| Unit Description
Integral to communication today are what are known as the creative industries. This unit explores the nature, processes and products of these industries, with case studies ranging from film, television and new screens to writing and publishing. Practical activities support study of the processes through which cultural products are made and circulated in the digital communications environment. The creative industries are explored as an area of employment associated with certain work and career patterns. They are also seen to intersect with many other contexts where communication, research and creativity are valued. The unit aims to equip students with knowledge and skills relevant to the creative industries and transferable to diverse work and community contexts.
