Creative Production in a Local Context (APME301)
The focus of this module is developing a full understanding of the complexities of working with outside agencies in relation to applied media. It will allow students to use their individual knowledge, skills and media practices in collaboration with others to create enterprising media product(s). The media product(s) will be created in response to an identified complex employer or voluntary sector problem. Underpinning this module is the role of the media in 're-presenting' reality.
The dissertation module will give students an opportunity to appreciate the uncertainty and limits to knowledge within a range of concepts, theories and analytical methods that underpin the academic study of the visual media and photographic arts. This module will allow students to utilise their understanding of this theoretical context in a systematic, critical investigation of an appropriate topic for sustained research and study.
Specialist Production (Project) (APME302)
Students will work independently to develop a Specialist Project based on research ideas negotiated with the tutor. This module supports the exploration of creative interests in combination with the acquisition of technical skills supported by academic study of areas related to applied practice for instance audience studies. This module includes exhibition/competition submission and/or another form of public display, and evaluation.
Professional Practice (APME304)
This module aims to allow students to reflect critically upon their skills, knowledge and confidence to progress within professional life. They will focus on the relationship between aspirations and the complexities of the media industry, generating specific enterprising material that enhances employment possibilities. Students will synthesise their research and reflection to formulate a personal development strategy which allows evaluative reflection.
