A multimedia degree course that combines media production with critical analysis.
Why study Media Arts?
Media Arts at St Mary's offers an exciting blend of practice, theory and transferable skills. The ethos of the programme is built around the development of a creative approach to problem solving and as such it will equip students for a future in a wide range of disciplines.
Why St Mary's?
St Mary's Media Arts programme offers a level of support, and personal tuition that is unparalleled across the sector. If you study here, your lecturer will know your name and your respective strengths.
Lecturers will therefore be able to help you build upon those strengths and address your areas of weakness in order to build a comprehensive portfolio of skills and work.
At St Mary’s University you can acquire a range of media design and production skills, as well as engage in some of the most significant debates about the media today. With excellent technical resources, lecturers with professional media experience and London’s creative industries on our doorstep, we have many graduate success stories to tell.
The Media Arts team "continue to dedicate their teaching and learning to the development of a dynamic and exciting curriculum for students, reflective of contemporary professional and technical industry standards." - Alice Tuppen (External Examiner) 2014
We draw on a wealth of media experience from all over London. Scriptwriters, film directors, journalists and radio producers regularly come to give guest lectures. We also organise regular study trips to many media events in central London. In recent years, our students have visited the BBC, various news agencies, the National Film Theatre, Teddington and Pinewood Studios, Tate Modern, the British Film Institute and the Leveson Inquiry at the Royal Courts of Justice.
In recent years we have also began offering an annual field trip to Disneyland Paris for third year students.
Although much of the degree is practical, you will have the opportunity to write essays and reports, give presentations, undertake research and develop a whole range of transferable skills that are highly valued by employers: creative thinking, problem solving, project management, organisation and team-work.
