Find out more about the exciting new MA in Digital Media and Creative Industries!

Our MA Digital Media and Creative Industries course combines world-leading research, practice-led teaching and unique industry connections in areas such as arts and cultural policy, and the legal, administrative, and management strands of the creative industries.

Collaborating with practitioners working in industry, you’ll work across disciplinary boundaries to develop a rounded knowledge of work in the creative sector – its policy and legal dimensions, the practicalities of managing cultural productions, and how to develop entrepreneurial and freelancing skills.

You’ll explore how cultural policy is developed, through engagement with the University’s cultural programmes, and develop an in-depth knowledge about all stakeholders in the production and consumption of digital and creative work.

If you’re a creator or producer looking to advance in the digital and creative industry then this programme is designed to enhance your professional skills, empowering you with the expertise to move forwards in your career.
