The media shapes our understanding of the world, reflecting and communicating aspects of our public and private lives and contributing to the creation of personal, social, cultural, and national identities, enabling our students to become effective digital citizens.
Media studies challenges and empowers students to analyse and interpret media content and to become more informed and think critically about the media and its role in everyday life.
The media is often controlled by powerful corporate interests. Media makers interpret events and shape how we view the world. Students learn to recognise the things that influence the media.
The media is constantly changing. The progress of technology, mobility, connectivity, and digitisation is generating new channels and media formats. Students are increasingly participating in this dynamic new environment. Through active engagement with the media, they will deepen their awareness of the nature and purpose of these changes. We will provide ample opportunity to embed a strong set of values and beliefs, leaving students with the cultural capital to be responsible citizens. We are providing education for living in a connected world.
