Description

How can designers, managers, entrepreneurs and scholars keep pace with the rapidly changing field of digital media and web design? Is it possible to learn skills, approaches and methods that facilitate both current production and the anticipation of future developments in digital media? The MA Digital Media Design provides both the technical and conceptual framework required to succeed in the digital environment of today and tomorrow.

This programme is one of the only MA degrees in the UK to combine professional development and technical skills with academic rigour and scholarly consideration. The philosophy of the programme is that the innovative design and management of digital media must go hand in hand with critical thinking about digital media.

The MA Digital Media Design concentrates on industry-standard techniques, introducing you to core development tools and how to use them. You will develop skills in coding, visual design and image manipulation, and an appreciation of user experience through research.

By the end of the course, you will have built connections with companies and industry networks and will have developed project-based portfolios that will greatly facilitate your entry into the job market.
