Throughout the Media Arts component of the Bachelor of Media Arts / Bachelor of Science (Computer Science), you will utilise world-class facilities, workshops and equipment to produce and share your work.
The degree features five disciplinary studio areas, from which you will choose at least two.
In the animation studio, you will develop skills and knowledge in contemporary animation practice. By exploring a range of traditional and 3D animation processes, techniques, and concepts, you will acquire skills and understandings applicable in a wide variety of media arts practices.
In the visual effects studio, you will explore the contemporary potentials of compositing. Combine live action and CG elements to create engaging composites and sequences, exploring new possibilities for media arts practice in a critically-engaged studio context.
In the sound studio, you will create media artworks utilising sound-based techniques and processes. Working in studio and acoustic environments, you will develop skills and knowledge to help you create sound-based media art projects for the gallery, as well as virtual and public spaces.
In the moving image studio, you will explore contemporary approaches to video art, short film, audio-visual composition and installation. You will develop understandings and skills in a variety of creative contexts for moving image practice including gallery, screen, virtual and public spaces.
In the 3D visualisation studio, you will delve into the computer-generated world and explore a variety of methods used to generate virtual environments. Through live, hands-on experiences, you will use key technologies such as virtual reality systems to develop a suite of design practices and skills that will enable you to contribute to a growing digital industry.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to broaden your skills and knowledge by selecting from a wide range of elective courses from across our art, design and media programs.
In the Computer Science component of the Bachelor of Media Arts / Bachelor of Science (Computer Science), you will explore the core principles and technologies that make up the entire range of computer-based systems. You will learn about the principles underlying computer hardware, algorithms, operating systems, networks, databases, graphics and artificial intelligence, and the practice of building these systems.
