Creative Media

Attentive to social and cultural differences, and to the question of ethics and the workings of power, we explore a range of media related developments through community and participatory media, media literacy, sonic and visual media, media ethics and politics, media pedagogy, sustainability and digital cities, and the role of ICTs in our daily lives. Of particular note is the relationship between theory and practice. Assignments are organised so that students can create innovative cycles of production and reflection through writing, photography, curriculum design, film making, and/or community and participatory media. Students are able to complete more conventional written work, but there are also many opportunities for dynamic relationships between sound and words, vision and text to develop. The students are granted flexibility in content, form and delivery. This flexibility is increased through the availability of online distance education modules. Not only is it possible to complete the entire degree through distance mode, but such an option assists part-time students who may move around the country, as is common with both workers in the media and media educators. Instead of disrupting their studies, they will be able to simply switch modes from on campus to distance. There are also opportunities to complete shorter programmes in Creative Media at postgraduate certificate and postgraduate diploma level. There are three core modules for the Masters; students tailor the rest of their course by choosing from a range of options. Postgraduate diploma students complete two core modules and can select four other areas of interest. Postgraduate certificate students can choose any three modules to complete the qualification.
