The Bachelor of Media from University of Tasmania has strong links with the media industry in Tasmania, nationally and across the Asia region, and offers many opportunities to work within and alongside industry. Take part in fieldtrips, internships and exchanges – many with generous scholarships – with our leading international partner institutions in Japan, Malaysia, Denmark, the Netherlands and the UK.

During your second and third year, you will develop a portfolio of media work through the Media Projects production units. Whether you choose to undertake different projects each semester, or pursue one large-scale media project across all four, you will graduate with a significant portfolio of creative, media-related projects to show employers.

The flexible structure of the Bachelor of Media allows tailor your course content to suit your own interests. Dive deeper to develop your area of media specialisation, or broaden your learning across other areas of interest with the equivalent of a second major (eight units) or minor (four units), or individual elective units from across the University of Tasmania.


Understanding the media is now an essential role in a range of careers. By combining analysis of media industries, and the production and consumption of media, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to work in a broad range of professions and environments.
