Digital Media Studies


* Please note: this course will not be offered for 2016 entry.

The evolution of digital media devices and production tools is enabling more of us to produce media as well as consume it. Podcasting, blogging and music or video production are becoming familiar lifestyle components – bringing a demand for graduates with the skills and a critical understanding of the ways in which digital media affects our lives.

Our degree equips you with the understanding of this world in addition to developing the creative skill set to be successful in the dynamic field of digital media.


Modules include Principles of Visual Design, multimedia, art direction and animation, and Creative Leadership and Entrepreneurship. An independent study in your final year gives you the option of critical and/or more creative study.
