    Programme Description

    Design for Digital Media involves developing viable approaches for integrating the wide spectrum of currently available digital media into coherent, user accessible and engaging artefacts. The increasing embodiment of content in digital formats has expanded the possibilities for user interaction, placing greater relevance on understanding the various levels of design involved in its creation. Therefore, the need for an academic context to explore strategies to produce digital media artefacts with competence and thoughtfulness has become a necessity.

    This course is particularly designed for graduates and professionals with relevant experience who wish to both develop their expertise in the theory and practice of digital media whilst understanding the implications for communication and cultural change.

    The following elements underpin the success of this course:

    * conceptual research / development
    * design problem solving
    * content creation processes
    * interaction philosophy / methodology
    * creative / multi-sensory experimentation
    * team work / project management
    * knowledge / cultural network solutions
    * major project / industrial study

    The course can be studied in either full-time (2 consecutive days a week University attendance) or part-time (1 day a week) mode to accommodate part-time employment requirements or employer day-release staff development schemes. MA Design for Digital Media requires that you critically engage with issues and concepts surrounding new media practices in conjunction with creative practical experimentation. In doing so, you will experience a dynamic exchange between academic inquiry and technological practice gaining you an expanded portfolio of confident and original approaches for this industry.

    The course can be studied full-time for one year or part-time for two years.
