This programme is aimed at developing future project leaders, producers, storytellers and experience-designers in virtual-reality, augmented-reality and mixed-reality media. The programme recognises established media practices in entertainment, healthcare, design and engineering, education and training, and remote collaboration, and encourages experimentation in emerging forms and contexts.
Enquiry, innovation and enterprise are the fundamental building-blocks of this programme. Through both conceptual investigation and practical production, you will explore and develop immersive media in a range of hypothetical and real-world scenarios. Creative collaboration and enterprise-led teamwork will be essential in becoming thought-, practice- and business-leaders in this emerging field.
You will explore both conventional and experimental narrative concepts; investigate the implementation and value of media in society; develop production craft skills including stereoscopic 360-degree video and immersive audio production; and learn how to work in and manage creative teams; working in industry-leading facilities with internationally-recognised lecturers and practitioners.
The programme does not cover computer-based asset creation or programming, for which you may consider BSc (hons) Virtual and Augmented Reality; BA (Hons) Computer Animation Art and Design, BA (Hons) Computer Animation Technical Arts, BA (Hons) Visual Effects or BSc Hons Game Design.
Optional units will allow you to specialise or broaden your studies to match your career ambitions and professional placement opportunities will allow you to forge vital industry links.
