Course content

Combine theoretical and practical approaches to digital media. Taught by some of the most influential researchers in the field today. You’ll develop the skills, knowledge and expertise to produce excellent research-led work.

This course looks at digital media within the contexts of media and cultural studies. We draw from across the disciplines of sociology, politics, philosophy, art and design, and informatics.

You’ll gain experience of designing and developing digital media products. You’ll also learn about:

  • the history of digital media
  • the key concepts shaping current thinking about digital media
  • the intellectual debates in digital culture, digital humanities and computational media.

We offer exceptional opportunities for graduate study. We have state-of-the-art digital production facilities and links to the thriving creative and media scene in Brighton. The MA is associated with the renowned Sussex Humanities Lab.
