University of Birmingham launches MA in Digital Media & Creative Industries
The University of Birmingham has launched a new MA in Digital Media & Creative Industries.
For creative students interested in developing their career, this new course provides the opportunity to enhance their professional skills and become a multifaceted expert in the creative sector.
Collaborating with practitioners working in industry, students will work across disciplinary boundaries to develop a rounded knowledge in areas such as arts and cultural policy, and the legal, administrative, and management strands of the creative industries.
Professor Dan Moore, Head of English, Drama and Creative Studies says: “We’re very excited to launch this program which builds on the success of our two innovative undergraduate programs in Digital Media: BA Digital Media and Communications, and BA English Literature Digital Media and Communications. The idea is to create leaders in the creative industries while allowing them to build on their passions. Students will collaborate with experienced creative practitioners working in industry – including working on live briefs – providing them with first-hand experience of how creative organisations operate and enabling them to gain practical insights into essential areas such as law, marketing, and freelancing.”
Some of the main benefits of studying this course at Birmingham are:
- Students will collaborate with prestigious organisations, providing insights that extend far beyond the classroom.
- The program is designed to embrace knowledge from diverse subject areas so students will benefit from interdisciplinary expertise.
- Students will prepare for their career by engaging with experienced creative practitioners and gaining practical insights into essential areas such as law, marketing, and freelancing. They will undertake a practice-based project, working directly with the University’s cultural partners on live briefs – thereby transforming classroom knowledge into real-world expertise.
- Students will be able to immerse themselves in the University’s vibrant campus and the bustling city of Birmingham’s rich cultural scene, including historic theatres, the country's oldest working cinema, and Europe's largest regional library.
Taught over one year full-time or two years part-time, on completion of the program, students will possess a diverse set of transferable and industry specific skills, including digital content creation, project management, data analytics, and critical thinking. They will be adept at navigating the digital landscape and will be well-prepared to adapt to new technologies and trends.
