Master of Digital Media

Victoria University (VU)

Digital media is at the point where 'average' users can achieve amazing outcomes: films, sound recordings, and magazines. Software and other digital products can be co-opted by people without substantial training for their own purposes. In the near future, it is possible that 'average' users will be able to configure their digital environments in fashions not imaginable now. So who is the digital media professional in this exciting and continually changing landscape? Community, industry and academia require graduates who can be leaders of digital media production; assisting others (individuals, community or commercial enterprises) to reach their goals using digital media, understanding and critiquing the potential of current and future technology, and generating research to push the limits of the field. This course is a postgraduate programme in the practice and theory of digital media innovation. To contribute to the culture of content creation (for instance, for mobiles, games and digital TV), the course focuses on the intersection of video and cross-media production for a range of different contexts including sport, entertainment and business. There are options for students who already have experience in digital media and also for students who have not yet had the opportunity to study in this area. To provide flexibility, the course structure has three exit points, Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters.

Victoria University is the only university in Australia to use the block teaching model, which has been in operation throughout Sweden and parts of North America for more than four decades.

First-year and second-year students at Victoria University complete one subject every four weeks, are assessed, and then proceed to the next four-week unit. Immersion in each subject allows students to master it, rather than juggling four units at once. From 2020, all students will be taught in this way.

Victoria University is one of only six Australian universities to combine higher education and vocational and further education with its Victoria University Polytechnic, which is based on multiple university campuses. The Polytechnic creates pathways direct to the workforce or to university degrees.

VU College offers English language courses, pathway diplomas and courses for international students at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses as well as offshore with international education partners.
