The media occupies a central place in our society and culture and makes a significant contribution to the world around us. As new media and communication technologies are introduced, and delivery costs of content decrease, we are entering an entirely new era of media production and consumption. A major in Media Studies enables you to undertake a sequence of units focusing on contemporary media forms and practices. This specialised area of study draws together a mix of units, some with an emphasis on analysis and research, and some with a large hands-on practical component, including cinema studies, digital radio and television production. The final two units of this major are designed to engage students in content connected to the principles and practices of professionalism, entrepreneurship, innovation and design characteristics related to the specialist area.
