Course Introduction

This unique course builds on our long tradition of teaching interdisciplinary media practice, working across moving image, photography and interactive media. Our approach combines the creative exploration of art school traditions with academic and professional excellence. We have industry'level facilities and equipment, and use a variety of assessment methods, including practical projects, presentations, written work, research tasks and portfolios; around two thirds of assessments are practical.

Course Modules

During your first year you will study core modules covering four key areas – an introduction to contemporary media practice, developing contemporary media practice, an introduction to contemporary media theory, and media representations – as well as a media explorations option module with strands covering interactive media, film or photography. In Year 2, core modules focus on media frontiers, convergent media, live projects (curating, commissions and work experience), critical perspectives on media, and research and synthesis. You will also choose an option module from transmedia practices, scriptwriting for media, art/science collaboration, and creative encounters. In your final year, the core modules are your major project, exploration and pre'production, and professional launchpad. You will also either complete a dissertation, or an extended research essay with an additional option module from across the School/University.
