In this degree, you will develop your creative portfolio through an applied research approach to your coursework and assessment.
You will build on your existing collaborative audiovisual production skills and experience, and will explore contemporary media practices through the creation of innovative digital storytelling projects.
Students learn from industry mentors and guests, undertake internships with industry leaders, and develop their craft and expertise through applied research projects that position them as emerging leaders in the field themselves.
This degree operates in ’blended’ mode to allow for greater flexibility. This consists of a mix of face-to-face lectures and tutorials combined with e-learning. You will have access to state-of-the-art RMIT equipment and facilities in a purpose-designed building in the heart of vibrant Melbourne.
Assessments are written and project-based, and include work undertaken individually and in groups. Assessment is undertaken on a continual basis and will include scripts, reports, blogs, presentations, videos, podcasts, websites, research projects, and other practical assignments.
Internships form part of the learning experience and will help you develop connections to the industry while you study. There are no end-of-year examinations.
Your teachers have extensive industry and academic experience which will provide you with a valuable insight into industry and current practice.
All subjects are delivered in English.
You will have access to Canvas and other online and digital resources through the student portal.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
