Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Wagner

LEARNING ACTIVITIES: Media will interest those who are keen to explore the world around them, examine the landscape of media culture and become aware of how it shapes us and how we shape it. This course is ideal for students with a creative flair who are interested in analysing how the media works. Throughout the year students will engage with representation, the relationship between the Western genre and society. They will also plan and produce their own silent film or instructional video and craft a feature article. 

Creative abilities combined with a critical understanding of the visual media can lead to careers in academia, advertising, communications, publishing, marketing and promotional work, television and film, journalism, public relations.
