Media Industries

Making media begins with understanding the industry.

We believe media is central to communication in modern society. Media influences how we understand ourselves, and the challenges our world faces. That’s why we offer Media Industries at Swinburne.

Media Industries offers a holistic understanding of media across multiple platforms and practices, including film, television, the internet, advertising and more. We provide the skills and the strategic thinking to prepare you for a career in this quick-moving field. You’ll also hear from professionals and learn how to make connections within this industry. It’s our way of ensuring you graduate with the skills to get ahead in media.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to put your knowledge into practice. Future careers can be found as media and communication advisers and strategists in multimedia organisations, journalism broadcasting, policy and government.

Take on a Grand Challenge

Is the Great Australian Dream of a quarter acre block dead? Will we be renters for life? How can we afford decent housing? In her final-year Grand Challenges project, Joanna Hajjar (pictured) wrestled with those questions and developed solutions alongside experts and fellow students.  

You too could dive into a Grand Challenge of your own, covering topics like sustainable cities or digital transformations in collaboration with the Centre for Urban Transitions.
