Course summary

Future Media is a postgraduate MA/MSc programme that does what it says:

Future is finding your future and exploiting future developments in the digital marketing and advertising industry.
Media is acquiring your digital media skill-set amongst evolving trends and emerging technologies.

The MA and MSc Future Media programme combines agency practice with industry insights and academic methods. It's been a proven pathway to success for our graduates since 2012 and is now a winning formula for the 2020s.

What's covered in the course?

Our courses ensure you gain real-world experience and knowledge so you can hit the ground running when you graduate. In your year on the programme, you’ll be planning digital marketing and advertising campaigns with digital agencies, developing brand and product promotions with clients, making mobile, social and virtual content with leading industry professionals and building new user journeys with emerging technologies and state-of-the-art resources.

You’ll tackle challenging briefs in diverse teams with industry partners to build your proficiency: MA students tend to choose broad, strategic and creative roles while MSc students often prefer tactical, planning and analytics roles. Either way, we’ll give you the tools you need to realise your ambitions.

Enhancing your employability skills

The Future Media course directly answers the industry call for “T-skilled” workers in the creative media industry, (Skillset. Strategic Skills Assessment for the Creative Media Industry London. 2009: 20). Here professional employability is defined by proficiency across disciplines and specialist expertise within them.
