Media Arts & Cultures

The Department of Art & Media offers internationally acclaimed and ambitious taught courses and research opportunities. Throughout the course of our MA we had a lot of time to experiment, proto-type and try out ideas that we had and it was through this period of experimentation that I began to explore ideas of how to use Social Media in relation to theatrical performance.

Instructors are training students for jobs in animation, illustration, photography, film, TV, video and radio production, web design, visual art and design, virtual technologies, music and digital sound technology, computer graphics, gaming and electronic publishing.

Given the ever-changing mediascape and the rich history of media over the past 150 years, Cinema and Media Studies takes a broad and inclusive view of the field, addressing non-commercial as well as commercial media, examining products and artifacts in and out of the cultural mainstream, and studying media across a broad range of national, transnational and global frameworks.

In addition to a strong theoretical impetus in the Reading Concepts of Intermediality course (i.e. both classical and contemporary culture and media theory) you will also take courses with links to intermedial practice, such as Crossmedial Exhibitions.

Media art productions: Projects may include films, high-profile multi-part or single television and radio programs (documentaries and dramatic narratives); experimental, animated, transmedia, or interactive work; performance programs; arts-related segments for use within an existing series; apps for mobile or tablets (projects must be developed and made available for both iOS and Android devices); multi-part webisodes; installations; and video games.
