E63 Bachelor of Science (Digital Media)


The rapidly increasing number of industries and organisations investing in new media require graduates skilled in, and knowledgeable about, the production of digital content. This course provides students with learning experiences that enhance the advantages that new media technology offers for the integration of skills in computing, communications, design and visual production within a digital environment. The course will prepare graduates for careers in digital content development and special effects, web development and publishing, project management, digital image production, industrial research and development. Practical experience in the digital industries is provided through an internship or project development for an industry-based client. Graduates will be ideally placed to enter either new media industries or freelance work because they will have a strong background in content development and project management.



Standard University admission requirements apply.



The course is available by full-time or part-time study on Joondalup campus.



The Bachelor of Science (Digital Media) degree is a 24 unit, three year full-time award which may be studied in part-time mode. The course consists of a fixed program of units offered by both the School of Communications and Multimedia and Computer and Information Science.
