.
