Majors on offer
Through strong practical focus, you will explore the connection between music, media and environment, and learn to generate musical concepts for short film, targeted promotions, web series and interactive spaces.
Digital art has revolutionised the way art can be made, distributed and viewed. Beyond virtual and augmented reality, you will learn to create mixed reality experiences that combine virtual physical worlds, and truly push the boundaries of interactivity.
Through a collaborative and practical approach, you will explore the elements of vocal, movement and stagecraft skills and learn about contemporary theatre, theatre direction, as well as using drama for social action.
Develop your skills to write, create and publish, in a constantly changing industry. You will explore aspects of creative processes across genres including short fiction, poetry, experimental, and editing for publication.
Through studio practice, master the techniques of digital and analogue photography. You will also develop visual storytelling skills through understanding of lighting, the moving image and other experimental techniques.
Screen development and curation
This major explores the impact of culture on screen events and production. You will learn script writing skills in a range of genres and consider the cultural contexts and business models behind how they are financed, realised, and shown to audiences.
Sound plays a crucial role in creating an effect or mood on screen. In this major you will learn about the moving image and soundscape design, location recording and custom sound, across disciplines including film, television, theatre and live performance
