Graduates are qualified for a broad range of positions in the media, art, design, and film industries. We expect our graduates to obtain 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. The recently revised BACM 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 to broaden their employability and graduate-level higher education opportunities.
