Build Your Own MA (BYOMA) Media Short Courses

Designed and delivered by CEMP and the Faculty of Media & Communicationl these innovative short courses are designed to meet the needs of creative and media professionals and creative educators for relevant, industry focused and flexible professional development opportunities.

The short courses are delivered by experienced academics and practitioners, and ensure their relevance by focusing content on current industry trends, developments and issues.

At the core of each short course is a two-day ‘creative retreat’ (usually Friday/Saturday in Bournemouth) where you will benefit from networking with other professionals, as well as developing your knowledge and skills in the specific area of study. To further complement the knowledge gained from the creative retreat, an additional seven weeks of online supported tuition is available, resulting in completion of a workbased assignment;
