MA/MSc Computing and Creative Industry allows you to build your own postgraduate degree from units across our postgraduate courses at UAL Creative Computing Institute.


MA/MSc Computing and Creative Industry (Modular) represents an exciting opportunity to study with the CCI’s world renowned creative computing academics across a range of specialisms unique to the CCI. The course is a modular programme that enables you to study units from across the Creative Computing Institute (CCI) post graduate courses in a combination that suits you. For example, units available with this course come from MSc Creative Computing, MSc Data Science and the Creative Industries and MA Internet Equalities. This means you are able select that specific areas of study that interest you and tailor your post graduate experience at the CCI to support your career aspirations. 

The title of this award reflects that the three core areas of Creativity, Computing and Industry are available to you to choose to study within the units on offer and we codify these as:

  • Creativity: How to ideate, develop concepts into prototypes, work with creative research methods and apply critical cultural understanding.
  • Computing: Skills in creative computing platforms and coding languages and the critical discourse of computing and society.
  • Industry: Applied creative computing in contexts, creative management and leadership, enterprise and employability.

With the ability to select units of study across this range you are able to take account of your individual level technical ability, desire for critical engagement and your intended graduate path. 

Further benefits of the course include; the ability to study with a range of peers on different CCI courses, access to dedicated CCI specialist course facilities and technical staff, access to a broad range of CCI academic across specialist subject areas. Students on this course will also join a vibrant leaning community where creative technology, discourse and practice are shared in our CCI online communities giving access to CCI research staff, technical support and our vibrant open events programme some of which you can see on our youTube channel at
