Overview

The Graduate Diploma of Animation, Games and Interactivity (GD193) is available as an exit award of the Master of Animation, Games and Interactivity (MC232).

The Graduate Diploma of Animation, Design and Interactivity has been designed to help you build advanced knowledge in both the theoretical and technical aspects of contemporary production in animation, games and interactivity.

In this studio-based diploma, you will engage with concepts and techniques of professional productions while undertaking projects underpinned by contemporary developments in animation, games and interactivity. While acquiring these skills, you will develop an independent vision of narrative, visual and interactive media through contemporary studio forms and devices.

You will be encouraged to develop skills in life-long learning, negotiating the often complex web of professional relations in contemporary animated, games and interactive media productions.

Details

This graduate diploma uses a variety of contemporary learning and teaching approaches which may include studio practice, lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars, problem-based learning, reflective techniques, online and face-to-face presentations and discussions, group-based learning and negotiated learning for your major project.

A major component of this diploma is studio practice. You will be immersed into the field, its methods and practices through set projects and briefs. The studio format gives you the opportunity to explore concepts, techniques and modes of communication through the creation of animated linear or interactive productions. There also may be the opportunity to engage with students from other studios in a setting that encourages peer-to-peer learning through shared experience.

Blended learning options

Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.

Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.

RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional and vocational practice.

The knowledge and skills you will acquire throughout this degree and how they can be applied in your career are described in the learning outcomes.

In order to exit the Master of Animation, Games and Interactivity with the Graduate Diploma of Animation, Games and Interactivity, you will need to complete all six core subjects, to a total of 96 credit points.
