About the course
The Master of Media and Creative Technologies is designed to enhance the creative and technical scope of media designers, performers and creators. This degree will provide you with a distinct edge in an increasingly competitive media field nationally and globally. The Master of Media and Creative Technologies (MMCT) allows you to choose from one of the four subjects available: Creative Practices, Creative Technologies, Screen and Media Studies (offered under the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences) and Māori Media and Communication (offered under the Faculty of Maori and Indigenous Studies). Each area offers you the opportunity to blend artistic and technical forms in new combinations.
Following the successful completion of the BMCT you may apply for the Master of Media and Creative Technologies (MMCT). This degree is awarded with classes of honours. The MMCT involves three semesters of full-time study, or the equivalent in part-time study. To be admitted to the MMCT, you must have completed a Bachelor of Media and Creative Technologies (or equivalent) and have achieved a satisfactory grade average – normally a B+ average or better. You also need to have appropriate supervision arranged. Candidates who have completed a BMCT with a major in Design Media with an appropriate grade point average will be eligible for entry to Creative Technologies for the MMCT. Graduates of other undergraduate degrees who have majored in a relevant subject also may be eligible to enrol in the MMCT. Admission criteria may vary so please consult the appropriate programme Graduate Adviser for their specific criteria. Admission to the MMCT requires the agreement of the Chair of School or Programme Convenor of the main subject or programme and agreement of the Dean of Arts and Social Sciences (or nominee). Notes: * Māori Media and Communication, can be taken for the MMCT, but students must enrol through the School of Māori & Pacific Development. * Design Media is not currently available for the MMCT. However, students who have majored in Design Media in their undergraduate degree may enrol in Creative Technologies for the MMCT.
