Queensland University of Technology (QUT) introduced the first undergraduate degree in 2004 at an Australian University focused specifically on television, called the Bachelor of Creative Industries. QUT brands itself as a university for the 'real world' by being vocationally oriented and hence the aim in developing the content of the degree was to make the students aware of how the television industry worked, the philosophical underpinnings of its current structure and function and how it could work differently.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
