Course info

Summary

The Master of Arts in Creative Media (MACM) offers a humanities-oriented curriculum intended to complement the School of Creative Media’s mission to investigate the most significant artistic, professional, and socially relevant aspects of contemporary mediated expression. Successful applicants will join one of two streams within the degree: Curating Art and Media (CAM) or Media Cultures (MC). The distinctive area of creative media studies represented by each stream caters to diverse student interests under a curriculum structure that provides a broad and flexible academic framework.

The Streams

The Curating Art and Media Stream (CAM) aims at developing the creative, intellectual, and technological competence required of future leaders in the art and media curating sector. It emphasizes the impact of digital media on all aspects of art, with a focus on developing capabilities in using new technologies in curating, exhibiting, and communicating art. Graduates will gain a critical understanding of key issues in contemporary practice of art and media, as well as solid skills in research, curating, collection, and exhibition to become successful in their careers or further studies in research degree programmes.

The Media Cultures Stream (MC) emphasizes on the critical consideration of significant areas of media history, theory, and criticism. In keeping with the School’s mission, the curricular emphasis is in areas of digital media, but traditional media forms (e.g. film) are also addressed. This stream is intended to provide postgraduate level preparation especially for media professionals and graduates, and for applicants from other professional areas in which the role of being a media specialist is increasingly desirable or necessary.
