BA Honours in Digital Arts

Specialist Streams in Animation, Game Design, Writing and Interactivity and Interactive Media

This one year full-time (or two-year part-time) programme is ideally suited for students with a three-year degree who wish to prepare for entry to a Masters programme in Digital Arts, or for those who simply wish to add a year of Digital Media expertise to their existing degree. The Digital Arts Honours programme will introduce you to the key debates in current theory together with practice courses in your chosen field. You will also get the opportunity to take your interests further in a supervised research project.

There are four options for the BA Honours in Digital Arts. This degree can be done in the specialist focus areas of animation, writing and interactivity, interactive media or game design. All Honours options are accompanied by either a long essay or research project, as well as a theoretical component as compulsory subjects. 

Admission Requirements for the BA Honours in Digital Art:

  • An appropriate Undergraduate Degree (equivalent to an NQF level 7).
  • Short written motivation as to why you would like to pursue an Honours degree in one of the focus areas, or how and why you would wish to combine areas.
  • A creative portfolio for evaluation. Portfolios must be digital and should consist of work showing skills in either digital design, animation, interactive media or game design.
  • A writing sample – an essay or an academic article written in the last 24 months.
