Bachelor of Creative Media

Dive in to the professional side of design, games, apps, videos, documentary, drama, film, television and much more with a Bachelor of Creative Media at Murdoch. 

Start-ups need graphic designers to make what they’re offering the world stand out. Community and conservation groups need amazing photography to capture their stories. Hollywood blockbusters and independent films rely on outstanding sound design and visual effects to make an impact with audiences.

These are just some examples – the ways you could work in creative media across the world are limitless.

Take your Bachelor of Creative Media in a direction you’re most passionate about. You might explore games art and design processes, learn about animation, 3D modelling, concept art, and designing for mobile and virtual reality platforms. Hear about Bachelor of Creative Media student Rhianna’s journey majoring in Games Art and Design.

You could also develop your skills as an image creator and learn the latest digital imaging techniques with a major in graphic design or photography. You might go behind-the-scenes and work in the world of screen production or sound.

You can also combine this course with another discipline – for example by combining it with a Bachelor of Communications. This means you’ll graduate with two qualifications and even more professional skills and experience to kick-start your career.
