Course summary

The Education pathway of the Digital Media MA 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. In the digital age, the ability to understand and work creatively with digital media in all these forms is a key issue. Students 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.

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.

Employability

This route will equip students with skills, knowledge and understanding of media education and media literacy in the digital age. They will acquire practical skills in the reading and making of digital texts and artefacts in various forms. They will learn a range of methods in educational research, including ethnographic practice and qualitative analysis.
