To provide students with the necessary critical tools to develop a real understanding of the media environment and some of its current implications.




This course allows students to undertake work-based learning in a professional setting related to their programme of study. They will engage with, and reflect upon, the experience of everyday work activities in that setting with respect to a set of learning objectives agreed between the student, supervisor and placement provider.


Students are supported in finding and employing practice-based responses to self-directed, researched study, leading to the production of outcomes for publication, exhibition or display across the range of media supervised by appropriately qualified staff. While the course builds on both practice and theory-based approaches established in the first two years of study, it also introduces students to project-based methodologies that have widespread application across the Creative Industries and, as such, provides a meaningful bridge to post degree-level practices in Media Arts and related subjects, whether encountered in the workplace or postgraduate study.

The aim of this course is to introduce the creative industries as an area of professional activity: The culture of the creative industries, working practices, the varieties of roles and professional identities, and how key companies are structured. We will research creative business models and practices, and appraise critically the economic, social, political and ethical structures within which creative businesses operate.
