Become a leader in strategic media production by developing your production skills and exploring the global environment.
From basic production skills to sophisticated cross-media projects and strategic thinking about media industries, this two-year program offers a variety of entry points depending on your previous qualifications and experience.
In the first year, you will be introduced to video, audio and internet media production. In the second year, you will explore complex cross-media projects and develop the sophisticated strategic and leadership skills required to be at the forefront of this evolving industry.
You will gain practical industry experience and learn about strategic planning through hands-on projects. This program has a global focus and there will be an opportunity to undertake various research projects with an international context.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
You may be eligible for advanced standing based on academic results in your previous studies or prior industry experience.

This program operates in ’blended’ mode to allow for greater flexibility. This consists of a mix of face-to-face intensives and e-learning. You will have access to state-of-the-art RMIT equipment and facilities during the on-campus intensive at the beginning of the semester. Later in the semester, students reconvene in face-to-face classrooms or continue with e-learning, depending on which mode of study they choose.
Assessments are written and project-based, and include work undertaken individually and in groups. Assessment is undertaken on a continual basis and will include essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments. There are no end-of-year examinations.
Program teachers have industry and academic experience which will provide you with a valuable insight into industry and current practice.
All programs are delivered in English.
You will have access to the Learning Hub and other online and digital resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Almost every industry has a need for media production skills, whether in social media, video/audio documentary or fiction, or at the intersection of all three. What distinguishes professional projects from amateur ones is the quality of the production.
This program will give you the skills to ensure your media productions have that professional edge.
The program has industry links with a wide range of organisations and associations including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), an internationally-recognised hub for screen media and culture.
RMIT staff have strong industry links and current professional experience in media production. We engage external experts to ensure that students are exposed to current developments in media and communication.
You will be encouraged to develop projects that exist beyond the boundaries of the university. These include student media organisations RMITV (which broadcasts on C31) and SYN Media.
As a graduate of this program you will be ready for much more than production; you will be prepared to take on strategic and leadership roles in the industry. You will be aware of new developments and be able to research and troubleshoot trends and opportunities.
You will also have the entrepreneurial and communication skills to take your personal vision to the next stage. The contemporary media environment is complex and exciting and looks for leaders that are willing and able to explore, test ideas and respond innovatively to new possibilities.
Graduates will have the skills and knowledge to work in roles such as:
- transmedia content developer
- media designer
- content manager
- media advisor
