M.Sc Creative Computing

Overview 

MSc Creative Computing aims to develop high-value postgraduates that can enhance the output and trajectory of any digital agency. You'll be taught the key skills needed to conduct creative research, shape a product to 'market ready' stage, and collaborate productively with practitioners within unfamiliar fields.

This is a flexible course that responds to your practice - whether you're a game designer, software developer, animator, web technologist or more besides. You'll undertake modules designed to enhance your understanding of the creative industries and digital creativity more widely, yet on your own terms, with an emphasis on deploying your own creative and technological skills in new, rewarding contexts.

MSc Creative Computing helps you become a well-rounded and capable creative technologist with the capacity to generate original ideas, evaluate their sociocultural and commercial impact, prototype, and then identify the most effective routes to market. Throughout the process, you'll be supported by a team of talented artists and developers who each have significant experience in the field of creative computing in both research and industry settings.

Course Structure 

Hackspace
Hackspace takes an experimental approach. You'll develop demonstrable proof-of-concept artifacts that target a selection of creative tools and technologies. 

Research Methods
Gain essential knowledge of project scoping, objective setting, data collection and analysis methods, and effective documentation.

Creative Leadership
Learn how to lead teams to shape original social enterprise or commercial ideas for the marketplace. You'll work with members of the Creative Computing subject team to project manage and support undergraduate students who are negotiating an in-house creative incubator.

Digital Storytelling
Interrogate the intersection of storytelling and digital creativity. You'll collaborate with Creative Computing and Publishing students to create artifacts that inform, persuade or entertain.

Devised Project
A practice-led research investigation in the field of Creative Computing. Here you have the opportunity to refine your creative and technological skills, apply research and development skills, and importantly, create something that nobody has created before.

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
