  • WHY STUDY THIS PROGRAMME?

    Digital media production offers a dynamic, exciting and fast-evolving field of opportunities that requires creative, entrepreneurial, technically knowledgeable and professionally ready graduates. Like the term ‘digital media’ itself, the course covers a broad spectrum of production work and activities, including content creation for entertainment, information, communications and marketing, as well as a variety of delivery mechanisms including broadcast, online, and mobile. The BA/BSc (Hons) model allows you the choice of two exit awards. The BA (Hons) focuses on digital media production (i.e. content creation, development and management); while the BSc (Hons) focuses on technical operations (i.e. creative craft skills in digital media).
