The MA addresses the management of digital assets, an increasingly important area not just in public institutions such as libraries, archives and museums but also in the wider content industry such as publishing or social media. DAM consists of tasks and decisions surrounding ingesting, annotating, cataloguing, storage and retrieval of digital assets, such as text, video, audio and image files
- For our teaching, we draw on a wide range of expertise, offering insights into curatorial and archival practices of dealing with digital assets as well as into technologies and wider socio-economic questions such as rights and project management.
- The tutors offer unrivalled expertise in technologies and processes that allow the quick and efficient storage, retrieval and reuse of digital assets. They come from a diverse and highly interdisciplinary background, having run digital archives or worked in the digital industries in the past.
- Through the internship programme students can have direct access to some of the world's most important culture and media institutions.
- Close links and regular speakers from the content sector give students insights and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the subject area.
