Digital Media Arts MA

Digital Media Arts MA is taught both at the University of Brighton and at Lighthouse. Education and professional development has always been a key part of Lighthouse's work. On this MA, through short technology labs and courses we help empower the digital artists and creative engineers of tomorrow.

Students studying on the MA come from a range of creative backgrounds. During the course they develop and extend their digital production skills, and explore a wide range of creative digital practices, accessing and assessing critical debates, through a combination of project work and continuous critical and theoretical study.

The MA provides excellent training for artists and arts professionals wishing to seek a career in the creative industries, offering expert education in the areas of interaction design, social media, programming, digital film, installation, public art and interactive art. You will learn core digital media production skills, explore a broad range of creative digital practices, and access the most up-to-date developments and critical debates in the discipline.

Live project work is encouraged so that students gain direct experience and develop valuable links within digital media and wider cultural industries. Students are invited to attend Lighthouse’s year–round programme of events and exhibitions where they can develop a broad appreciation of digital art and culture and become part of the wider social fabric of Lighthouse – often becoming involved in our programmes and activities themselves.

The course offers a suitable route and an appropriate academic grounding for PhD study, as has been evidenced by student progression on to PhD programs at the University of Sussex, Goldsmiths and the University of Auckland in New Zealand. The course is accredited by and run in partnership with the University of Brighton.
