Content

The aim of the BSc (Hons) in Interactive Media is to give you a professional grounding in the development of interactive and digital media products while allowing you the scope to specialise in a number of key areas and work with external clients on real industry projects.

The term 'interactive media' defines a collection of disparate technologies which provide a user experience using digital platforms. These range from websites, mobile apps, software applications and even interactive installations. Digital content creation goes hand-in-hand with an understanding of interactive media and disciplines such as graphic design, animation, video and audio production, all form part of the subject area.

Graduates from this degree will: be equipped to think creatively; have a solid foundation of knowledge in a number of key technical areas; and have the confidence and ability to enter a workplace environment, become self-employed or form a start-up company.
