Masters in Social Media

Birmingham City University Faculty of Art, Design and Media
Campus or Online Full time Part time 1 - 3  September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham + 1 more

If recent years have shown anything, it's that social media is changing the relationship between citizens and the state, whilst enabling others to more effectively reach and engage with audiences on a commercial level. Either way, it’s clear that there are opportunities for social media professionals to make significant impacts in their rapidly growing field, innovate and shape practice. Explore How Business and Non-Profits Can Utilise Social Media: The opportunities are many. On the one hand, established businesses are seeking to co-opt the tools of social media and use them for commercial gain. Many organisations now employ teams of social media managers, bloggers and specialist digital marketing professionals; jobs that didn't exist a decade ago. On the other hand, third sector organisations are making use of these tools to build complex and conversational communication strategies for minimal cost. Both commercial and non-commercial organisations need to deepen their understanding of how social media can support their aims. Become a Social Media Expert: On the MA Social Media, at Birmingham School of Media or by distance-learning, you will explore the techniques of social media, consider the development and direction of social media as a creative industry, and will contribute new research and knowledge to the field. For students studying on-campus, Birmingham has a thriving social media scene with strong links to the course, and this scene is fast becoming an industry. It is therefore wholly appropriate that this programme should be based within Birmingham School of Media, where students will have access to a peer group and active community of social media practitioners.

Masters in Screen Studies

Birmingham City University Faculty of Art, Design and Media
Campus or Online Full time Part time 1 - 3  September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham + 1 more

MA Screen Studies plunges you deep into the latest debates around the function and importance of screen based media within a rapidly-changing media landscape. Drawing on a combination of film and television theory, the Screen Studies master’s degree at Birmingham School of Media, encourages you to actively participate in, and contribute to the development of ideas in the field and to the strong research culture of the school. This media theory geared master’s degree, available on-campus or by distance learning, gives you space to think about the ways in which audiences make sense of media, as well as the formal and aesthetic qualities of media texts, as a way into exploring your own practice or scholarly or media research interests. Convergence Culture The point of departure for MA Screen Studies is what Henry Jenkins famously described as ‘convergence culture.’ Increasingly, audiences watch television online, through mobile or tablet devices, and access movies through a range of platforms and formats, cinema being just one. The ability to make and broadcast video has begun to change the ways in which we understand the relationships between producers and consumers. Media convergence is about much more than technological change, and in this master’s degree you will explore new ways of thinking about production, distribution and consumption of screen-based media and our relationship to it. Key Facts The Screen Studies MA reflects the changing nature of the media industries and the need for postgraduate study to cross disciplinary boundaries. The master’s degree is a mix of theory and practice, determined by you. You will be actively involved in assessment design; you produce the work that you want to be assessed. The MA course is adaptable and designed to reflect your individual interests and needs. You'll be taught by a team of highly active academic researchers and media practitioners. [+]
