Introduction

The Digital Media: Storytelling and Production MA helps you build your knowledge and skills in digital media storytelling formats and production skills. You’ll become competent in a range of platforms and formats and then be able to specialise in an area of your choice.

You will work on media production and storytelling platforms, such as audio and video, digital publishing and online multimedia. You'll work with formats including video documentaries and podcasts, digital and print magazines, online sites, apps and social media content. If your chosen focus is to explore immersive and interactive new media technologies and more experimental, non-linear approaches to narrative and content, you’ll have the chance to create interactive video and audio pieces, utilising virtual and augmented reality.

The course is primarily practice-based. However, you’ll be able to critically explore current developments and debates in the creative industries to help evaluate and contextualise your practice within the professional environment.

This practice-focused, research-informed course is designed to help you enter or further your career in the digital media production and publishing industries. The course covers key employability skills in its core modules, building your knowledge of the creative media production sector, and the working routines of media professionals and freelancers.
