The Multimedia design program at Monash University develops your skills in digital communication environments. This includes: designing for the web; motion and animation; and interactive touchscreen devices and surfaces. 


The Multimedia design program at Monash University embraces projects of varied scale, from hand-held smart devices to large public interactive screens. It develops your ability to build a communication narrative; use multimedia processes to fill community and business needs; and understand the end-user’s engagement with projects or products such as websites, apps and other screen-based media.

The studio units bring together practical design skills with the conceptual thinking required of contemporary digital communication environments. This includes an astute ability to construct a communication narrative, strategically and meaningfully engage multimedia processes with broader community and business needs, and understand the end-user's intuitive and iterative engagement with a project (web site, app and other screen-based media). The final year of study provides the opportunity for you to pursue a major project, or extend your skills by participating in a leading industry project.

  • engage critically with design theory, concepts and methods
  • understand the relationship of design to cultural, environmental, ethical, technological and professional contexts and practices
