Our island campus of Tasmania is the start of your journey. The Media School is uniquely co-located with leading media organisations in Hobart. You will bump shoulders and share facilities with practitioners from news, communications and other screen organisations. Outside, you’re a short walk from Parliament House, the courts, museums, galleries and performance spaces, and Hobart’s docks, which are the world’s scientific gateway to Antarctica.
From day one, you will begin building a professional portfolio. You will get your hands on industry-standard equipment and be encouraged to take risks and learn from experience with the support of industry practitioners and lecturers. Our degree provides several units to design and produce projects, such as documentaries, podcasts or brand communication so you graduate with a portfolio of work to show future employers.
Media and communications graduates are sought by many industries looking for people to tell their stories and communicate their ideas. Your degree has the added flexibility to choose units from across the University, so you can develop complementary skills in creative writing, music, photography, design, and marketing or explore enhance your understanding in international relations and politics, or the blue and green sciences.
