Ravensbourne College MA Postgraduate Studies Programme

Networked Media Environments


The MA in Networked Media Environments at Ravensbourne College's 
Postgraduate Studies programme offers itself as an opportunity for 
students  to engage with the latest developments in online publishing.
The 
one-year full time MA course delivers a balanced course structure 
consisting of practical work, technical studies and contemporary studies

and is aimed at making you become a creator of interactive and networked

applications on a wealth of platforms, including internet, mobiles and 
interactive television.

The MA programme has subscribed to an Open Source College policy 
which means that the use of open source software and licences is 
encouraged whenever possible. The NME has created the Networked 
Learning Lab, a unique facility where students can create experimental 
applications in a Linux environment. Technical teaching introduces you to

key concepts behind the internet and networked information architectures,

before it progresses, according to your individual abilities, deeper into

programming and creative application development. 

Latest networked tools such as wikis and web-logs are not only subject of

study but are deeply integrated into the teaching and learning 
environment. You will have free webspace for your own web-pages, you 
can write your own web-log and use the wiki as a sketchboard and for 
group collaborations. You will also participate in the creation of the
Mazine 
Online http://mazine.ws, a student led online magazine and Mazine, its 
printed equivalent.

The MA core staff team brings together artistic, technical, theoretical
and 
economic competency, as well as a working knowledge of current industry 
practice and contact networks. The team  works focusedly to deliver the 
course with a student centred approach which means that your learning 
experience is being put at the heart of the attention. You will be 
masterminding your own Learning Plan, which contains your research 
strategies and your own evaluation of your progress through the year. 

The NME is looking for students with a wide variety of backgrounds, from

journalists, photographers and film makers who want to move into online 
publishing to people with artistic and social aspirations who want to use

the internet more effectively as an environment for communication and 
collaboration. With its emphasis on creation for and within networks the

NME is a unique course in the higher education landscape in the UK. No 
other place offers such a cutting edge environment for a year of
learning, 
experimenting and innovating in the networked domain.
