NCEA Level 3 Media Studies - Academic

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Findley


Media studies is a multi-faceted course which focuses on a balance of analysis and production. Students will be encouraged to look closely at deeper messages within various media texts such as journalism, film and social media, with a strong focus on writing, and creating. There is a significant production standard in this course which will require students to plan and produce a short film. Some prior knowledge of editing programmes, such as iMovie or Premiere Pro, will be an advantage, as is access to a personal laptop and device for filming. Students considering media studies could be on a career pathway to journalism, public relations, communications, human resources, design work and advertising. 

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
