About

The Digital Media - Education programme from University College London (UCL) explores education in its broadest sense: in school, beyond school, in formal and informal settings, in museums and galleries, in virtual spaces, in games, in communities on and offline, in the everyday use of digital media.

Overview

In the digital age, the ability to understand and work creatively with digital media in all these forms is a key issue.

In this Digital Media - Education students from University College London (UCL) will learn concepts of digital media, media literacy, creativity, and popular culture, and how these are used by media educators in global contexts. 

They will critically engage with, and creatively produce, media texts such as short films and blogs, working in the UCL Future Media Lab and with the British Film Institute. 

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits: two compulsory core modules, two optional modules, and a Dissertation or shorter Report.

The degree includes two compulsory modules (30 credits each); two optional modules (30 credits each); a 20,000 word Dissertation (60 credits); or a 10,000 word Report (30 credits), allowing an additional 30 credit module. Elective modules are also available from the IOE's English Education MA and Education and Technology MA subject to availability.

Careers

Graduates of this programme go on to a wide variety of careers in media education in colleges, primary and secondary schools, community settings, museums, libraries and galleries, and education-related media industries. They also work in NGOs, research organisations, and government departments. They are well-placed to follow academic careers in educational research.
