Learning predominantly takes place within small-class sized, project-based studio environments that encourage active participation and develop skills in key contemporary media production practices.
Studio-based learning is a distinguishing feature of the Media program at RMIT. In studios, learning emerges through the act of making – an investigative and highly creative process driven by research, exploration, experimentation, critique and reflection.
Our staff have many years and varieties of teaching and industry experience. Guest lecturers and practitioners, including industry experts and graduates from the program, contribute significantly to courses through sharing their experiences of developing diverse, successful and adaptable media careers. They also provide feedback on project work that's in progress.
You will be taught how to develop and hone your creative process across multiple media formats and platforms, including film and video, podcasts, social and interactive media, and copywriting. You'll have access to state-of-the-art technology and facilities including TV, web and virtual studios at RMIT's City Campus.
Throughout the degree, you’ll engage with broader critical analyses of the historical, theoretical and cultural contexts of various media. You’ll experiment and innovate to help shape contemporary and future media industries.
You’ll learn through a variety of teaching and learning modes, including studios, lectures, seminars, tutorials, work-integrated learning and problem-solving workshops. You will undertake individual and group work and will also be assessed through a variety of forms including presentations, exhibitions, and staff, peer and self-assessment.
Work attachments form an important part of the degree experience and will help you develop formative connections to the industry while you study.
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.
