You should have an interest in Media.
Media Studies is a subject that encourages students to engage critically with the world of media. This half-year course is designed to encourage students to become more critical about the media that they engage with each and every day and to give students a taste of what is to come in senior Media Studies. There are two components to the course: a genre study (genre to be determined by class vote), where students will learn about the role media genres play in both society and the media industry and an advertising unit which focuses on the issues and effects of advertising in the media. Assessments for this course will be a combination of film production and written work.
This course is suited for learners who are excited about asking questions and thinking critically and/or have an interest in careers in media production, marketing, journalism and any other job based around analysis and production.
$20 approx. to cover cost of equipment upkeep and film consumables.
