Digital Media program structure

At undergraduate level, you can study digital media as a foundation degree, or as a diploma or certificate qualification. These usually last a year and can help you gain entry onto a bachelor’s program, or prepare you for entry-level employment.

At bachelor’s level, digital media is usually offered as a BA, but some universities offer a BSc qualification. There is very little difference between the two, but a BSc program may include more technical modules. Most bachelor’s last three or four years, depending on where you study and if the program includes a sandwich year.

If you already have a bachelor’s in digital media or a related subject, you can expand your knowledge and skills through a postgraduate program. You can study a master’s in digital media as an MA or MSc over one or two years, and these will usually involve some teaching and research.

If you’re looking to achieve a doctorate, you can study a PhD program in digital media or a related subject. These can take four or five years to complete and are entirely based on your own unique research.

Digital media programs teach you a range of skills, so you’ll be taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical workshops. Assessment will be in the form of essays, exams and often a portfolio of your work.

The content of each program will differ based on a range of factors, but there are some common modules most courses will cover, including:

  • Fundamentals of digital media
  • Digital content creation
  • Graphic design
  • Web development
  • Web and app development
  • Communication research methods
  • Digital storytelling
  • Digital and internet policy
