Course summary

This approach results in thoughtful and sustainable digital media design, research, production, and professional practice practitioners. The Digital Media BA course focuses on creative production in the field of media using digital tools in 3D modelling, code as a creative medium, immersive technologies, and audio and video production among others. The course focuses on laying a flexible foundation of skills which will prepare you for a changing digital and technological landscape.
