About Digital Media at University of Huddersfield

Digital media represents an embedded set of practices within the creative and cultural industries and looks set to evolve and expand in innovative ways in the future. Digital Media covers a broad range and may include: digital visualisations in animation, photography, motion design, visual effects, online advertising, digital curation and editing.

Our MA in Digital Media offers continuing or recent graduates from creative art and design subjects with an opportunity to enhance their knowledge, creative skills and employment prospects. We encourage our students to explore the growth potential of digital media platforms and processes with the development of innovative and imaginative concepts and ideas. The course guides you in your development of core specialist themes that may be commercial and/or artist led. You may wish to expand your skills of data visualisation, app and motion design, animation, photographic practices, digital curation/editing, visual effects (VFX) or user experience design (UXD). Our practice-led modules facilitate opportunities for you to produce high quality portfolios often underpinned by industry focused trends and competition briefs.

The expectation is that you will be seeking to enter the cultural and creative industries into roles such as animators, data visualisers, editors/curators of digital content, motion designers, photographers, animators, editors, visual effects artists and user experience designers (UX). You may also be seeking to develop proposals for further postgraduate research.
