Media Studies

 Media Studies

Media Studies invites students to analyse and explore the role of the media in our everyday lives, with a particular focus on how they reach their audiences, the institutions involved and how different groups of people, places and events are represented. Students also carry out practical tasks so that they become media producers as well as consumers.
