Course summary

Course overview:

MA Digital Media, taught at UCA Farnham, is a practice-based course for students who want to extend their study or improve their employability in media-related fields in the UK or internationally.

There is an increasing demand for digital content for both existing and emerging media. Content makers have to understand how to apply their creative skills and ideas across a range of platforms and media, and be adaptable to this fast-changing industry.

This course gives you the opportunity to further develop and extend your skills in this area and apply them across a range of media applications and offers you a choice of specialist areas, this might be in image making or you might choose to gain a deeper understanding of the business of media and important areas such as intellectual property rights.

You will explore digital image-making and storytelling for the rapidly changing media landscape, learn about digital marketing and social media, create your own digital material and explore the media business or post-production techniques and emerging platforms.

Our recent and current industry projects include working with the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation in Accra, and with China Central Television in Beijing. This work with industry informs our teaching and training and our approaches to the study of the contemporary media context.

The study of film, photography and animation at UCA Farnham goes back to the 1960s, and the study of journalism to 1992. Masters level study at Farnham allows you to draw on this rich tradition of media and cultural studies and, at the same time, engage with the latest contemporary debates about media futures.

On the course you’ll also have the opportunity to work alongside students of journalism, filmmaking, photography, animation, games design, communication design and music composition. This range of creative disciplines gives you a fantastic and unique scope for cross-disciplinary thinking and working.
