Date: 19 December 2019
London Metropolitan University will be offering ten new postgraduate programmes to provide expert training and education for career paths as varied as criminology, timber technology and documentary film production. The new programmes are designed with the needs of London’s industry and economy in mind, in keeping with the University’s institutional focus on the employability of its students.
Spanning diverse subject areas including arts, technology, engineering, psychology and social sciences, the new courses will open for applications in January 2020.
New titles in the field of technology and engineering include Cryptography (MSc), Timber Technology (MSc) and Robotics and the Internet of Things (MSc). For students with an interest in the business side of technology, the new Technology Entrepreneurship (MSc) has been devised in collaboration with the University’s acclaimed business incubator, Accelerator.
Future arts and creative professionals will have the option to study Documentary Film Production (MA), which builds on the success of the undergraduate film courses available, or an extended Master of Fine Arts (MFA) portfolio which will include Ceramics, Painting and Printmaking, and Visual Communication options in Graphic Design or Illustration.
London Met’s psychology provision will also be expanded, with new courses in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MSc) and Criminology and Psychopathology (MSc).
Finally, two new two-year MSci pathways with integrated Graduate Diplomas will open postgraduate Business Management and Social Science and Humanities opportunities to students from a wider variety of academic backgrounds.
The new courses build on London Met’s programme development, which has seen over 60 new titles introduced in the past year, including new areas such as Artificial Intelligence and Robotics; a wider range of courses available with foundation years, to widen access to higher education from diverse backgrounds; and ‘top-up’ provision for students moving to London Met from other institutions.
Michael Upton, Head of Academic Portfolio said: “London Met has always put the career prospects of its students at the forefront. In devising these new courses, we are demonstrating our unique commitment to understanding, and responding to, the present and future needs of the City, its people and its employers.”
