What will I learn
Our main study themes are:
- Media and Communication: Introduces you to the meaning, importance and use of a number of fundamental concepts within the broad fields of media analysis and production to understand how meaning within media objects has been produced, consumed and interpreted. These may include: institution, identity, contexts of production, audience, narrative and genre, critical refection. The meaning and significance of these concepts will be explored through a range of methods, including case studies, seminar discussions and individual exercises illustrating their development, conventional use and potential limitations.
- Creative and Critical Digital Practice: Develops the core skills and knowledge necessary to effectively produce, distribute and analyse a range of digital media. You will examine how people, ideas and content flow through digital environments and use this knowledge to develop a range of digital media artefacts. You will experiment with different forms of multimedia content, including digital video, sound, web and other forms. We’ll examine the development of the digital media landscape and how it has challenged traditional notions of production and consumption, considering the implications of ‘digital’ mediation on areas such as identity, authorship and representation.
- Digital Storytelling and Media Design: Investigates the effects of immersive forms of digital media on storytelling by exploring areas such as augmented reality, pervasive and immersive media, locative media and interactive storytelling. Covering the transition from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0, the semantic web, the mobile web to the Internet of Things, you will think about the way that networked culture has enabled new forms of storytelling and media design. You will also develop practical skills in using a range of open source software tools, programming platforms and devices.
