Programme information

The MA is not limited to but covers three main areas:

Using ‘The Good Hearts Model’ students will have the opportunity to learn about animation and how it is used in the therapeutic, educational process, and applied to a topic of the student’s choice.

Auto-therapeutic Animation provides a platform for personal expression, communication and self-exploration. Students will have the possibility to produce a personal short film based on a personal issue or cause, developing a process and film that empowers them or others by giving voice to their concerns.

Assistive Animation technology, students will identify a pertinent issue in the wider social arena producing a publicly mediated outcome, allowing students to explore how animation, design and its processes can be used in an assistive way for services or impactful visual purpose e.g. educational apps, websites, health campaigns, exhibitions etc.
