Course content

**Please note that new student recruitment to this course has been suspended for the September 2020 intake. Applications for 2021 should be made from October 2020.**

In today's rapidly evolving creative and cultural industries, there is a growing need for talented producers who can apply their ideas and skills across existing and emerging platforms, and technologies to produce new kinds of experience design.

The MA Creative Producing degree will develop your creative leadership potential. You will become equipped to work at the crossover between creative practice and emerging technologies, managing multiple platforms and interdisciplinary teams.

As part of a dynamic partnership with Bristol's Watershed, the course is hosted by the Pervasive Media Studio and UWE Bristol's Digital Cultures Research Centre. You will realise your potential as a creative producer in this unique research and development space where artists, engineers, academics and designers work together to develop innovation.

Industry-ready skills

The course provides an immersion into the world of creative innovation. It is the UK's only Masters course focusing on the use of digital technologies at the interface of physical design and traditional art forms.

You will develop vital practical skills such as bidding, pitching, project management, and social media management. There is also significant emphasis on the key personal development aspects of becoming a producer: collaboration, talent development, ideas development, imagination, resilience, judgement and risk management.

Real-world experience

Industry experience is a key component of the course, and we will support you in working alongside experienced producers on live projects. You will work directly with experimental technologies, have placements in some of Bristol's most exciting cultural organisations and companies, and build a portfolio of your own work. You will take the role of lead producer on one of your own projects by the end of the degree.

Flexible, accessible learning

The course will be delivered with an equal split between practical and analytic learning with the option to study part-time or full-time.

The teaching schedule features a minimal amount of set classroom time, a number of intensive workshop sessions and a high degree of self directed study. Together with online support, it is designed with the flexibility to integrate around working life.
