    Course Summary

    An MSc in Creative Computing from the University of Arts London is a good way to learn the masters level skills in computer science you’ll need to really make your career in the creative arts take off.

    You’ll learn about machine intelligence, physical computing and other technical aspects at the same time as you explore creative avenues like advanced visualisation. You’ll gain exceptional skill in coding – in both JavaScript and Python – as well as learning to use OpenFrameworks and the Unity framework model.

    Beyond theory and data science, you’ll learn some very sought-after skills. These include:

    • Skill in giving creative direction to coders
    • The ability to turn creative direction into actual code
    • Technical fluency with a wide range of computing techniques and technologies
    • The ability to research and teach about technical issues
    • The ability to engage with technology and creative practice alike on a critical level
    • The ability to apply cultural solutions to technical issues

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
