MSc Media Arts and Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College, University of Dundee


Applications are now being sought for this interdisciplinary and forward-looking course.

Several strands of study are available: all are dedicated to producing challenging and creative skilled practitioners. Masterclasses, an international lecture programme, collaborative work and dialogue form the basis for production and reflection. Each strand benefits from the involvement of renowned artists, practitioners and experts.

Electronic Imaging
This programme brings together research into technology, ideas, culture and creativity. Digital film, interactive artworks, curation and online productions are some of the outcomes.

The first decade of the 21st century sees the convergence of dance and the moving image manifested in many different forms and contexts, from single screen video dance works to pop promos, documentation to feature films, live performance with technology and net dance. All require a critical and technical understanding of and experience in both dance and the media arts.

Animation and Visualisation
Over three semesters a varied, yet complementary, series of modules cover areas of professional practice ranging from the application of contemporary technologies to production and post-production. The Programme offers the opportunity for animators to develop their skills in 2D traditional and 3D computer animation through the execution of their own projects.

3D Computer Animation
The MSc in 3D Computer Animation enables students to develop advanced skills, knowledge and understanding within the field and is designed to prepare graduates as highly skilled professionals in the Animation, Computing, Visual Effects, Interactive and Visualisation industries.
