It engages with some of the most exciting and pressing cultural and social issues of our time, such as activism, big data, the cultural and creative economy, everyday life, future cities, social wellbeing and identity.
It covers key theoretical debates in media and cultural studies and draws from local, national and global contexts to help you develop the critical and methodological skills that are necessary for researching the role of digital technologies in culture and society.
You will be taught by leading academics in visual communication, social media, smart technologies and media production for social change. Our knowledge-exchange activities engage us with diverse businesses, communities and policy actors including media, publishers, digital companies, community groups and NGOs, which will allow you to make professional contacts during your studies.
The Digital Media, Culture and Society MA offered by University of Brighton has a broader syllabus and is particularly suitable for mid-career professionals who would benefit from flexible modes of study. The Digital Media Arts MA has more of a focus on media technology, with many graduates now working in digital development and design.
Creative media is both a description of what we do and an instruction for future practice. We take the best elements of media education, creative industries, literacy theory, and communication and media studies and offer students a suite of modules that can be customised to fit career goals, family and working patterns, and personal interests.
