Course content

This programme closely follows the established campus based MA publishing degrees. All modules are newly designed to be delivered online using interactive features of the virtual learning environment, Moodle.

The 10-week 10-unit modules are delivered by a variety of media including video, audio, written materials and supplied text books, designed to accommodate a range of learning styles and personal circumstances.

Your study is supported by a tutor responsible for a small number of other students who together make up a study group. Further academic guidance comes from the Programme Lead. Assessment is through reports, discussion submissions, essays and independent research topics.
