Subject

Creative arts and design

BA Digital Arts is for students seeking to develop a portfolio of distinctive artistic work that will prepare them for professional careers across the contemporary creative economy.

You will learn to apply artistic approaches to; screen-based image and interaction, animation and motion graphics, sound production, physical interface design, and creative computer coding. You will develop creative production skills, learning to apply different strategies to achieve your objectives, and learn how to work to creative briefs and deadlines.

You will work inventively with creative software and hardware, and learn to use professional video and audio equipment in an arts context. You will also have access to workshops and studios, with equipment such as 3D printers, laser cutters and electronic prototype kits, alongside more traditional fabrication tools.
You will be encouraged to find your own voice as a digital artist, and to reflect critically on the quality of your work and the work of others. You will also consider your work in the context of relevant discourses, such as the impact of technology on today’s society, and think about how that can be reflected in artwork using new materials such as data and networked information.

You will consider how to display and exhibit digital artwork, with many opportunities to show your work in public. The course ends with an exhibition of your work in a graduation show to which employers and professional creative practitioners are invited.

**Facilities**

BA Digital Arts is taught at the university's Stockwell Street building, featuring state-of-the-art studios, production workshops, and teaching spaces. Facilities are supported by expert studio technicians and include a fully equipped fabrication space, sound, animation, and film studios.

The Stockwell Street site is home to the internationally renowned Stephen Lawrence Gallery in which you'll have opportunities to show your work. You will also use Digital Arts lab spaces in the historic Old Royal Naval College.

Digital Arts students have access to a wide range of software, hardware, video and audio equipment, and you'll be taught to use it by highly experienced staff who are at the forefront of research and practice in digital art.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Only a small number of students study courses sitting under this broad subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at the stats. Teaching, advertising and the creative arts were the most common industries for these graduates, but it's a good idea to attend open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from a specific course and what previous graduates typically go on to do.
