Electronic media is a fast-growing area with tremendous potential to create compelling graphics, to design for tablets and smartphones, and to develop high-impact web pages. Our Masters course gives you freedom to experiment, using one or more digital media as the main tool. You will negotiate the precise content of the course with your tutors.
During the course you will build on your existing proficiency with software for any of the following purposes: web design, multimedia, graphics, print-based design, typography or 3D modelling.
Our Design Centre is fully equipped with state-of-the-art design tools and software such as the latest releases of Adobe Creative Suite. Our technical team are on hand to offer support as you make the most of the tools and software.
At Masters level, the specialisms of tutors are an important factor. Our Department offers a wide range of research expertise, including new media art, typography and printmaking. We also host the International Research Centre for Calligraphy (IRCC) which promotes and supports the development of calligraphy both nationally and internationally.
This part-time course offers the same opportunities as our full-time Interactive Media and Graphics MA. It is spread over two years, which allows you to combine it with flexible paid work and other commitments.
If you would like a more general Design course please see MA Design Studies.
