This course is delivered at the University of Brighton and at Lighthouse, the leading
film and digital media training and production centre located in central Brighton.

The course provides a flexible structure for the study of contemporary digital media
arts practices. It is aimed at practising artists, designers and creative producers who
have limited experience of working within a digital media arts context and who wish to
substantially develop their practice and to build on their abilities in their various fields
and occupations. They will be able to develop and explore a broad range of creative
digital practices and to access critical debates through project work and continuous
theoretical study.

Course structure
It is, at present, a part-time course delivered over two years. Attendance is required
at least one day per week at a fixed time, plus attendance at a three-hour critical
theory session per week.

Areas of study
The course supports an interdisciplinary approach to digital media arts that enables
students to utilise and develop their existing skills and experiences in an environment
that encourages both innovation and high quality production. Participants 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 digital media arts.
