Digital Media and Communications

Digital media are everywhere! Today our social lives, our business lives and our personal identities are inseparable from the media technologies we depend on.

The internet, smart-phones and social media have changed the face of the media industries, introducing a revolution in citizen journalism and a new way to interact with broadcast media. Journalists today need to do more than write a good story – they need to take the photograph, record the interview, edit the video, lay out the blog entry AND write a good story.

Film and TV are changing fast too. New digital camera technologies change how entertainment is created, and our mobile and interactive devices change how we consume entertainment. If you study for the Bachelor of Digital Media and Communications you will be equipped for work in the evolving world of digital media.
