The Digital Media - Production from University College London (UCL) is designed to provide students with a theoretical knowledge of digital media and the practical skills to apply that knowledge to future developments in digital arts, practice and future research.


Students in this Digital Media - Production programme from University College London (UCL) will learn histories and theories of digital production in the media arts. 

They will follow this with experience of studio-based design work in digital animation and digital games, based in the new Future Media Studio at the UCL Knowledge Lab. 

The degree is designed to provide students with theoretical and practical engagement with a rapidly changing digital landscape.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits: two compulsory modules, two optional modules, and a studio-based practical Dissertation project.

The degree includes two compulsory modules in the theory and practice of digital design (30 credits each); two design optional modules (30 credits each); and a practice-based Dissertation (60 credits).

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MA in Digital Media: Production.


This pathway will equip students to progress to a broad range of careers in the media, including the creative industries, the museums, libraries and galleries sector, and media education. It does not provide professional training of the kind the industry itself offers; but rather an experience of advanced production in different media forms.


Students will acquire skills in digital design and use of industry standard design software, particularly in the areas of 3D animation and digital games. They will also acquire theoretical, critical and analytical skills in relation to these media.
