|Media and Communications|
The discipline of Media and Communications provides students with a
sophisticated understanding of the history, scope and socio-cultural impact
of new media technologies, and of the debates that have accompanied their
development and use. It focuses, in addition, on computer-based multimedia
and Australian media industries in relation to globalisation.
Students are equipped with a thorough knowledge of the rapidly changing
fields media and communication. This grounding enables them to interpret,
create and apply the products of new media not only in the context of the
mass information and entertainment industries (television, publishing,
film) but also in a variety of other public and private sectors such as
education, on-the-job training and specialised information services.
