What is Global Media and Culture
At its core, Global media and culture is about the media we produce and consume. The media production of today is interactive and audience driven, and we are all able to be producers of media, content and culture. Fandoms, fan culture and fan studies are no longer niche aspects of media and society, they represent a significant segment of the media and cultural world of today.
To say media is global and culture transcends borders and boundaries is an understatement. We live in a globalized world, with access to media instant and constant, and exposure to different cultures and ways of life a daily occurrence. By understanding more about global media and culture flows, we can become active participants and leaders – rather than passive observers – in the rapidly changing world of today.
Media specialists are in extremely high demand. All industries and fields of work need people who know how to communicate and know how to make and use media to communicate. Graduates from the Bachelor of Communication and Media degree could work in positions such as:
Digital Media Specialist – Organize and manage digital media creation, curation and aggregation for any business in the world. If a company or industry doesn’t have a team of digital media specialists now, they will in the very near future.
Social Media Manager – Manage social media accounts for a specific company or work for a company that offers social media account management services. If you like engaging with people via social media, this could be the job for you.
Video Production – Video production, from editing to scripting to graphic overlays, is another in demand field. You could work for a company specializing in video production, or start your own company offering video editing services.
Graphic Design – If you like design work, layout, making logos and branding templates, a job as a graphic designer is perfect for you!
Digital Marketing Specialist – Marketing teams need people with media making skills. If you like to make media, but have an affinity for business, this could be a great job for you!
