Why study media?

Media are central to contemporary life.

With contemporary equipment, facilities and leading academics and industry practitioners who understand the importance of both making and analysing media, The Media School will be the first of its kind in Australia when it opens for Semester 1, 2018.

Our partners include Australia’s most significant media and creative institutions including MONA, AFTRS, Fairfax, News Corp and the ABC. You will have the opportunity to work with their staff and contribute to the current and future media and screen industries.

You will be a part of Tasmania’s creative community fuelled by internationally renowned museums, galleries, media and screen productions and events.

I absolutely love sitting in front of the camera and reading the news every night. I have to admit, I never thought that I would be lucky enough to have that job. I feel like I’m one of the luckiest people in the world.

Careers in media

We are surrounded by stories. They are a powerful means for communicating ideas. Media professionals use stories as vessels for information, to create emotional and political connections, to form cultural identities, and to prompt social and environmental change.

Challenge understandings of the world, our communities, and ourselves through your lens.

Be a filmmaker. Reveal the latest innovations in music, sport, fashion, technology or health as a website or publications editor. Tell the story of the world’s iconic brands or launch an innovative product using games and video on social media in advertising. Support local communities or nations in times of transformation or crisis, bringing their stories to television or radio.

The Bachelor of Media and Bachelor of Media with Honours give you access to a wide range of ever changing media-related fields. You will gain the context and experience to shape not only stories with impact, but the entire future of the industry.
