The Bachelor in Multimedia Design gives the student the opportunity to specialise in Mass Communication, Production or Advertising. Each degree option develops a solid base of multimedia skills and knowledge, encompassing interface design, 2D animation, video production, introductory software development, web based design, digital audio and hands-on experience with real world multimedia production. This knowledge is further enhanced by majors in the chosen field of specialisation, selecting from subject areas such as Film and Television, Journalism, Communication or Advertising.
Work Experience & Internships Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree. This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.
