About this course

This three-year Media Arts programme emphasises the creation of new forms of communication art enabled by computing technologies. The programme offers an inter/multidisciplinary approach to media creation that fosters individual exploration, experimentation and creative technologies practice. The word ‘media’ relates to mediums of communication; while ‘art’ emphasises the use of these mediums to create, express and challenge.

The course is conducted in an exciting environment where theories and practices can be challenged and ideas flow. The programme foregrounds experimental media creation and the results emerge in interactive systems, websites, games, installations, galleries, performances and sometimes public spaces. We strive to create socially and culturally relevant objects, experiences and spaces. Our graduates make significant contributions to the creative, cultural and multimedia industries.
