Introduction & Rationale
The purpose of the course is to develop and apply appropriate research, production and presentational skills used in a team working environment. The methodologies and experience represent a significant development of skills transferable to many areas of employment and research practice. Independent learning supported by practical skills attained in taught courses in year 2 is an integral part of this course.
To test students' ability to define and organise a small group project which may be based in any area of the School's work and may be presented in one of the form of: a video documentary, a photographic visual essay, a magazine or a website design.

UOG Brief History - The university traces its roots to 1890, when Britain's second polytechnic was opened near the Thames at Woolwich to teach practical and commercial skills to London workers. An innovator from the start, the polytechnic pioneered the country's first part-time day-release and sandwich courses. Over the years a range of specialist organisations have joined the institution, giving it diverse strengths in subjects such as teacher training, architecture, engineering and history. The name Thames Polytechnic was adopted in 1970. They became the University Of Greenwich when they were awarded university status in 1992.
This programme has been designed to introduce students to critical engagement with media which involves studying the relationship between theory and practice. An appreciation of, and ability to deal with, complex intellectual frameworks of analysis, whether they be related to texts, institutions or broader political economies, is seen as central to informing media practice.
Once established, this relationship will serve to enhance the student's ability to participate in the programme's key strands: critical theory, visual culture and new media technologies.
