The subject areas include Dance, Design, Drama, Fine Art, Music, Information Technology, Performing Arts and Photography and combinations of these and other related disciplines.

Course Philosophy

We cannot know how the world will be in thirty years from now. The world we inhabit today has changed immeasurably since that of the 1970s. Technological innovations have enabled collaboration and cooperation, communication and access to knowledge, and a radical reappraisal of creativity, in a way that was not foreseen. The IOCT Masters student will be uniquely equipped for this future world, by gaining an insight into a range of methods and practices, research and development, knowledge and understanding, uniquely drawn from a number of Faculties in De Montfort University.

It is our contention that this area 'between' traditional disciplines will grow, and that the modern Masters student needs a portfolio of skills and knowledge to become employable in the future. We hope that the IOCT Masters in Creative Technologies will provide such a portfolio.
