Media Studies

media studies2

We are all exposed to the media - in its many forms - every day of our lives. Each visual or verbal text has been carefully edited to communicate particular ideas or characteristics, and it is increasingly important for us to understand how and why we are being influenced.

The Media Studies courses (Years 12 and 13) run at Sancta Maria College are designed to develop students' analytical, creative and commercial skills, as well as their powers of observation. Students are required to produce their own short films, do independent research into media issues and analyse a wide range of texts from classic films to comic strips. The ability to write essays and work independently are essential and there is a minimum entry requirement for each level.
