S’pore Poly combines 8 programmes into one diploma

11 Jun 2020

S’pore Poly combines 8 programmes into one diplomaSP has launched the new Diploma in Media, Arts & Design (DMAD) with eight specialisations to replace eight current related diploma courses. The specialisations include animation and game art, game design and development, integrated marketing communications and motion design and effects.The DMAD course allows first-semester students to take foundation modules such as in writing and design, as well as "taster" modules that will introduce them to the fundamentals of the various specialisations. To encourage students to step out of their comfort zones and broaden their learning experiences, the grades from "taster" modules will not be included in their grade point average scores. Students will then choose one specialisation to focus on for the next 21/2 years of their diploma after the first semester. They will still have the opportunity to take selected modules from the other specialisations as electives during their second and final years. SP principal and chief executive Mr Soh Wai Wah shared that the new DMAD course is part of efforts to build a competent and sought-after talent pool for the arts, design and media industries. Mr Soh also added that the future prospects of graduates from the new diploma are promising as they will be a new generation of “key-shaped” professionals who are resilient and versatile across multiple disciplines.
