Media Studies

Media Studies is about the active exploration, analysis, creation and enjoyment of the media and its products. Media Studies examines the dynamic role of the media in society, how the media constructs messages about individuals, communities and cultures, and how media products are produced, controlled and distributed. Through media studies students gain the knowledge and skills to conceive, plan, design and make media products that engage audiences. Students develop the skills to become informed, discriminating citizens in a constantly changing, interconnected world.
