The Master of Interactive and Digital Media engages students in the creative exploration of interactive design for web and hand-held devices. The degree is coordinated by Mr Ryszard Dabek

Through a structured program, students develop skills in screen-based design, and project design, development and delivery across a range of protocols and platforms. The degree is ideal for professionals looking for a career in the digital media sector, who wish to engage critically with interactive media and have their practical training supported by a broad vision of cultural production.

Course structure

MIDM students develop a major self-directed creative project each semester. Practice seminars provide the technical skills necessary for the development of the project, and students are introduced to the history and theory of new media through dedicated units. Students choose from a range of electives offered by SCA, the Faculty of Arts and School of Information Technology, including rich internet applications, video post-production and digital effects, sound production and animation.

The MIDM is a one-year full time course structured over two semesters that may be undertaken on a part-time basis.

The course is approved for Centrelink student income support. Please contact Centrelink on 13 2490 for further information.
