The Master of Media and Creative Technologies (MMCT) allows you to choose from one of the three subjects available: Creative Practices, Creative Technologies and Screen and Media Studies, offered under the School of Arts and School of Social Sciences. Each area offers you the opportunity to blend artistic and technical forms in new combinations.
Alongside taught papers, you will work on a year-long supervised programme where you will develop a major work (or works) that serves as the flagship of your graduate portfolio of creative works.
