BA (Hons) Digital Media - Year 2 (University of Stirling)

Please note that due to COVID-19, this course will initially be delivered via a blended learning approach, which may include face-to-face learning in the classroom, remote learning off-campus and digital learning. When delivery is taking place on-campus, there will be reduced student numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

This multimedia course is designed to support students who wish to pursue a career in the vibrant, fast paced media industry. Students will develop skills across a range of media specialisms including television, film, radio, print and online. They will explore the tools, applications and industry practice of the digital environment, creating content and sharing it across a range of platforms through FVC's multimedia digital platform Connect Forth.

With a strong focus on practical skills, the course will also develop an in-depth understanding of ethical and legal considerations of working within the media industry.

The programme combines the technical and theoretical media skills and industry insights of Forth Valley College with the advanced academic training and up-to-date digital expertise of the University of Stirling.
