Media study delves into the range of Media industries, the impact they have on our lives and society, and the techniques that are used in those industries. All Media study involves both theoretical and practical work. Practical work will involve the design and creation of media products such as short films, excerpts from television shows, radio programs, newspapers, magazines and advertisements.
Media is a subject which emphasises communication skills and working with others. It also helps to improve time and resource management skills as well as emphasising creative thinking and ingenuity. Media T students can count their studies towards their ACT Senior Secondary Certificate and university requirements. The products designed and created in class can also be utilised as part of a student’s portfolio of work to be shared with universities, arts schools and future employers. The work of Media students is presented at events such as Open Night and Media Night.
