This M.Sc. course provides a foundation in the technologies and media relevant to the digital media sector. The course runs full-time over a twelve-month period. Formal teaching is divided into two twelve-week semesters.
Each student selects and commences a research project, which must be submitted in the form of a dissertation of 12,000 words by mid March. Students will also complete a final project, which can be a collaborative development with a number of students from the class . There is significant emphasis on theory rather than on media or software applications. A special laboratory is provided for the class where students can become familiar with software applications.
This course has been co-funded under the National Development Plan (Graduate Skills Conversion Programme) for EU fee paying students.
