What will I learn?

Want to produce television/radio programs, create animation, develop a documentary, make a film or understand the ins and outs of video and sound production? Our Bachelor of Creative Arts (Film, Television and Radio) provides a creative environment for students interested in the artistic and professional use of media broadcast technologies. The degree has a focus on conceptualizing, designing and applying self-generated projects based upon a firm technological base and professional application.

Over the course of your degree, we encourage you to work in the studio and out in the field on your own projects, giving you a wide and varied skill set. Our students are in strong demand in the industry because of the unique combination of courses in digital sound, image and visual technologies, design, creative writing and multimedia.

After completing your first year, you can then take the opportunity to specialize in TV/Radio Broadcast, Film/Documentary, or Animation in your degree or combine disciplines within creative arts or other areas of study.
