This programme addresses the expanding use of digital technologies in creative/artistic production and cultural engagement. The School adopts an inter-disciplinary approach that combines technological literacy, cultural critique, research-based creativity and concept-driven perspectives. Our educational model is based on building bridges between art, science, technology and society. Students receive professional training in state-of-the-art facilities to prepare them for their future careers in the use of art, science and technology in creative industries, innovative education and cultural management.
Graduates are qualified for a broad range of positions in the media industry. The recently revised BA curriculum also addresses the professional environment in which competent and socially engaged media art professionals are needed outside the media industry. A BACM graduate should be prepared for careers in artistic and cultural fields through good networking and the ability to contribute sound knowledge of multimedia and interdisciplinary creative thinking. The design of the new curriculum also allows students to develop secondary areas of interest for broadened employability and graduate-level higher education. We expect our graduates to take up jobs in areas such as animation, film, television, video production, advertising, media art, Internet and multimedia design, art-writing, art/media education, art/cultural management and exhibition design.
