Degree level study
The Bachelor of Screen Arts is a three year full-time programme in the exciting arena where creative arts meet digital technology. The programme allows students to specialise in either digital film or animation. A wide range of subjects is covered, including digital film production, editing, screenwriting, 2D and 3D animation, stop motion, motion graphics, and business and legal skills.
Skills to adapt and evolve
The programme aims to give you not only solid technical expertise, while expanding your creative skills and to give you the ability to adapt in a rapidly changing industry. Abilities in storytelling, character development, research and critical thinking are enduring, irrespective of future technology. While the technical side is an important part of the programme, the primary focus is on bringing creative ideas to life.
