Media Studies

UPDATED 20161003 13:12:25

This course introduces students to the wonderful and vibrant world of media. It’s a subject that enables students to sharpen their analytical intellect but viewing the media world that surrounds them through a critical prism. The media shapes our everyday thoughts and feelings and Media Studies supports students in challenging existing paradigms and hegemonic models as they develop an independent understanding of how media industries operate. Alongside the theoretical approach to understanding the media students also have the unique opportunity to demonstrate their creative tendencies as they engage in a number of practical projects. The application of theory into practice is what makes Media Studies such a dynamic, challenging and wholly rewarding subject. Led by a teaching team of experienced practitioners, each with their own particular media specialisms, Media Studies offers a supportive and developmental environment in which students are encouraged to put in their best effort to develop their analytical faculties. As a department, Media Studies is well resourced with a suite of Macbooks for exclusive use of media students.
