The School of Digital Media at Swansea Met offers an exciting portfolio of digital media courses, and our practice-based degrees offer an opportunity for the student to develop the key skills necessary for employment in the creative and cultural industries.
Our new programmes celebrate the combination of creative and logical thinking necessary to perform many of the cross-disciplinary functions needed in these industries: digital artists who have cultivated a rich combination of creative and technical skills and who can maintain a broad cross-disciplinary awareness. Developing people with this approach can be difficult - particularly the combination of creative and technical thinking - but it is the intention of our degree programmes to inspire such people.
The School includes a dedicated team of friendly staff, many of whom have extensive industry experience. We have strong links with industry, use the latest releases of industry-standard software, and have extensive facilities for the creation of 3D computer animation, computer games, audio, video, and interactive content for the web and mobile devices.
Being a creative digital artist one of the only thriving, pivotal industries of this extraordinarily progressive era means that you will be a key player in the social, cultural, and political transformations our society is currently going through. It means opportunity: the opportunity to contribute to and enrich the future of our global connected culture. Join us and join in.
