Course content

The MA in Digital Asset and Media Management (DAMM) programme explores the opportunities and challenges that organisations face as they attempt to develop effective strategies to manage every-increasing amounts of data in the form of digital assets.

Because the management of digital assets has become a critical concern for organisations operating across nonprofit and for-profits sectors, this programme is playing a critical role in preparing students for DAMM and DAMM related careers.

Combining theoretical and practical components, the programme is designed to link important theoretical ideas with industry-focused case studies and practical group projects. The MA DAMM team recently welcomed world leading DAM expert Theresa Regli to the DAMM team, a move designed to ensure that our students are industry-ready on completion of this programme.

Key Benefits

  • We draw on a wide range of expertise, offering insights into curatorial and archival practices associated with digital asset management across industry sectors, encompassing nonprofits (e.g. libraries, orchestras, museums) and for-profits (e.g. broadcasting corporations, gaming companies, commercial archives, social media).
  • The programme is designed to encourage students to critically explore interesting questions into the nature of digital technology and socio-economic questions such as rights and project management.
  • The course tutors offer unrivalled expertise in technologies and processes that allow the quick and efficient storage, retrieval and reuse of digital assets throughout their lifecycle. Tutors come from a diverse and highly interdisciplinary background, having managed digital archives in the nonprofit heritage sector or, for example, worked on large digital projects in the gaming, film, or broadcasting sectors.
  • Through the optional internship module, students can have direct access to some of the world’s most important culture and media institutions.
  • Close links and regular speakers from the content sector give students unique insights and up-to- the-minute knowledge of new trends in DAMM and related areas of research/work.
