The Digital Asset and Media Management MA at King's College London takes a comparative and interdisciplinary approach, allowing you to explore and critically assess competing theories and practices from across new media digital management, archival, and information science.
This will provide you with a well-rounded understanding of the requirements across many domains. In recent years there has been an explosion in the volume, complexity and range of digital content in a variety of media.
This has been called the big data revolution and is closely connected to the increasing interest in the digital economy as an engine of growth.
- We draw on a wide range of expertise, offering insights into curatorial and archival practices of dealing with digital assets as well as into technologies and wider socio-economic questions such as rights and project management.
- The course tutors offer unrivalled expertise in technologies and processes that allow the quick and efficient storage, retrieval and reuse of digital assets. They come from a diverse and highly interdisciplinary background, having run digital archives or worked in the digital industries in the past.
- Through the optional internship module students can have direct access to some of the world’s most important culture and media institutions.
- Close links and regular speakers from the content sector give students insights and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the subject area.
There is an increasing demand for professionals with digital asset and media management expertise. Our MA responds to this demand for digitally literate professionals to work in the educational and heritage institutions as well as the publishing, broadcast, and creative content industries.
The skills and knowledge that you will develop over the course of our MA will make you valuable to all institutions concerned with the effective management of their information and media assets, for example, museums and galleries, archives, media organisations, publishing houses, government and industry and healthcare and law firms.
