AIMS OF MINOR
The School of Creative Media offers both a practical training in digital media and a critical reflection upon the role of technology in mediating our understanding of the world. Our goal is to produce thinking digital media artists, designers, and technologists.
The Minor programme in Creative Media provides students both with a practical engagement in one or more of fields of creative media--animation, gaming, sound, photography and cinema, and new media--and with classes that examine the relationship between culture, society and new technologies.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES OF MINOR
Upon successful completion of the Minor, students should be able to:
Identify and read with understanding the social implications of digital materials that define our environment.
Understand the methodologies deployed by the makers of creative media.
Possess rudimentary operational understanding of planning, techniques and skills possessed by those professions working in the field. This will enable more efficient and effective interaction with such workers in future work environments.
