Course Outline:

This group-work orientated course aims to develop practical, “real world” media skills.  There is a strong focus on students developing their own concepts for media products and publishing them.  Typically the areas of learning are:  radio, event marketing, short film and investigative journalism.

Media Production develops skills which are useful in a wide variety of media careers. The course improves students’ self-confidence and their ability to organise their work, problem-solve, keep to deadlines and work as part of a team. It also challenges students to engage in critical viewing of media content.
