Art & Technology

The Masters Degree in Art and Technology is a 12 month graduate programme that fuses emergent media, computer science, electronic music and digital art. Through its strong emphasis on practice, the programme explores the impact that technological advances and art have had across cultural disciplines. Students develop critical skills in practice, production, research and theory.

Key Fact
This course is designed to give a breadth of experience in audio and visual art and technologies to expand and develop their personal arts practice. It also enables artists to continue as artist-researchers in practice-based research should they wish to pursue further studies
