Graduate Diploma in Digital Media

Explore the processes and theory behind digital transformation and position yourself as digital media practitioner with the Graduate Certificate in Digital Media.

Our curriculum is flexible, regularly updated and informed by our course advisory panel which includes representatives from industry and government. We review developments such as app creation, game production, search engine optimisation, content strategy and social network analytics. The programme is grounded in the practice of user experience design (UX) and students are exposed to industry methodologies such as a 'scrum’.

Students exit the course with a portfolio containing examples of industry artefacts (including user journeys and user testing process). It's possible to undertake a work placement or internship within the programme to further develop your industry skills.

Based in facilities at our City Flinders campus, timetables are designed for the busy professional. 

This graduate diploma is the second stage of a nested suite of three courses that make up the Masters of Digital Media. The first stage is a Graduate Certificate in Digital Media. Alternatively, students can enrol directly in the Master of Digital Media course.

Completion of one stage gives you credit towards the next. You can choose to exit at the graduate certificate or graduate diploma level. An admission requirement for this course is a Bachelor degree in any discipline. Applicants with a Bachelor degree in the area of Digital Media can receive six months' credit.
