Three new MA Digital Media programmes

Birkbeck’s Department of Film, Media and Cultural Studies is excited to announce the launch of three new MA Digital Media programmes. The programmes will commence in the Autumn term and are accepting applications now. The three MA Digital Media programmes provide multiple options for students seeking practice-based digital skills, academic exploration of key issues in digital culture, or a combination of academic and practice-based study. The programmes build on well over a decade of world class Birkbeck teaching in the areas of web design, digital management, and media studies and digital theory.

  • The MA Digital Media Design concentrates on industry-standard design techniques, introducing you to core development tools and how to use them. You will develop skills in coding, visual design and image manipulation, and an appreciation of user experience through research.
  • The MA Digital Media Management is one of the only UK MA-level degrees to focus on the management issues relating to the development, organisation and marketing of digital media projects. By the end of the course you will have built connections with companies and industry networks, and have developed a significant project-based portfolio.
  • The MA Digital Media Culture introduces you to the key intellectual debates, discussions and texts shaping the field of digital culture and media theory. This academically-oriented programme provides the conceptual framework required to analyse and comprehend the digital environments of today and tomorrow. It is one of the only MA degrees in the UK to combine academic rigour and scholarly consideration with the opportunity for hands-on training in digital media design and management.
