Course Fee €1,800 (€300 per module)
The programme is delivered entirely online using many of the same tools and technologies which also form the course curriculum. All registered students will be given access to a virtualised desktop which provides all their multimedia software and remote storage requirements for the duration of the course. This means the programme may appeal to those who, for whatever reasons, cannot commit to attending regular faceto- face lectures and labs or who simply find the flexibility and convenience of studying at a distance attractive.
The programme will provide students with a broad and practical introduction to the world of digital media design and development. Graduates will leave equipped with fundamental skills and knowledge with regard to a wide range of modern digital media technologies and design solutions and will have a systematic understanding of the design and development process and of related job roles and industries.
As such, this single semester online programme may appeal to those lacking a background in the above but with an interest in either:
- enriching their own work practices with key digital media skills and a deeper understanding of this field.
- taking the first steps in beginning an actual career in the broad digital media industry. In this latter context the award is accepted as a bridging route for applicants who are interested in undertaking the Department’s 60 credit Master of Arts in E-learning Design & Development but who do not possess the pre-requisite digital media experience or qualifications.
The programme will draw from extensive in-house expertise and facilities within the Department of Media Communications with regard to digital media production and post-production, programming and application development, user experience research, interaction design etc. The Department is home to a number of cognate programmes, in particular the BA (Hons) Creative Digital Media, the MA in Journalism & Digital Content Creation, the MA in Public Relations with New Media, and the MA in E-learning Design and Development.
Certificate in Digital Media Design and Development (Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications).
