MSc in Digital Media Production
The MSc Digital Media Production will provide you with the techniques and the expertise with industry standard tools that are needed for the creation of contemporary media products. It is for students who have a first degree in a discipline other than a technically based media subject.
The course covers video and audio production, computer graphics and animation, and the making of interactive products for distribution via new media platforms, as well as the longer established media of television, video and audio. Students work on the award-winning Brookes TV, making and producing broadcasts.
You will have the opportunity to demonstrate the ability to deal with complex issues systematically and creatively, and show originality in tackling and solving problems.
The course will enhance your career prospects and will offer you the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to work in the media industry.
Teaching learning and assessment
Learning methods include lectures, directed reading, workshops, seminars, and practical and project work.
Teaching is organised on a module-credit basis, involving approximately 200 hours of student input and approximately 36 hours of staff contact, normally delivered through a weekly three-hour teaching block over a 12-week period.
Each course module is assessed individually, generally on the quality of written or design work, and to some extent on verbal presentations. Assessment methods may include essays, seminar papers, class tests, project work, design and oral presentations, workshops, simulations, and practical exercises.
Teaching and learning also draws on the diverse professional backgrounds, experience and knowledge of academics and visiting lecturers from industry.
Students graduate from the course with a broad skill set that equips them to move into a career in film and television post production, the computer games industry or live television production.
You should normally hold a first degree equivalent to at least a British lower second class bachelor’s degree in any discipline other than those very closely related to media technology. If you have relevant professional qualifications or work experience you can also be considered.
