Comments about Bachelor of Media (Creative Arts) - On Campus - Bedford Park - South Australia

  • Objectives
    This course aims to provide students with a broad knowledge and appreciation of the development and current role of media especially digital media in Australia. By requiring that the study of media be combined with study of one or two areas in the Creative Arts or in Public Affairs, the course aims to equip students with a wider knowledge base which will enable them to apply the communications skills in media that they have developed to a wider area of human activity. It also aims to allow students to develop and use practical transferable skills in digital media production and to provide them with the theoretical underpinning necessary for them to understand how they can use their knowledge and skills. Since media work is almost always team work another objective of the course is to provide students with the ability to work productively in a team in a media environment. Learning outcomes At the completion of this course students are expected to: * have developed skills in the production of digital media in the Creative Arts or in Public Affairs; * be aware of a range of technical and design options contributing to high quality media presentation; * be able to discuss media theory and its practical application with a high level of competency; * demonstrate fluency in the vocabulary of Digital Media, which is necessary to gain and maintain employment in media industries or in the Creative Arts or in Public Affairs; * have developed the ability to work productively as a team member in the production of digital media; * demonstrate a high level of knowledge and understanding of a field or fields of study in the Creative Arts or Public Affairs; * have learnt the ability to apply their broader knowledge of the Creative Arts or Public Affairs to the provision of content for digital media production.
