University rank #401 (ARWU) ,
Modern information technology offers the possibility of information products being designed and created comprising various types of media over and above the traditional text medium. Information technology therefore results in the convergence of various previously separate traditional media.

About

There is not a single discipline that handles the combination of information products. The multimedia qualification in the department of Information science addresses this shortcoming. Any type of institution in all economic spheres including government may profit from a multimedia approach to information design organisation and retrieval.

Multimedia documents include text graphics sound video and animation. The purpose of this qualification is to enable students to understand the necessary concepts to build multimedia products and maintain the products. This programme is therefore a combination of theory and practice. The explosion of the web as well as the exponential growth and power of information technology requires the introduction of this degree following international trends.

This master's degree is conferred by virtue of a dissertation.
