Selected major: Photomedia

Photomedia is the future of image creation and visual storytelling. Gain exposure to various technological approaches and media platforms that highlight the intersections between photography and design, art direction, digital video, event design or installation. Develop the conceptual and technical skills in story-telling that are required to create sophisticated campaigns, publications and digital products. 

Design is central to our everyday lives, from the websites we browse, to the clothes we wear, or simply getting from A to B. Swinburne’s global reputation for design excellence now gives you even more advantage with our unique Bachelor of Design/Bachelor of Applied Innovation double degree.

These combined degrees provide a unique range of skills and knowledge to get a head start in the evolving and dynamic design and innovation industries.

Your design studies delve into a comprehensive variety of core subjects such as typography, digital media, and brand and identity design. You’ll also benefit from a host of Work Integrated Learning opportunities, including placements, internships or industry-linked projects tailored to your chosen major.

While design is innovative by nature, your studies in applied innovation can complement your abilities – and your career potential – in many ways. Develop your interdisciplinary collaboration, facilitation, and complex problem-solving skills in real-world contexts. Conceive, develop and deliver transformative projects around your passions and interests. Leverage analytical and strategic thinking, human understanding, and respect for future generations, with the technological know-how to build a better future.

Whether you’re interested in a career in design specialising in disciplines such as graphic design, multimedia design, UX or interactive design, or want to pursue roles such as innovation lead, strategic designer and innovation strategist, this double degree is made for you.
