The key digital content skills that form the basis for the curriculum include: idea development and pitching, directing and camera skills, editing, business skills and the theory and context of factual documentary.

When you graduate with a BA (Hons) degree in Digital Content Creation, your career avenues may include: Shooting Producer/Director, Field Director, 'Preditor' (all-in- one film-maker who shoots, directs and edits) or Cameraperson, to name just a few.
