Are you interested in studying a Bachelor of Media from Semester 1, 2019? To apply for an equivalent award, or for more information, please refer to the Bachelor of Media (13T). We are no longer taking applications for this version of the course (F4G).

The Bachelor of Media with Honours is a progressive, internationally recognised degree that prepares you for a career in the creative, media and information industries. Delivered through the School of Social Sciences, we provide the chance to learn from leading academics and working professionals from all areas of business, commerce and government.

  • Explore relevant media theory and develop practical skills including writing, researching and producing media, and specialise in Screen, News and Journalism, Strategic Communications, or Media Practice and Analysis.
  • Opening Semester 1, 2018 in the heart of Hobart’s cultural precinct, The Media School’s new facilities give you the opportunity to become proficient in new media technologies as they become available and use them to produce a range of content.
  • Build a portfolio of your own work through the Media Projects minor and participate in work-integrated learning opportunities, which prepare you to get the most out of an industry placement and employer interviews.

Our program has strong links with the media industry in Tasmania, nationally and across the Asia region, and offers many opportunities to work within and alongside industry. Take part in fieldtrips, internships and exchanges – many with generous scholarships – with our leading international partner institutions in Japan, Malaysia, Denmark, the Netherlands and the UK.

During your second and third year, you will develop a portfolio of media work through the Media Projects production minor. Whether you choose to undertake different projects each semester, or pursue one large-scale media project across all four, you will graduate with a significant portfolio of creative, media-related projects to show employers.

The flexible structure of the Bachelor of Media with Honours allows you to tailor your course content to suit your own interests. Dive deeper to develop your area of media specialisation, or broaden your learning across other areas of interest with a major (eight units), minor (four units) or individual elective units from across the University of Tasmania*.

During your Honours year, you have the opportunity to further hone your skills through industry and community projects locally, nationally or internationally – including the option to undertake a second internship at an advanced level. You can also apply to pursue a Research Honours year instead, with admission based on academic merit.

* Subject to any unit requisites, academic approval and course quotas.

The Future of Media:
Why Study Media In Tasmania


What skills are needed to push the media industry forward? Find out from professionals working across film, print, digital and animation who all share a connection to Tasmania. Discover why a media career is so rewarding and why Tasmania is the place to get your start.

On completion of the Bachelor of Media with Honours, graduates will be able to:

  1. Critically analyse media texts, industries, and audiences from both theoretical and practical perspectives, showing advanced awareness of local, national, and international contexts;
  2. Demonstrate coherent and in-depth knowledge of key media studies concepts, approaches, and methods;
  3. Integrate and apply this knowledge to the production of media content and to workplace practice;
  4. Demonstrate advanced analytical, practical, technical, and research skills in one of the following areas: News and Journalism; Screen; Strategic Communications; or Media Practice and Analysis;
  5. Communicate effectively and ethically across a variety of media platforms;
  6. Respond effectively and creatively to a changing media environment.

Professional practice and industry engagement is compulsory in three of the four majors (News and Journalism; Screen; and Strategic Communications) and is a prerequisite for Professional Placement (see below) involving a work-integrated learning project.

You will work as part of a team, each role playing as specialists within your chosen major, to devise and deliver media and communications content, based on a client brief and/or industry scenario. In some cases, your group may complete its media project for a real-world client.

In collaboration with an academic coordinator, industry mentors will guide you through the completion of your project, which may involve site visits, field trips, shadowing and client meetings. The units are taught through a combination of project work and intensive workshops.

An industry placement can be an invaluable part of your undergraduate degree. This is a third-year, competitive entry unit in the Bachelor of Media with Honours that consists of academic assessments combined with a workplace experience for one or two days a week.

In the Industry Placement unit, you will be assigned to a work placement that aligns with your chosen specialisation area. As part of your internship, where opportunity allows, you will contribute to the production, publication and presentation of media content while working under the supervision of a qualified professional.

The unit is delivered through a combination of work placement and seminars that focus on peer reflection and career discussion. Assessment will involve a research essay, oral presentation, and internship portfolio.
