Media Studies engages students in the in depth study of media products in relation to the four areas of the theoretical framework: media language, media representation, media industries and media audiences. Students are required to study media products from all the following media forms: television, film, radio, newspaper, magazines, advertising & marketing, online, social & participatory media, video games and music videos. This course allows students to view, evaluate and analyse a variety of media products, and develop practical skills spanning a range of media forms. Students will explore how media industries work, who their audiences are, how various people are represented by them, and how their products are put together. Furthermore, students will develop creative skills in the designing of your own media products.
