The MA in Creative Media Practice at Dublin Business School presents learners with a creative and critically informed environment in which to develop and consolidate their practice. The course supports imaginative, experimental and interdisciplinary enquiry through a range of media, approaches and methodologies.



In Dublin Business School, we define creative production as a practice of realising an artistic vision by putting in place the practical steps needed to deliver that vision to an audience—whether in the performing arts, literature, visual and sonic arts, or in an interdisciplinary area.  Students are encouraged both to work collaboratively and to be independent, self-directed critical thinkers.

At DBS we are committed to innovation, creativity and intellectual rigour.  This new MA in Creative Media Practice programme aims to broaden the students’ productive, conceptual, and critical faculties in their pursuit of careers as creative media professionals.  A curricular emphasis across the entire study is on context and connectivity along with a spirit of experimentation, collaboration and community. To support this, the programme offers a flexible suite of modules to allow you to build up a strong portfolio of high-quality creative work across your chosen areas of practice, and to consolidate your creative and professional identity in film, digital media, photography, writing and performance

The learner engages with a focused set of modules, tailored to individual requirements. Moving on from this the learner is provided with a broader, more detailed set of modules, including involvement in an interdisciplinary 'Collaborative Project' and a highly focused and individualised programme of professional development in a range of relevant areas within the module 'Creative Industries: Professional Practice'.

Students taking the Masters Programme gain the opportunity to complete a sustained piece of professional creative work such as a feature-length screenplay or documentary, a piece of creative writing, a multimedia product, an exhibition or a performance. A significant feature throughout is the exposure to experienced creative cross media practitioners and professionals external guest lecturers, industry mentors and DBS faculty.

With a strong emphasis on the values of design-thinking and entrepreneurship (teamwork, iteration, action-bias, and responsiveness), this MA programme prepares students for entry into the professional world with confidence to solve meaningful, complex, and challenging problems
