The University of Westminster is launching a new Interactive Media Practice MA course.

The Interactive Media Practice MA has been designed to cater to the needs of the modern creative industries. The course brings together creative technologies, interactivity and design practices, and looks at how to create mobile applications and wearable technologies.

The course consists of eight modules: Applied Innovation and Interactive Design, Mobile Apps and Wearable Devices, Entrepreneurship and Project Management for Creative Industries, Social Media and E-Marketing, Hack Lab and Creative Technologies, UX Design and Development and a final Major Project.

The course blends theory with practice, and aims to give students the skills to work in digital media industries. The course is taught by a group of industry practitioners who have a wealth of experience in the sector.

Speaking about the course, course leader Savraj Matharu said: "It’s a great practice-based MA built on industry excellence, designed for the digital information age. We have a leading international reputation and relationship with companies like Apple, Oculus and Sony Entertainment.

"We have been fortunate to receive an endorsement by Adobe Systems, who commended the MA in being leading masters within the field of interactive media, given the faculty strengths."
