Digital Television Production is the study of all aspects of television production including broadcast and online media. This course features two pathways in either production or operations.
Both pathways on this degree will produce graduates who are highly skilled studio and location professionals who are able to work on multi or single-camera productions.
You will learn a host of skills that can be applied to a variety of television genres including cameras, lighting and sound. The course is taught through a mix of practice and theory-based learning that includes lectures, workshops, seminars, projects and self-directed study and is led by industry experts who are often working in production and broadcast.
The production pathway is designed for those who want to make innovative television programming using a variety of distribution platforms, including social media.
The operations pathway will teach you about varied production techniques and digital operations, including the use of media asset management systems.
