We’ve been making some very exciting changes to our postgraduate offer lately, so below we’ve rounded up all our new and revised postgraduate courses in one place.
New courses //
Starting in September 2015, we are offering a range of fantastic new courses in order to meet demand and expand applicants’ options in a number of fast-evolving and developing creative industries.
We hope that there will now also be even more opportunity for undergraduate-to-postgraduate progression.
Our new postgraduate courses, subject to validation, are:
MA Animation: Students create, explore and play with both 3D digital and 2.5D analogue technologies. This course offers the chance to develop a personal practice that understands animation in multiple forms, creating innovative approaches to animation driven by critical understanding.
MA Design Management and Cultures: Students develop high-level leadership, management, communication and analytical skills for a career in the creative and cultural industries. The course combines academic study with creative and professional practice in a project-led curriculum.
MA Film (2016 entry onwards): Information available shortly
MA Games Design: Rooted in experimental practice, MA Games Design ensures that students are equipped with both the technical and critical skills that allow them to produce a broad portfolio of innovative game prototypes. Concepts of goal, challenge and obstacle are also explored through critical evaluation.
MA International Journalism (Online): A new course developed to help journalists get an international perspective on the world and the way in which global media is now accessible across traditional frontiers thanks to rapidly-evolving communications technology.
MA Television: This unique course delivers the skills needed to design and make fact-based television programming. Students learn how to translate their ideas into practical, hands-on advanced programming and also learn about pitching, budgeting, and how to establish their own production company.
Graduate Diploma in Photography: This course builds a foundation of technical skills, from analogue to the latest digital technologies, and expand your ideas through a set of course projects. Students learn to develop a strong conceptual approach and personal identity to your practice, and finish the programme with a high quality portfolio as well as the professional skills to launch your career in photography or continue in education at a higher level.
Updated courses //
Some of our other postgraduate courses have been significantly revalidated and are now offering updated content.
MA Arts and Lifestyle Journalism (revalidated MA Journalism): Students develop the advanced skills needed for a successful career in journalism, create substantial pieces of journalism on aspects of arts, culture and lifestyle, and learn from tutors with extensive professional experience of arts journalism in print, broadcast and online.
MA Graphic and Media Design (revalidated MA Graphic Design): Students establish a distinct understanding of the fields of graphic design and visual culture, as well as those that infect, destabilise and unravel it. This course invites thoughtful, critical, productive individuals interested in the effective articulation of design.
We’re also ensuring that all our Masters programmes (MAs) start in September. Courses which currently have January starts will have one final January intake in 2015, then standardised September starts will begin in September 2015.
All full-time MA courses will also move to a four-term model, with part-time MAs using a seven-term model.
We hope you enjoy exploring our new postgraduate possibilities!
