Course summary

Our MA Creative Technologies course is an opportunity to design your own project to explore, based on your area of interest within the creative technologies. The aim of this degree is to promote research and innovation in the use of creative technologies, enabling you to take the next exciting step in your career.

This course is delivered in partnership with Nottingham Trent University (NTU). Your degree will be delivered at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies (NTU's Creative Quarter Campus) and NTU's City Campus, and validated by NTU.

Who is this course designed for?

  • The course is suitable for graduates from BA or BSc courses in a related area, such as (but not limited to) music technology, film production, TV production technology, music performance, games production, games art, VFX technology production and, live and technical events.
  • It’s also suitable for professionals working within creative technologies, who aspire to senior management positions. Our part-time route will be delivered predominantly outside of core working hours, helping you balance the demands of work alongside postgraduate study.

What to expect on this course

We define creative technology to mean the creative use of digital technology, or the use of digital technology for creative purposes; creative technology can be seen as where technology meets art and design. As technology develops, the need for globally-minded and technically savvy creatives is growing.

This course is designed to enable open-minded and ambitious students to explore the boundaries of creative technology, through collaborative work. Our MA and MSc students learn alongside one another, developing your ability to engage with interrelated areas, to propose innovative and exciting solutions to problems that push the boundaries of the creative use of technology. You’ll engage with contemporary research, and, using our industry-standard facilities, develop your own in-depth research project that explores your area of interest.

The course is designed to mirror industry workflow within the creative industries. Manufacturing of products and asses through the use of creative technology follows a set series of stages: pre-production, production and post-production. Our curriculum is designed to reflect this.

You’ll study a series of inter-connected modules, designed to enhance your technical expertise, creativity, research knowledge, critical thinking and employability.

Assessment methods

Course work is based on establishing your own focused question, and then developing a project that aims at challenging conventions in the use of creative technologies. This project should be a ‘live’ project negotiated with a tutor and industry practitioner that reflects real-life, audience facing, creative technology challenges.

You will produce your own project plan, identifying how you wish to use creative technologies in developing your own practice, ultimately impacting your potential career in the creative industries.
