Course content

The Production pathway of the Digital Media MA is designed to provide students with a theoretical knowledge of digital media and the practical skills to apply that knowledge to future developments in digital arts, practice and future research.

The Digital Media MA at the UCL Institute of Education is one of the longest-established Media MAs in the UK. It is based at the UCL Knowledge Lab, a leading interdisciplinary centre whose mission is to understand and develop digital technologies to support and transform education and beyond. Based on research evidence, the Knowledge Lab devises new pedagogies, designs and implements innovative digital media and smart technologies for teaching and learning, and informs policymakers and educational stakeholders.

The programme team belongs to the DARE research centre, a research collaboration with the British Film Institute. With a track record of funded research in the digital media arts, we offer students a chance to learn from direct research experience.

Students will have access to our Future Media studio with computer suites, a performance space and sound recording facilities.
