Course in detail

DAT tapeBeing placed in the vibrant digital sector of Brighton gives you a unique advantage in terms of employability and networking.


We are part of the Digital Catapult Centre Brighton, creating links between universities and business, and focusing on projects that encourage innovation and value for real-time and location-based data – known as the Internet of Place.


The university hosts the prestigious annual CINECITY Film Festival with our partners, the Duke of York’s Picture House and Screen Archive South East, a public sector moving image archive serving the South East of England, and based within media at the University of Brighton.


The MA Digital Media, Culture & Society provides cutting edge research-led teaching by subject experts. In an era of ‘big data’, our research explores how datafication impacts upon everyday life and notions of surveillance, and its contribution to future cities through intelligent/sustainable transport. We also pay attention to emerging technologies and social change, exploring locative media, science and technology, digital health, digital citizenship, policy, governance and education, with a focus upon questions of exclusion, inclusion, and identity formation. Being taught by researchers active in these areas will also prepare you for Doctoral (PhD) study.

Studying with us can be entirely in Distance Learning mode.
