The Computer Science/Media Arts double degree provides both a technical and creative foundation to the development and use of computer graphics. It also allows specialisation in either the technical or creative strand of computer graphics and associated fields.
The Computer Science component emphasises comprehension of the basic principles behind computing tools, operating systems, compilers and translators, and computer hardware. You will study the representation of data and data structures and the design of algorithms, as well as the creation of hardware and software tools and the role of non-computing elements in the design and development process.
The Media Arts degree aims to develop the intellectual and critical expertise for students to make an impact in the arts and cultural sector. You will gain hands-on skills in a studio-based learning environment, complemented by theoretical studies that encourage critical thinking, contextual awareness and creative problem-solving.
