About the course
Subjects in the Bachelor of Arts (Graphic Design) course include digital technology and design, desktop publishing and typology, digital design, design for industry, experimental design, advertising, and competitive design and professional practice work.
The Bachelor of Arts (Multimedia Arts) component is designed to provide a broad-based education exploring specific applications of digital technologies in the many individual media which constitute multimedia. Graduates will have a critical awareness of the medium as well as a balance between formal and technical skills and vision, and the production of innovative and creative content, effectively positioning graduates for employment in a wide range of multimedia industries.
To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 240 points in order to meet the requirements of each of the constituent degrees. Upon completion of the program, students graduate with two awards, the Bachelor of Arts (Graphic Design) and the Bachelor of Arts (Multimedia Arts), with the specialisation shown in the award name.
The Associate Degree in Multimedia Arts is an exit point only course within the double degree program.
