B.Sc. in Multimedia (Bachelor Honours Degree)

The B.Sc. in Multimedia at DCU is a programme for those who are creative, enquiring, and interested in the creation of engaging and interactive media experiences.

You need a creative, enquiring outlook and an interest in the creation of engaging and interactive media experiences. Our graduates are highly successful designers, developers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs and scholars. If, like them, you are intrigued by the relationship we have to media and digital technologies in our lives, and want to explore, improve and expand that relationship, this is the course for you.

You do not need existing skills or practical experience in the analysis or design of media. You should enjoy working with digital technologies and be interested in problem solving, creative expression and working in focused team projects. The various modules will introduce you to a range of core skills from which you can build and specialise. 

If you are coming to us as a mature student, you will have an interest in digital and media technologies. Your experience and enthusiasm for these areas will allow you to contribute to a team-focused course that provides a solid foundation in the creative industries and gives you opportunities to specialise.
