Course summary

Creative Computing is everywhere. The collision of good ideas and technological innovation continues to enhance how we communicate, learn, play, work and live. Our growing reliance on computing tools and experiences nevertheless demands a new form of talent - people who are technical yet creative, analytical yet playful, and experimental yet business-minded.

MSc Creative Computing has been designed to respond to this growing need within the creative industries. You'll undertake modules designed to enhance your understanding and application of technology in a creative context, while gaining essential skills in creative research, interdisciplinary collaboration and enterprise.

Overview

MSc Creative Computing aims to develop high-value postgraduates that can enhance the output and trajectory of any digital agency. You'll be taught the key skills needed to conduct creative research, shape a product to 'market ready' stage, and collaborate productively with practitioners within unfamiliar fields.

This is a flexible course that responds to your practice - whether you're a game designer, software developer, animator, web technologist or more besides. You'll undertake modules designed to enhance your understanding of the creative industries and digital creativity more widely, yet on your own terms, with an emphasis on deploying your own creative and technological skills in new, rewarding contexts.

MSc Creative Computing helps you become a well-rounded and capable creative technologist with the capacity to generate original ideas, evaluate their sociocultural and commercial impact, prototype, and then identify the most effective routes to market. Throughout the process, you'll be supported by a team of talented artists and developers who each have significant experience in the field of creative computing in both research and industry settings.

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught through creative workshops, technical labs, seminars, and individual mentorship. In addition, there are opportunities to engage students studying BSc (Hons) Creative Computing as well as key players in various digital agencies and tech companies in the South West.
