The Bachelor of Entertainment Production offers students exposure to an array of production and programming contexts in the entertainment industries. Apply now to start a new journey.
The course combines prerequisite Entertainment Production units with elective units that allow you to develop and maintain complementary studies in related fields. Deakin is committed to providing students with a degree that combines, as closely as possible, creative potential with workplace know-how.
The first year introduces students to key concepts in Entertainment Production. The second year develops skills in distributing and programming entertainment, giving hands on experience in pitching, budgeting, and programming live events. The third year builds professional skills in the workplace and concludes with an Entertainment Industries Work Placement.
All units are taught in a collaborative manner in small seminar groups that allow students to maximize their learning potential. Dedicated workstations encourage individual work as well as group projects.
Assessment tasks focus on real world problems, developing creative problem solving skills. In the first year, students promote an independent film in Melbourne. In the second year, they produce and program their own festival and event. During the third year, they move into the workplace. At the completion of the degree, students have developed professional networks and workplace-ready skills.Read More
