Media Studies is a dynamic and versatile field that responds to a rapidly changing environment and produces graduates who have the skills and knowledge to adapt to shifting communication climates. Students will engage in critical analysis, creative application, and vocational-led study in units that involve the examination and creation of various virtual and non-virtual media texts. The major sequence explores themes such as social media and surveillance, advertising and consumerism, media genre and representation, issues of piracy and censorship, and media industry processes of planning and production - areas pertinent to numerous Media and Cultural industries (incorporating digital media, film, television, marketing and advertising, among others).
