Bachelor of Media with Bachelor of Creative Arts

Why combine Media with Creative Arts?  

The media and creative arts industries are intimately linked, with each supporting and fuelling the other. This new double degree—unique in South Australia—will give you complementary capability in both.

Each program combines a solid core of theoretical and real-world industry knowledge with extensive hands-on production skills. You will also have significant scope and flexibility to tailor course selections to suit your creative interests and career aspirations.

You’ll graduate well equipped to launch your career and take advantage of strong predicted employment growth in both industries.

What will you do?

  • Build advanced creative and social skills.
  • Take production courses focusing on digital and interactive media, storytelling, reporting, music, radio and video production.
  • See behind the scenes of a major arts event through our partnership with the Adelaide Festival.
  • Study theory in your areas of interest, from philosophy and ethics to art history and visual cultures.
  • Gain valuable work experience with media organisations and the creative arts industry.
