Forever a part of the Murdoch family
Welcome to the Alumni Hub of the School of Media and Communications, where we celebrate the incredible journeys of our graduates. Our alumni are a living testament to the impact of our programs and the boundless potential of a media and communications education.


Alumni Contributions 

At the School of Media and Communications, our alumni are more than just graduates; they are valued contributors to our school's ongoing success. Many have given back in various ways, from participating in industry codesign, codelivery  and endorsement of our courses to conducting guest lectures. Like the Senior UX Consultant Laura Egerton, a Murdoch alumni,  who has recently contributed to the revision and evaluation of some UX units in the Graphic Design major.  Chay Yohansen has provided master classes in animation using his experience as a Rigger and Creature FX Designer for Weta Digital, working on films such as Avengers Infinity War and War of the Planet of the Apes.

Some of our alumni continue to work with us, bringing their diverse industry experience back to the classroom.  Daniel Wearing, a Murdoch graduate and now Games Art and Design lecturer, has returned to Murdoch to teach after several years working as a concept artist in the games industry. Mary-Anne Romano, also a Murdoch alumni, is a journalist, communications and public relations professional with 20 years of industry and academia experience; now teaches in the journalism and strategic communication disciplines.

Murdoch prepared me for industry work. Now as an educator I have the opportunity to continue the Games Art program's commitment to relevant, industry-focused teaching.
