About this course

Bachelor of Communication (Digital Media)

Digital media is rapidly changing technology, business, and legal landscapes. The Digital Media major will help you stay ahead in this dynamic environment, whether your goal is to be a digital disruptor/entrepreneur, digital content creator, or leading edge analyst in the world of big data.

This course lets you combine communication studies with an emphasis on digital innovation, practical skills, and industry placements and connections.

Get industry experience through internships and work placements in government departments and agencies as well as media, advertising and public relations organisations.

Our students have completed placements with Network Ten, Brisbane Festival, Hyperplex Cinemas and BBS Communications Group.

In your third year you'll investigate and engage with the local media sector, including contributing to the latest media platforms, and you'll build your professional networks.

We are a world leader in media and communication research, through our Digital Media Research Centre. If you're a high-achieving student, you may like to consider research pathways including the option to progress to a PhD.
