Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Wagner

LEARNING ACTIVITIES: This course takes an in depth look at how media of old and new communicate messages and ideas to audiences. Students will learn to read media critically, interpret sub-textual messages, research media issues, produce crafted feature writing and create a media product of their choice. We also study the horror genre. It is not necessary to have previous experience in any of the Media Studies courses. However, students should have solid writing skills and an interest in current events, the media and how these shape the world around us. This course is ideal for anyone wanting to pursue further study in the media field or the humanities.
