As a Creative Media student at TU Dublin Tallaght, you’ll be thinking, designing and creating from your first days in the door. The course attracts ambitious, talented people who want a practical, hands-on education that prepares them for careers in the media and cultural sectors. An exciting range of practice-based modules allows students to specialize as they move through the programme. You’ll also be studying and discussing the role of the media in society keeping an eye to emerging 21st century social and technological trends.
Our practical modules and specialist workshops are in the areas of digital content creation across video, multimedia, photography, radio and sound production. You’ll cover all these subjects in the first two years and as you develop your understanding of the technologies, their storytelling potential and your industry interests, you get to choose which path you want to follow. Project work throughout the programme includes the production of short dramas, documentaries and music videos, as well as 2D and 3D animations, website design and photographic portfolios. Frequently you’ll be working for real world clients so the expectations are high, the deadlines are real and the experience is intense!

Our programme takes limited numbers to ensure each student has access to equipment and one-on-one tutoring throughout the four years. Our graduates have gone on to work throughout regional, national and international media and cultural industries including RTE, TV3, BBC, TG4, Google, Facebook, Windmill Lane and the Gallery of Photography. Our past students have worked on major productions such as Room, Game of Thrones, Rebellion, Vikings, Ripper Street, 28 Days Later and many more. Graduates have gone on to complete postgraduate studies in related disciplines such as Documentary Photography, Journalism, Interactive Digital Media and Art in the Digital World.
