Digital Media and Communication Major | 2017
The internet revolution has brought to life a new ecology of networked digital media, radically changing the way we work, play, and communicate. The Digital Media and Communication area of study uses an innovative blend of teaching methods to ensure that graduates have the necessary communication competencies to navigate and take the lead in the ongoing digital media revolution.
Compulsory subjects provide students with an understanding of the core cultural and technological dynamics of contemporary digital media. These subjects offer a framework of practical competencies to operate successfully as a professional communicator in a global media environment.
Elective subjects allow students to develop digital media skills and understanding in important applied contexts such as Journalism, Political Communication, and Media Arts.
Students will be equipped with critical awareness and practical skills suited to a wide range of employment opportunities in the traditional and new media industries.
