Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Tanielu

The media plays a huge part in shaping our understanding of the world. Through Media Studies, students explore the effects of mass media such as film, television, social media, music, news, print media and radio on society and how we view the world. Media studies challenges and empowers students to analyse and interpret media content and to become more informed and think critically about the media’s role in everyday life. Students who study media also develop skills that will enable them to communicate their creative ideas through various mediums such as film, blogs, vlogs and advertising. Media studies is a great pathway for careers such as journalism, director/ filmmaker, TV presenter, advertising, radio broadcaster and film producer.
